A Rejoinder

data of the smaller surveys carried out in 1986-87 and 1988-89. There is indeed a wide choice in the menu on offer by the NSS today: who chooses what? who is inclined to go for blends and adjustments? and in what manner? are open questions at the moment. One, nevertheless, hopes that the room for manipulations and manoeuvres by the adjusters has been sufficiently cramped. Fanciful picture of the stark reality of the human condition in today's India and its misty future would need to be validated against large and live bodies of scientific data on levels of living and the employment/ unemployment status of this vast population. NSS has been doing its job with great regard for the scientific integrity of the data it collects. Although one might fault the NSSO for incompetence and inefficiency, I AM grateful to Bagich Minhas for having favoured me with an advance copy of his critique on my comments on the 'Mystery of a Declining Capital: Output Ratio' (EPW, November 18, 1989). I am more than grateful to him for also having brought out certain facts which arc not in common knowledge of the readers of this journal.
