A fascinating introduction to the Indian debate how to prepare for the inevitable billion plus without neglecting the control of fecundity.

A very important piece of work with a crucial central message - that in India, population and development must be explored and exploited in a holistic manner. The book is a systematic collection of essays that point inexorably towards the need to develop the tools that science and technology might provide for resolving the population problem in ways that are at once effective and caring.

For several decades we accepted the derived wisdom without questioning it. For the first time, a scientist has had the audacity and courage to challenge that wisdom and provide for some earthly answers. The book is rich in data and information.

The volume also focuses on the shortcoming of the past policies and development of infrastructure and of services necessary for a billion plus Indians in the next century . . The emphasis is on a holistic approach to meet the challenge, instead of the present fragmented policy framework.
