Reshaping India

About the Series

Marking a radical departure from the ‘graded inequalities’ of the past, India’s Constitution guaranteed equitable access to the prosperity of the nation to all Indians. Building on the 1931 Fundamental Rights and Economic Policy resolution, the 1936 National Planning Committee and the Constituent Assembly debates, India’s Constitution guarantees fullness of life for all. This has also remained the underlying principle of India’s development paradigm. However, there is little structured planning on how the nation’s constitutional promise can be realised. The few interventions that are made are particularist and exclude the vast majority of stakeholders — whether they are academics, activists, professionals, etc. Addressing the lacuna, Samruddha Bharat Foundation’s Routledge Reshaping India series aims to curate high-level monographs and volumes that further India’s constitutional promise by (a) methodically re-thinking current social, political and economic paradigms; (b) proposing disruptive and innovative ideas to address structural problems facing the nation; (c) forging a blueprint for India’s future trajectory, so that it touches new heights by 2047 (when the country turns 100); and (d) creating a unique praxis between theory and practice.
