Abstract

This article seeks to question the process of industrialization and its negative impact on the economic and social development of the people in Orissa, India. While preparing the balance sheet of industrialization, it takes into account the resistance movement as well. A comparative analysis of this transitional process shows how lives and human conditions of the population are affected. It explodes the myth that industrialization would bring development and modernization for the state of Orissa.
