Paying particular attention to the construction of gender, she shows that ideas of individualism rhetorically and theoretically bind colonials, feminists, nationalists, and neocolonia...

The Reproductive and Child Health Policy (RCH) in India has been in force since 1995. Coming after the Cairo Conference, 1994, the RCH was expected to usher in a 'paradigm shift' in India's population policy. From a family welfare programme that has historically been top-down, even coercive, the Indian government projected the RCH to be a participatory, women-centred reproductive health service. Ironically, the policy was devised barely four years after the start of the Indian State's tryst with market development, and was launched into a political environment in ideological transition.

This important book is a dialogue on the theme of partition and its far-reaching sociological implications for communal patterns, generational dynamics and individual lives.

Developing the concept of ‘partition-societies’, the volume succinctly explains the social, economic and political implications of such divisions. The lens of partition is used to focus on how societies that have experienced ... View more info

This interdisciplinary book brings together different dimensions of women's livelihood, citizenship and development. It unravels the patriarchal structure of natural resource policy in India and argues that the context of citizenship needs to be extended to include the right to recognition of ways of living and livelihood, so that women take their legitimate space as productive human beings, entitled to dignity as a political right, and not merely to protection and welfare. The chapters in the book reflect the interrelatedness of several complex themes: the need to recognize resource rights t... View more info

This book examines the participation of the women of North India in the Indian nationalist movement, portraying how women's lives were significantly affected and reshaped by their involvement in the freedom struggle. The author discusses how women's participation in this mass movement was encouraged by `the domestication of the public sphere' so that they could enter the public domain without being alienated from their domestic lives. She argues that the raised consciousness engendered by women's participation in the freedom struggle paved the way for a gradually evolving idea of women's eman... View more info
