This book provides an expansive insight into the processes of poverty from the ground without making a poster out of it. It fills a gap at assessment of India in a non text book fashion.
This could easily be one of the finest specimens of journalism.
More than two and a half decades after this was first published, this book remains relevant, as the agents of society remain much the same , albeit with newer complexities and far sophisticated social and technological interactions in place. I sincerely hope the author and those behind this, come up with a fresh 2020s revisit of the book as a some sort of sequel.

Also the narration is good.

Definitely recommended!

The book is well written and summarises the story behind many conflict areas. Ofcourse all conflicts arise from a complex mesh of past and present cultural-economic-demographic dynamics and is not possible to cover in a book that seeks to encompass a little bit into many matters. It is nonetheless quite informative for someone looking to introduce oneself into various global issues. The book sort of provides a window into the topics for further reading and was helpful for me that ways. The tone/language is easy and mostly free from any biases, opinions , condescension etc.
Overall... i'd rate this book well.
