Gautha Books, 2007 - Kerala (India) - 544 pages
This book celebrates Kerala in the fiftieth year of its existence as a state of the Indian union - the State that has braved all odds to emerge as a showpiece of social sector-centered thinking on development. This collection of 37 essays is comprised of personal experiences, perceptions, critiques and opinions on diverse themes related to Kerala s metamorphosis during the past fifty years. In this book, authors from diverse background attempt to narrate the events and causes, which led to the State s achievements and also to analyze the reasons for the tardiness in attaining success in many important domains. Changes in the life-style of people, outcome of administrative reforms, Kerala s experiments with socialism, People s science movement and impact of globalization are some of the areas, which have been reviewed here. A large number of articles are concerned with the subject of health. Their focus is on the changing pattern of diseases and its basis. Looking beyond medicine and social sciences, there are also articles, which deal with crimes, education, performing art and humor.
