Book is basically divided into eleven chapters. First is on agriculture inputs. In that different aspects in field of farming and agriculture is explained and definitely factors affecting it is very well shown with data, table and charts also. Following chapters are based on Water availability, on energy access, on agricultural marketing, on non-farm income, on handicrafts, on rural labor, on rural education, on rural healthcare, on rural credit and a way forward.
As we know from ancient times, majority people are dependent on agriculture and handicrafts business. And working in rural areas, I can understand that completely. And being daughter of a farmer, I know that all aspects shown in the book are true like water, electricity availability, impacts of different weather etc. I am glad that I came across and read this book, so that I can help the people of rural area with this knowledge and I can definitely recommend them.
I liked the section which is based on rural healthcare the most, because working in that same sector, I can relate majority of the circumstances. The information provided is going to be very useful. So I loved that section.
➡️Overall it’s a good one.
➡️To write such type of non fiction book, the author has to study hard the subjects and the data and information has to be perfect, and it is almost perfect. So I must say author has thorough with his knowledge of rural India.
➡️Good use of vocabulary and language.
➡️Numerical data has been represented with table and charts so it’s easy to understand.
➡️ Residing in India, where majority population still lives in rural area, we must read these concepts.
➡️Overall I can say worth reading.
