Amartya Sen’s ‘An Uncertain Glory' to be launched in Hindi

Jul 05, 2018

The book not only talks about GDP of India but also raises questions about gender issues in the country.

New Delhi: Rajkamal Prakashan Samuh is organizing a book launch at Sahitya Akademi Hall which is situated in Feroazshah road on 7th July 2018.The publishing house is launching a Hindi translation of Amartya Sen’s book, ‘'An Uncertain Glory' India and Its Contradiction’, originally written in English .After the conclusion of the launch, Amartya Sen and co-author Jean Dreze will be in conversation with journalist and author Ravish Kumar and Saba Naqvi.

The book not only talks about GDP of India but also raises questions about gender issues in the country. The book argues about economic growth being meaningless without redistribution of its benefits to the underprivileged. An overreaching theme of this book is the necessity for the lives, needs, rights and demands of underprivileged people to command greater attention in public discussion and policy making, and in democratic politics.

Indian democracy is seriously compromised by the extent and form of social inequality prevalent in the country, particularly since democracy stands not just for electoral politics and civil liberties but also for equal distribution of power. While some aspects of social inequality in India have diminished in the recent past, new imbalances have developed, including heightened economic inequality and the growth of corporate power. Nevertheless, it would be a mistake to think that privileged interests are bound to override and overwhelm all attempts at sharing power more equitably.
