68 years after independence, India is still a long way from achieving one of its Fundamental Rights as enshrined in the constitution – Right to Equality. Civil society organisations have a crucial role to play in this context. They are the organic link between the governing state and the people. They have consistently, over the years, spoken and worked in favour of the marginalised and the vulnerable. This activism, however, can only be deepened by an in-depth understanding and analysis of the persistent gaps in the distribution of income and wealth as well as the socio-economic inequalities. This manual aims to facilitate the activism by providing an illustrative understanding of these inequalities in our country.
