The book, Participatory Development: A Case Study, neatly discusses theoretical issues like Democracy for Development, Indian Experience of Planning and its Failures. It has explained how and why the conventional approach to India's development planning has failed to achieve the avowed objectives. It also elaborately discusses the Participatory Way of Rural Development with pointed explanation why participation is needed in the context of modern planning in a democratic set-up like ours. It has thus explained how people, as change agents should be instrumental in bringing about rapid development in rural areas, pointing to the various ways of participation, It also seeks to explain, how people have to manage CPRs in a participatory way for sustainable development. In particular, the book critically examines the validity of several participatory institutions the so-called NGOs working in the State of Manipur in the context of removal of poverty, and also highlights the outcome of the case study undertaken by the author besides suggesting measures for improvement. The book thus concludes with a logistical formulation of rational strategies, and the ways and means for better participation or, more appropriately, enhanced participation of the people at grass-roots level in developmental activities.
