About this Item

Contents Preface. 1. Caste and social stratification in western society. 2. Caste system and casteism in India. 3. Corruption and political institutions. 4. Objectives of social development and their implementation. 5. Role of religion in social development. 6. Indian democracy and social development. 7. Conclusions and suggestions. Appendix. Index. India after independence adopted the British model of democracy whose main objectives are to provide justice social economic and political equality of status as well as of opportunity assuring the dignity of the individual. During the last fifty five years or so the Central and the State Governments took various measures to achieve these objectives through legislation and economic social and cultural activities through successive Five Year Plans. No doubt there has been some progress in achieving some of these objectives but in attaining social and economic equality and equality of status as well as of opportunity there have been some hurdles. These are casteism corruption lavish living of upper class people lack of work culture among many educated people having secured employment distaste for business and manual work illiteracy and certain religious beliefs among the masses. Thus adult literacy along with some minimum education for all children reinterpretation of religious books and reorganization of religious institutions are essential to remove these hurdles as it happened in the western countries. No doubt some efforts were made by the government in this direction after appointing some commissions and committees in this field. Similarly saints scholars and social workers also made attempts to remove these hurdles by organizing conferences and seminars in these fields. However the achievement of these objectives is still not in sight. Some suggestions in this regards have been made in this book on the basis of some past literature available in this field. 200 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 52743
