The principal aim of the book is to unravel the narrowness of India’s official definition of poverty that results in underestimation of it. The government’s euphoria over its success in bringing down headcount poverty in recent time is watered down by the revelation of pervasive malnutrition among women and children in India. Something, therefore, is wrong with the official estimation. Poverty must not be construed as a state of consumption deficits or income deficits. Poverty, in its comprehensible implication, has been plaguing our fellow beings in different corners of the world. Fast growing India seems to be smug in sheltering millions of destitute citizens. The hollowness of our remarkable growth story has come to the fore. Fruits of our growth are being pocketed by the upper strata of our society. Inclusive growth could be materialized only if quality education and health care for all are provided under the auspices of the state.
