Summary Children constitute a sizeable proportion of India's population. Despite progress along many fronts, Indian children continue to face many deprivations. Statistical indicators reveal that differences in wellbeing among children in India are narrowing, yet almost 43 per cent of children below 5 years were undernourished in 2005-6, and, even today, over a million babies die before their first birthday. Through the entry point of new opportunities available to children in India and old challenges still faced by them, this book raises several key questions that are central to policy debates in India
