Compare two children – one born in north India, the other in the  south.The child from south India is far less likely to die in the first  year of her life or lose her mother during childbirth. She will also  receive better nutrition, go to school and stay in school longer; she is  more likely to attend college and secure employment that pays her  more.This child will also go on to have fewer children, who in turn will  be healthier and more educated than her. In a nutshell, the average  child born in south India will live a healthier, wealthier, more secure  life than one born in north India. Why is south India doing so much  better than the north? And what does that mean? In this superbly argued  book, data scientist Nilakantan RS shows us how and why the southern  states are outperforming the rest of the country and its consequences in  an increasingly centralized India. He reveals how south India deals  with a particularly tough set of issues – its triumphs in areas of  health, education and economic growth are met with a policy regime that  penalizes it; its success in population control will be met with a  possible loss of political representation. How will the region manage  such an assault? Hard-hitting, troubling and full of fascinating data  points, South vs North is an essential book about one of the biggest  challenges that India faces today.
