Dalit in Action
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 817022604X / 9788170226048; Hardcover; New; New; 
The context of increasing marginalization of the poor on account of the failure of the state to ensure effective development has been conducive to the proliferation of the voluntary organisations wedded to the task of radical social transformation. Poor standards of bureaucratic performance and political sincerity, insensitiveness of the planning and delivery system constitute a source of inspiration and strength to such activism. The present work is a study of an important voluntary organistion engaged in social awareness, economic uplift and political consciousness among the neglected sections of society. This institution being empathetic to the needs and aspirations of the poor and disadvantaged has been in a position to arrange succour for those in need. It operates in uncared politically dispossessed and economically distressed inhabitants in the remote rural areas and neglected urban centres. Its initiatives represent a moderate non-violent activism based on the critique of power and domination and seeks in the ultimate to generate a countervailing power in the people. It has been our endeavour to study the origin, growth and present status of this organisation. The impact of its strategy for transformation has been accorded close scrutiny. It has also been our attempt to highlight the issues confronting activism to ensure social justice and citizenship privileges. Printed Pages: 95. 112483

Transformation of the Indian Armed Forces 2025: Enhancing India's Defence
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411131; Hardcover; New; New; 
Transformation should lie at the heart of our new approach to defense. The development of transformational capabilities, processes, and force structures should be given strategic focus to meet the principal challenges under our defense strategy. India is already ceased with the necessity of transformation albeit without any documented national security guidelines or operating instructions, which are legislated or have the validation of at least the 'Cabinet Committee on Security'(CCS). In other words the first step would be to create a draft security strategy based on many assumptions, like the foreign policy or the cumulative emerging threat scenario as appreciated by the Defence Intelligence Agency(DIA).This well researched book is a result of the project allotted by the USI under the Field Marshal K. M. Cariappa chair. The book is therefore more as an idea or a theoretical construct, basically to bring in more clarity to the various options available for this great transformation of the Indian military. The author has deliberated upon various landmarks of transformation milestones achieved so far by the three services and given recommendations to further build upon ongoing modernization plan and shift to a higher plane of transformational activities.Printed Pages: 432. 103278
