Sense and Solidarity: Jholawala Economics for Everyone
Early in this collection of essays, you will encounter the story of Kusumatand village in Jharkhand, where a landless community called Bhuiyans made meagre wages working as seasonal labourers in neighbouring Bihar. All they could afford to eat was broken rice with the flowers of the mahua tree, or a wild spinach called chakora. In the summer of , three people in the village died of starvation. To investigate the deaths, a team of activists travelled to Kusumatand, which lies in Manatu block in Palamau district. Most of the families did not have ration cards to buy subsidised foodgrains under the public distribution system. It was seen in most of northern and eastern India in the early s, as he vividly and movingly sketches in the essays.
Is India’s social spending too high? The idea would be amusing if it were not so harmful
As its title suggest, it makes a passionate and well-reasoned case for a 'jholawala' — humanitarian — approach to economics. In the context of social development, he looks at various qualitative indicators of child health, elementary education and gender equality and broadens the same to include aspects such as the abolition of caste, the progress of ethics and social norms among others. The book looks to understand these various parameters of social development through the lens of the various welfare schemes that were developed by the Government from the PDS to the mid-day meal schemes to the more recent NREGA. He traces the journey of these schemes from the various efforts made by successive governments in the provision of these schemes, some of which have now become laws, to the important role played by them in ensuring some basic rights to the poor, the problems of corruption plaguing them and efforts being made to either dismantle them or privatise them. From the attempts to dismantle the Public Distribution Scheme to reducing the fund allocation to NREGA or the ridiculous attempt to substitute hot cooked mid-day meals with Parle-G biscuits, he looks at the present attempts to break this welfare state. He points to the total of a mere 1. The fallacy of such an argument has also been brought out by P Sainath who pointed out that between and , the total amount of revenue forgone under corporate income tax is well over Rs.
