Book Summary

Since The Early 1990S, India Has Witnessed Great Social, Political And Cultural Change. As The World's Largest Democracy, Its Most Diverse Nation And One Of Its Fastest Growing Economies, India Is Now, Sixty Years After Independence, Universally Regarded As An Emerging Superpower. In This Sweeping And Comprehensive Book, One Of The Country's Finest And Most Dynamic Minds Examines The Central Ideas That Have Shaped Modern India, And Offers An Original Perspective On Our Past, Present And Future.
Infosys Co-Founder Nandan Nilekani, Who Has Been A Key Player In India's Growth Story, Points Out That The Country's Future Rests On More Than Simply Economic Growth; It Also Depends On Reform And Innovation In All Sectors Of Public Life. Looking Closely At India's Recent History, He Examines The Ideas And Attitudes That Evolved With The Times And Contributed To The Country's Progress, As Well As Those That Kept It Shackled To Old, Unproductive And Fundamentally Undemocratic Ways. He Discusses How India's Early Socialist Policies, Despite Good Intentions And Astonishing Idealism, Stifled Growth And Weakened Democracy; How, Contrary To Received Wisdom, The Country's Large And Overwhelmingly Young Population Has Now Become Its Greatest Strength; How Information Technology Is Revolutionizing Not Just Business But Also Governance In The Everyday Life Of A Vast Majority Of Indians; And How Rapid Urbanization Is Transforming Both Society And Politics.

Nilekani Also Gets To The Heart Of Charged Debates About Caste Politics, Labour Reform, Infrastructure, Higher Education, The English Language In India And The Role Of The State In A Globalized World Where The Wealth Of Big Corporations Exceeds That Of Some Nations. And As He Does This, He Asks The Key Questions Of The Future: How Will India As A Global Power Avoid The Mistakes Of Earlier Development Models? Will Further Access To The Open Market Continue To Stim
