The author uses textual analysis and interviews to argue that after Independence the State has abdicated its responsibility towards children. It criticizes the State's relationship as it has moved from an initial reluctance and unwillingness to the current desire to retreat from long-term guardianship and support to children. It comprehensively examines child rights in relation to the market-oriented approach adopted by the state in recent times while critically evaluating the policy-making initiatives taken by the State in the changing social and economic scenario.
