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.
