Here is a link to an article written by Prof. Prabhat Patnaik. He was the vice-Chairman of Kerala Planning commission during the Left Front rule. He emphasises on the need of a welfare state and at the same time how to keep the growth rate uninterrupted. Most of the people are not ready to discuss the facts as facts and stagger around superfluously on emotional topics, masalas, etc..
I have posted it here not to convince anyone. But to record this so that I won’t miss it out. I will try to update something related to the Kerala Strategy in this post in the coming days..
