Ram Krishna Sen
There are a number of social problem that the modern society of our faces of it slums are an important one. Slums are the result of uneven development and capitalism. Slums promote family disorganization and increase certain kinds of crime. The main aim of this paper is to bring into light even in today’s world where man has made path breaking advancement in all fields be it science & technology or be it combating fatal disease, there is still a section of the society who is still aloof from the mainstream of the development. The slum dwellers are the deprived section of the society living at the subsistent level whose only aim in life is to earn there daily bread and with the education of their offspring taking a backseat in their life. The slum should not be neglected by entitling them as “refugees”, “illegal encroacher” but the problem should be addressed with the same seriousness with which the other social problems are dealt with. Steps should be taken both by the government as well as by the private agencies to improve their condition. Thus slum should be taken less as social evil and more as a problem requiring the immediate of people like us.
