Abstract

“What do you suggest, sir?” Alice asked.

“That depends on what you want,” the caterpillar said wisely.

Lewis Carroll did not raise Alice in a wonderland of public action, as we know it in terms of a dialectics between organized public demand and a willing state supply. The present study is on the marvels of such a wonderland, on the significance of public action, on an enabling environment of ‘as if’ rights that underlie the dialectics of public action, of development. The study is also on the other extreme of a sluggish land, on a vacuum of public action, thus on underdevelopment.

This Report is made up of such a comparative study between Kerala and Orissa in India. The study was made possible by a research grant from the Ford Foundation, New Delhi, sanctioned in mid-January 2004.
