    Target 3 Billion: Innovative Solutions Towards Sustainable Development explores the authors’ vision for the rural regions of the country, and the strategies by which the poorer regions can be integrated into the mainstream in terms of social, economical, and technological progress.

    Summary Of The Book

    Target 3 Billion: Innovative Solutions Towards Sustainable Development talks about the many difficulties that rural societies face. These places are often ignored in terms of infrastructure like roads, transportation, and electricity.

    The authors then talk about how a group of passionate people, or even an individual, can bring change in a short period of time. They discuss how Fabio Luiz de Oliveira Rosa managed to transform a rural region in Brazil by giving the people access to good water supply and electricity.

    The authors also describe how a community owned region of 400 acres, the Magarpatta village, was transformed into a modern township with an IT Park. They also introduce the Bhadariya village, which was a wasteland in the middle of the Thar Desert. Bhadariya posed additional challenges, as most of the villagers were addicted to alcohol, tobacco, and other substances.

    The head of the Bhadariya Ashram, Baba Bhadariya Maharaj, initiated a cooperative program that first began as a campaign for de-addiction of the local people. Once the people were back to their senses, they improved their environment by digging tube wells, planting trees, and practicing methods for water conservation and irrigation. Soon the place was transformed, and became rich with cultivable lands and herds of cattle.

    Target 3 Billion: Innovative Solutions Towards Sustainable Development also concentrates on PURA (Providing Urban amenities in Rural Areas), a programme initiated by Kalam when he was the President of India. The book discusses how this model could significantly help improve the infrastructure of villages, and provide them with fundamental necessities like water and electricity, as well as other requirements such as roads and transportation.

    The role of technology in development is also explored, as they talk about how Information Technology could be used to provide access to better education and other knowledge in remote areas. This book makes it apparent that the integration of rural economies is essential for achieving sustainable development of the country as a whole.

    Target 3 Billion

    Dr. Abdul Kalam’s idea about PURA (Provision of Urban Amenities in Rural Areas) to eradicate poverty is an innovative and sustainable one. It requires collective response from different stakeholders from village farmer to Corporate. Joined hands spare success. If we all (irrespective of age group and profession) plant this idea into the field definitely poverty will flee from INDIA. Jai Hind. I Love India
