Establishment of an equitable social order has been the prime human concern for ages. The central focus in this regard has been on the production, distribution and utilisation of wealth. The scenario of the fortunate few and the miserable many is also an inheritance from the earlier centuries. Social aberrations in the form of enormous inadequacies in educational and healthcare facilities have been long vying for attention. The aftermath of Industrial Revolution, marked by the phenomenal growth in number and size of the industrial enterprises at national and multinational levels, has brought to the fore the contentious issues of conservation and preservation of natural resources, environmental degradation, global warming, human relations, etc. These imbalances have now assumed disconcerting proportions, despite continuous and multiple initiatives and efforts by various agencies to tackle them.
