Abstract: Energy is one of the prime requirements for balanced growth of economy. Dr Baldev Raj (and T S Gopi Rethinaraj and Hippu Salk Kristle Nathan) have given a very informative and analytical round-up of the social dimension of our energy scenario. Dr Baldev Raj (and co-authors) who have a wide national and international experience in the energy sector (particularly nuclear) give a macro view of the energy scenario in India, its power generation mix, as also the energy demand in different sectors. The related social issues like land acquisition, population displacement and resettlement, including energy poverty and inequalities have been discussed. The impact of energy induced emissions and health issues covering various forms of energy have also been brought out. The authors reiterate that with increasing availability of clean energy and transformation technologies, there would be a beneficial impact on health and life spans which could beneficially change our energy availability scenario
