Development Dialogue: Thoughts on Socio Economic Issues by Manu N Kulkarni

This collection of articles presents short reflections on various dimensions of development. Development is a broad concept and can mean anything to anybody. But in this book, it is all about development of human beings, of the land and the mother earth and all about how we interact with each other and with physical environment, how the technologies affect humans from time to time and how development enhances human happiness or misery in different ways. It also reflects how the old are being treated and how the growing 50+ age group people who are neither young nor old are caught up between the shrinking job markets and the emerging talent shortage for new types of jobs. It covers varied topics such as the changing demography, yoga and spiritual living, travel, leadership, good governance, and environment.
