"Imagine...A Better World" is intended as a critique of global society and the development processes we have adopted so far. Though there is no denying that there have been remarkable advances made in a variety of areas, it aims to draw our attention to some of the adverse after-effects. Furthermore, there are graphic descriptions of how large sections of our society have been left untouched by whatever development has taken place. Therefore, there is an ‘unfinished agenda’. It raises a series of haunting questions. How to reach the fruits of development to the rural poor, the underprivileged, the physically handicapped, the female child? How to ensure that what passes for development is not achieved at the expense of nature and the environment? How to organise popular movements for the restoration of values and genuine peace in society?
