India Unbound : From Independence to the Global Information Age
A personal History of India's Economic and Social Transformation since independence. The riveting story of a nation's rise from poverty to prosperity and the clash of ideas that occurred along the way. The old centralised, bureaucratic state, which stifled industrial growth, is on the decline; the lower castes have risen confidently through the ballot box; and the middle class has tripled in the last two decades. This economic and social transformation is one of the major themes of this book.
