Abstract: Our agrarian economy is in terrible crises and so is our rural life world. The farm sector is in crises and there are important challenges for the non-farm sectors as well. There are also challenges of rural-urban transformations in contemporary India in the context of depressed economies in the countryside and urban migration. The lecture discusses these issues as well as challenges of rural development and globalization and explores Gandhian pathways towards alternatives.
