Child rights in India 1947-79by: Dr. Samiparna Rakshit
The book focuses on the official attitude of the post-colonial nation-state in India towards the child during the period from 1947 to 1979 and engages with the concept of the child in relation to state policy. With this focus on state policy, the book explores how important was the question of the child in the Indian nation-state’s governance and agenda of development. Finally, the book attempts to find out whether the attitude of the dominant class in India, as reflected in official policies, effectively recognised the child as a rights bearing person.
