Business and Community is a historical narrative which also highlights emerging critical issues and the achievements as well as deficits of Indian CSR. Its objectives are threefold:

- To enhance public knowledge, understanding and appreciation of what Indian business has contributed to society

- To enthuse the business community as a whole, especially the younger generation, by highlighting exemplary individualsmpanies in the history of Indian CSR

- To identify the factors which inhibit or encourage CSR so as to enable business and government to take appropriate action

Written in a simple, non-jargonistic language, it is easy to understand without being simplistic. Its extensive bibliography will be useful for further research.
