Political Economy of the Nehru Era

DN The Nehru era, in the author's view, began with Telangana and ended with Naxalbari. This paper attempts a political-economic analysis of this period. It focuses on the Mahalanobis model in theory and practice, the perpetuation of semi-feudalism in Indian agriculture despite the abolition of zamindari, the armaments drive which led to a setback to the industrialisation process, the dependence (out of necessity rather than choice) on western and Soviet imperialism, the major political and economic crises, and India's expansionist tendencies in south Asia.
