    Panthapalli A. Augustine, 54, was born at Anicad in the Kottayam district of Kerala. After his early education he studied for ministry in the church. But soon after entering ministry, dissatisfied with its traditional forms and impelled by, a consuming interest in current affairs, he took up freelance journalism in the early 1970s. He never looked back. Barring a brief stint when he worked with a Delhi based journal, he has been freelancing ever since. His contributions have appeared in a variety of Indian periodicals. His more recent writings, which include a few monographs, are marked with a deep concern for human rights. It is this concern that led him to write Social Equality in Indian Society: The Elusive Goal. He has travelled widely in India anis thus well acquainted with conditions in most parts of India.
