A welfare State is committed to the social, economic and intellectual betterment of its citizens. It sets up institutions, establishes organisations and facilitates all other endeavours in this direction. The entire range of social welfare becomes a prime responsibility of the State and its various establishments. The policies and plans meant for the benefit of all classes of citizens extend over social welfare, social defence, social reconstruction, social rehabilitation, social insurance and several other areas. The very complex character of the nature and dimensions of the processes, procedures and authorities necessary for the effective implementation of projects and schemes makes it a herculean task for the government as well as the implementing authority.

As a visiting scholar of The Cairns Institute, Professor Ilango Ponnuswami from Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, India had the opportunity in 2012 to work and collaborate with staff of Cairns Institute as well as social work academics of James Cook University(JCU) in North Queensland, Australia. These collaborations led to recognition that many of the challenges and dilemmas of scientific writing and publicationwere relevant to both the Indian and Australian contexts and that a meaningful cross-national collaboration would potentially enrich the learning experiences of students and staff in both locations. Subsequently the editors of this book, Professor Ponnuswami, and Dr Francis and Dr Harris from JCU, conducted a three day residential Scientific Writing and Publication Workshop (in January 2013), for social work faculty members and research scholars, at the Karl Kubel Institute of Development Education (KKID) in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. This book is a tangible outcome of this international, academic collaboration and, most importantly, is the result of the KKID participants’ scientific writing endeavors begunat the 2013 workshop in Coimbatore.

As a direct outcome of undertaking the University Grants Commission-sponsored curriculum development project (1986 to 1990) and conducting refresher courses for teachers (since 1989) for social work education, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) felt a need for a continued process for curriculum planning and teacher development for social work education. A Social Work Education and Practice Cell was, therefore, set up at the Institute in January 1992. The purpose of the Cell is training, research and resource development on methodology of social work education, through the following functions, at the local, national and international levels:

Humanity's need for resilience has rarely been greater. We live in a troubled world, in troubled times. As we write, there are 35 major military conflicts and wars raging on this planet. Thirteen per cent of the world's population is unable to find enough food. And global warming is threatening our very survival as a species.

Historically, all the major religions of the world and their ethics have influenced and guided the traditional social services. But in the later half of the 19th century there was a growing realization to make the services more scientific, secular and humanitarian. As a result all traditional professions had to shift their domains from the cradle of religions to modernity. That transformation has led them to develop a more organized and systematic body of knowledge; specialized training system, professional association and professional ethics.

The present book is prepared in view of the dearth of the literature available on methods of Social Work, particularly two of the methods, i.e. Community Organization and Social Action which constitute integral part of Social Work Education. While there is limited literature available from the Western authors, the indigenous literature by the Indian authors in the context of the socio-economic conditions obtaining in our country is found lacking.

I always have a sincere and special concern for children and feel quite sorry at the sad state of affairs.
The true health of the Nation depends on the physical and mental health of its own children and the care and concern it has towards its children. Young Children are misused as child labour at a tender age denying them the basic right of education thereby adversely affecting their lives.

1.1. The Problem: Discrimination is inherent in society in all walks of life in all human spheres because society has strata. Society is existed on the basis of role, identity, personal merit; support etc. It reveals about the identified problem of human beings against disabled in the society as a whole. It is common knowledge that the Persons with Disabilities (PWD) have been badly neglected and discriminated all over the world. They do have outstanding abilities which are hardly recognized and excluded from the mainstream of the Society. Given appropriate education, training and opportunity, they can also contribute to the society and economic development of the country.

Social exclusion not only generates tension, violence and dis- ruption but also perpetuates inequality and deprivation in So- ciety. In India, certain communities such as Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and religious minorities experience systemic exclusion in the matter of taking advantages of development. So- cial exclusion is a complex and multidimensional concept having social, cultural, political and economic ramifications. The conse- quences of macroeconomic policies such as poverty, unemploy- ment and involuntary migration exclude the victims from economic, cultural, and political activities.

At this stage of my life (82 years), I had thought, I would not take any trouble, make any effort regarding my published work – collection of papers, books and subsequently published articles in academic journals. But certain events that took place about fifteen months back, prompted (tempted?) me to reconsider my earlier decision. The result is a selection of my published writings, mainly from two books and addition of four chapters specially written for this selection, and arranging them in one volume, grouped under a common theme. The entire part one of my book, Social Welfare-An Evolutionary And Developmental Perspective, Macmillan-India (1981) is included here as part one. In the second part, I have included selected writings from my other book – Social Welfare, Health and Family Planning in India, Marwah Publications, Delhi, 1979. I have also added four chapters especially written for this book recently (March, April 2012) namely, Helping Process in the Bhagavadgita, Bhakti: Concept, Ideology And Spread, Professionalisation of Social Work 1975-2012 and Developmental Social Welfare. The notes and reference have been retained, with appropriate deletions and renumbering, following the chapter numbers in this book.

Social work education in South India was heralded with the founding of the Madras School of Social Work (MSSW) in 1952. It was the fruition of the vision and determination of the late Mary Clubwala Jadhav, a colossus among social workers in the country. She founded MSSW under the joint auspices of the Guild of Service (Central), one of the oldest voluntary welfare organizations in India, and the Madras branch of the Indian Conference of Social Work (renamed the Indian Council of Social Welfare). Mary Clubwala Jadhav devoted her whole life for serving children, women, differently abled, war veterans, urban poor and other needy sections till she breathed her last at the age of 67. Ill - health and personal tragedies never deterred her from reaching out to the people in distress. She was an epitome of courtesy and social grace.
