Description

Nearly half of the world’s population lives on less than $2.5 a day, and of those, 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty - under $1.25 a day. Government policy measures, the work of NGOs, and development programs have been effective in some areas of improving welfare; however, poverty remains to hold billions in its grips. Why?
This personal narrative shares a teenager’s quest to find answers as to why poverty is so difficult to escape. It draws on his experience in a rural Indian village, where he conducted extensive research. Through his interactions with countless indigent individuals, ensuring sustenance on low finances, and observing his surroundings, Yohaan’s perspective of poverty was transformed. Hundred Rupees a Day shares insightful stories which shed light on the hardships and lifestyles of the poorest members of Indian society. Stemming from empirical research and experiential learning are also policy measures ideated based on the true circumstances and requirements of impoverished Indians.
Hundred Rupees A Day is, more than anything, an invitation to explore poverty; one which offers, through personal accounts, insights for anyone seeking to confront the most pressing issues facing humanity.

About the Author

Yohaan Dalal is a 12th grader at Indus International School, Bangalore. He enjoys exploring the fields of sociology, economics, global affairs, and philosophy, among others. In particular, he has a keen interest in understanding poverty through interdisciplinary learning which merges his favorite fields through unique approaches. Along with academics, Yohaan is passionate about Drama, Basketball, and Public Speaking.
Although a 17-year old, Yohaan strongly believes in his ambitious mission: to understand and ultimately alleviate poverty in rural India. He’s convinced that without a thorough understanding of poverty, significant poverty reduction is impossible. While he initially turned to existing literature to comprehend poverty, he was unsatisfied with his research as he found it to be too generic, boiling everything down to formulaic approaches. Seeking a fresh and informed perspective on poverty, he set off on a journey that would change his life.
