The event marks the launch of a book that gives insights into the fundamental question of development economics, How Lives Change.
This new book uses a unique data set consisting of seven full (100%) surveys of one Indian village, one for every decade since Independence. The panel, consists of some of the leading scholars and practitioners of economic development of our times. The book reflects on the past, present and future, both of India and of development economics, seen through the experience of Palanpur in the years since Independence.
