A New Economics Awaits Us

This article attempts to look into the concept of othering in the context of urban development. The major motivation for the initiation of this article came after reading Dipankar Gupta’s book review titled “A New Sociology Awaits Us” (EPW, 26 December 2020), which mainly concentrated on urban affairs.

Dipankar Gupta’s book review titled “A New Sociology Awaits Us” (EPW, 26 December 2020) created multiple entry points for re-
examining the idea of “urban space” or “urban affair.” The title of the current article is framed out of the motivation
majorly drawn from Gupta’s review. Therefore, this particular article can also be considered as a commentary of a review that looks forward to motivate and bring about more entry points into the academic discourse on the theme of urban affairs. Hence, naturally, this article is not an attempt to take any one article in particular, rather it is an attempt to motivate and stimulate a larger imaginary that seems to have taken a convenient detour towards what can be called a process of “othering.”
