The Hindu Family and the Emergence of Modern India planning the family in india
Between 1955 and 1956 the Government of India passed four Hindu Law Acts to reform and codify Hindu family law. Scholars have understood these acts as a response to growing concern about women's rights but, in a powerful re-reading of their history, this book traces the origins of the Hindu law reform project to changes in the political-economy of late colonial rule. The Hindu Family and the Emergence of Modern India considers how questions regarding family structure, property rights and gender relations contributed to the development of representative politics, and how, in solving these questions, India's secular and state power structures were consequently drawn into a complex and unique relationship with Hindu law. In this comprehensive and illuminating resource for scholars and students, Newbigin demonstrates the significance of gender and economy to the history of twentieth-century democratic government, as it emerged in India and beyond.

Craig Holland The Art of Business Succession. Who will fill your shoes? planning the family in india
As the majority of baby boomers retire over the next five to 10 years, succession planning will be vital for the long-term survival of many businesses. Australia is about to see a huge transfer of wealth from the baby boomer generation, yet many businesses, particularly family-owned businesses, struggle to ensure a smooth transition of business management and ownership. Myriad studies show that fewer than 30 per cent of private businesses have an achievable succession plan in place. Most business owners do nothing or they choose to focus on one area in the succession planning process such as tax, while ignoring many of the other key issues that need to be dealt with. For companies that are family owned, the ramifications may be even more sweeping. The personal issues they face, compounding other day-to-day business concerns, range from planning for income taxes to maintaining interpersonal relationships with family members. Succession planning is more complex now as many different business, financial and personal issues come into play. A good succession plan will look at a range of issues such as people and talent, family dynamics, corporate structure, estate planning, insurance and share transfer to name just a few. The Art of Business Succession Planning is for anyone in business who wants to have a change, retire or simply sell their business. It is designed to guide business owners through a comprehensive and strategic approach to the business succession process. The opportunities and benefits are great when succession planning is undertaken in a disciplined way.

Health and Nutritional Status of the Hmars of Aizawl District, Mizoram planning the family in india
In this study of the Health and Nutritional Status of the Hmars of Aizawl District, Mizoram, the findings seem to have certain implications for the application of the demographic transition theory. It is well known that the second stage of demographic transition theory predicts that improvement in standard of living and health facilities results in population growth due to high fertility and low mortality. The poor performance of family planning welfare programmes and/or low practice of family planning methods of contraception enhances the fertility rate or population growth. Fertility rate is still high in the population, thereby suggesting a need for greater political will to implement family planning programmes. The co-existence of under- and over-nutrition (as indicated by BMI) was also seen in the Hmar population. Double burden of under- and over-nutrition exerts considerable impact on the economy and health system in many developing countries. The increasing urbanization, changes in standards of living, dietary patterns and occupational work patterns are the key factors to risks of the epidemic of obesity and associated morbidity and mortality.
