Synopsis: Renowned economist Isher Judge Ahluwalia addresses India's urban issues Indian cities are desperately in need of transformation.Whether it is the lack of public parks, playgrounds for children, easy and affordable means of public transport, footpaths wide enough for pedestrians to walk on, or indeed the basic amenities of water and sanitation, our cities and towns present a sorry sight. Urban planning in our cities is conspicuous by its absence with congested roads, chaotic traffic, crowded commercial areas and cramped housing as their hallmarks.On an average, 25 per cent of India's urban population lives in slums. This book documents how things have gone from bad to worse and how we have not seen the worst yet. On the brighter side, it shows glimpses of some cities solving their problems and bringing about perceptible improvements in the standards of living they offer their residents. They are pulling up their socks and transforming themselves, and therein lies the hope that the rest of us can shape up and learn from their example.

About the Author: Isher Judge Ahluwalia is an economist and was chairperson of India's highpowered expert committee on urban infrastructure and services from 2008 to 2011. She was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2009 for her services in the field of education and literature. She is married to Planning Commission Deputy Chairman, Montek Singh Ahluwalia.
