Quotidian Urban Challenges Development, Environment and Health by Ravi S. Singh

India, like other Asian countries, is urbanizing quite rapidly. And, both persisting and emerging urban problems are acquiring unprecedented form and dimensions. The available academic works are generally over-burdened with theoretical issues and in many cases with abstraction. This book therefore seeks to bring together studies on some contemporary everyday-quotidian-urban problems an average Indian urban dweller confronts, like (ever-increasing) crowding, housing (shortage), garbage (mishandling), (increasing) pollution, (deteriorating) health and above all the need for effective and efficient governance. It is quite a worthwhile systematic treatment to such issues in a single volume that specifically provides a peep into all of them together. Contents Foreword Professor (Dr.) V.C.
