Book Name: Who Me, Poor?: How India’s Youth are Living in Urban Poverty to Make it Big
By Gayatri Jayaraman
The characteristics and reasons for urban poverty are manifold and seem to repeat across class structures: migration, real estate costs, culture shock, and unrealistic expectations of city life, corporate cultures that perpetuate stereotypical workforces, a lack of financial education, a glamourised entrepreneurial culture that focuses on icons of spending instead of struggle and economically and politically, the rise of the cashless credit economy and the demise of the thrift economy and its conservative icons.
The book “Who Me, Poor?: How India’s Youth are Living in Urban Poverty to Make it Big ” will use the case studies of young Indians, typically in their first or second jobs, migrants to major Indian metros, living in these conditions. The reasons for the poverty they experience are varied and influenced by the industries they work for, their family backgrounds, other financial obligations, peer groups and social stratas.
There are so far, no studies available for this in India and is a rising phenomenon in the USwhere it has been called ‘poverty with no name’. Gayatri’s short piece on the Urban Poor crossed 1.1 million views on Buzzfeed – the highest number for any Indian feature article to date.
