The study of geography in India is a discipline whose scope and future is frequently questioned.To gain insight into what could be required to build a future, three questions are discussed in this book. First, what imprints from the past does Indian geography carry and how to these shape its contemporary scope and milieu. Second, what is the applied role of geography in the arena of public policy, and third, what could be the impact of information technology in shaping the future of Indian geography.Within this context the genesis of Indian geography, the current scope and the occupational security of practising geographers is explored. These essays lead us to reflect on the possibility of a future with a difference for Indian geography.
