About the Book :

With the industrial development in India accompanied by urbanization and expansion of commerce, large towns and cities have grown, isolation of the villages have been broken and the country has now considerable experience in the field of modern business, industry and finance. However, the development which has taken place is partial and limited in terms of country needs and potentialities. But, for the community as a whole, the economic development has brought no significant improvement in standards of living and opportunities for employment and has to some extent accentuated the inequalities of income and wealth. The challenge of 21st century require total newness on all fronts. This book is an attempt of codify various experiences which can help and facilitate acceleration of smooth change. There are no permanent solutions because there can never be, but, some direction is proposed in this regard. While part one tackles various marketing issues, part two looks at the training attitude and part three examines some policy issues. The book is bound to be useful for planners and NGOs as well as prove invaluable to research workers in the field of development planning.

About Author :

Kamal Taori belongs to the UP cadre of the 1968 batch of the I.A.S. He had a short stint in the army and has doctorate in Rural entrepreneurship. He has been with the Khadi and Village Industries Sector for nearly 12 years. This was his opportunity for a deeper understanding of Gandhi, Vinoba, Lohia and Kumarappa and to sublimate his ambition into a mission with holistic action. A short assignment with the UNDP, and subsequent study of the United Nations system were helpful in the convergence of his lifelong studies, experience and understanding into a world-view and a global vision. He is always concerned about what could have been done, as against what has been done. A Social Science Scientific researcher and author of a number of books and research papers, he has organized and led many a seminar and workshop on a whole range of socio-economic issues and topics.
