Short Description
About the book, The entire research study on cultural economics especially emphasises on Temple Culture, with reference to a case study of Tarakeswar. It is terminated by giving the conclusion that the socio-economic development of Tarakeswar block as well as municipality is fully dependent upon the Religious Culture of the temple of 'Baba Taraknath'. The municipal authority, the railway authority and various local hospitality groups at Tarakeswar are socio-economically dependent on the Temple Culture to a great extent. We have summarised the main results in each chapter on the relevant aspects of Temple Culture.about the author, Atanu Sengupta: M. Sc., Ph.D. from Indian Statistical Institute, India.
