Human Development in the Indian Context

Margaret Khalakdina,

Human Development in the Indian Context
Information on human development in India has depended heavily on Western-oriented
concepts. However, Indian academia over the past three decades has emphasised
and pursued indigenous culture-specific conceptualizations. This Volume links
together the general concepts in psychology, sociology and, to some extent, anthropology,
to focus on the culture-specific development of the Indian and to present a holistic

Human Development in the Indian Context, Vol 1 contains essential information
for an understanding of the nature of development of the Indian psyche and ethos.
In this context, the author examines the significant aspects of development.
In doing so, she presents a paradigm of an eclectic point of view, analysing
basic concepts, sources and knowledge of human development in the Indian situation.
She also discusses the critical skills required of the individual, the identity
of the Indian and his adaptive resilience to the heterogeneity of his culture.
This volume provides information to new readers and is a reference book targeted
at university students, developmental institutions and to some extent, the students
of comparative Asian studies. Volume 2, which follows, helps further understand
the Indian in his cultural and ecological situation.
