Prof. Dr. Biswajit Das and Dr.Basanta Sahani have co-authored a book titled ‘Journey of Slum-Dwellers: A Socio-Eco-Environmental Crusade‘ published by LAP-LAMBERT, Germany. This book highlights the profile and woes of slum-dwellers at Bhubaneswar in the capital city of Odisha.

The book narrates the ill-effect of the emerging economy on the life of slum families, and addresses the problems with some probabilistic solutions. This work  candidly depicts the reasons of migration taking place from the sub-urban Odisha; settling at Bhubaneswar to earn their livelihood. The book also provides solutions to the burgeoning issues and challenges; essentially emanating from the deluge of population and urbanisation.
