Blessed with huge mineral resources like Nickel, Vanadium, etc. and abundant mineral deposits of Gold, Diamonds and other gems This bot and decorative stones make Odisha a great industrial hub Coup with hydropower potential and massive thermal power possessions Odisha for a larger part remained underdeveloped and malnourish It is only recently, Odisha is emerging and witnessing steady socio economic changes. In the recent years and decades the state has been able to bounce back on the track of development when all round development has been witnessed in almost all the sectors of her economy, culture, society and polity. The literacy rate in the state is about 73 per cent a figure that has improved tremendously in the last few years. The sex ratio in Odisha is a healthy 976 and it has never been a state that has seen a major fall in this figure the book in this direction is a modest attempt to reflect the growing trends of the state of Odisha on the track of development. This edited volume consisting of several researched chapters to its credit focuses on the emerging facets upon which the state is marching) on and the developmental challenges it has to undergo in this regard Accordingly it has planned out the positives that has led the state on path of progress and the prospect arising out of this and on the other the volume also try to disseminate the challenges it has been facing or will have to face while progressing on the path of development for changing the identity of Odisha that of from underdeveloped and poverty ridden to that of emerging and vibrant state of Odisha.
