A book like The Ripped Chest might cover any one of the major groups of those who suffer poverty, discrimination and marginalisation. Instead, it covers them all the rural poor, or slumdwellers and the homeless or tribal people, or dalits from dams and other projects and with convincing detail. The evidence is that, however benign the intentions, what happens on the ground is often perverse, leaving poor people not empowered and prospering but weaker and poorer than before.
