    ABSTRACT: The article is an attempt at a comprehensive understanding of regional as well as disaggregated (district-wise) patterns of poverty prevailing among social and religious groups in Uttar Pradesh by using unit level records of the 61st (2004-05) and 68th (2011-12) rounds of NSSO's Consumption Expenditure Survey. It identifies the critical regions in UP, where poverty among social and religious groups is unfairly distributed. Estimates reveal that though poverty in the state reduced by 11.50% points between 2004-05 and 2011-12, it remained quite high among Scheduled Castes (40.87%) and Muslims (34.88%), particularly in the central, southern and eastern regions of the state. The study also attempts to gauge the causes for the unequal distribution of poverty among social and religious groups in the state and goes on to suggest that region specific and group specific development programmes may be more effective in alleviating poverty among social and religious groups. - See more at: http://www.epw.in/journal/2015/52/special-articles/poverty-across-social-and-religious-groups-uttar-pradesh.html#sthash.fdBBqXus.dpuf

    ABSTRACT: This paper deliberates upon the physical body of labourers as well as their health and well-being in order to reveal the contradictions in the state's discourse of national development and defence. Narratives of and interviews with the imported casual paid labour working on the Manali-Leh highway as for the Border Roads Organisation show us that illness, death and injury accompany the dangerous work of building roads in the high altitude of the upper Himalayas. The "unskilled" or "disposable" labourer is never able to accumulate additional utility or human capital even after many years of experience. His only capital--the body--is treated as a disposable and inanimate piece of machinery that loses its value in order to generate value for the nation. - See more at: http://www.epw.in/journal/2015/51/special-articles/narratives-health-and-well-being.html#sthash.3RWG45Qb.dpuf
