Chapter 6 in Rafiq Dossani (ed.), Telecommunications reform in India. Quorum Books, Westport, Connecticut. 258 pages., Author describes a proposal wherein the state should build 5,000 communications centers or "work centers" and link these to the rail and fiber infrastructures. Every citizen can access a telephone, the Internet, health care and education. "People stay within the traditional semirural or rural infrastructure, within their 'circle,' rather than moving away from their families to the overcrowded cities."
