Mystic Inclusion Surgical strikes for inclusive inclusion

Author Name: Dr. V. Rengarajan | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

In the context of much touted ‘inclusive economic growth’ the urgency of the concern is to discern the fact on a) what has happened ‘after the inclusion’ so far achieved, in the demand side from deontological perspectives? b) Is the inclusion also inclusive enough? C)Is there any unceremonious exclusion after ceremonious inclusion made through inclusion oriented interventions without ensuring sustainability? This monograph seeks to probe the fact empirically.

The ‘Inclusion’ of the excluded has two dimensions viz., Spatial or geographical inclusion and Human inclusion. From economic growth perspectives, the term ‘Inclusive inclusion’ requires a holistic inclusion of area qualitatively with the integrated productive connectivity infrastructure for running sustainable economic activities. This Aside, from development orientation, as a corollary to the so called inclusive inclusion demands a comprehensive human development of the people in the included habitation. In the context of nonappearance of these qualitative dimensions of inclusive inclusion, any claim, with mere numerically supported inclusion, for any inclusion oriented intervention for that matter, be it concerned with social, education, health and financial one, symbolizes only a “Mystic inclusion.” A critical analysis has been made on a slew of empirically tested evaluative findings for demystifying the hidden truth on the impact of the inclusion. As a way forward, Bharthya approach is suggested focusing on Indianization of planning system at district level and indigenization of the product and services that suit the marginalized people at the bottom level of poverty pyramid, has been made for facilitating candid inclusion from ‘Make in India’ perspectives. Towards this end, for the benefit of the research students and academic institutions, some useful hypotheses on the inclusion and poverty are presented for testing in future studies and developing new theories for filling large gap on the subject in social science.
