This book is a precise thoughts of Gurcharan Das former CEO of PG Hope a business consultantventure capitalist about India's economy and state of affairsHe points out that India’s economy has been on the passive front until the information technology plunged India to forefrontCompanies like Infosys and schools like NIT have a big hand in shaping up this image of better India thus adding to 92% growth every year Now it seems as though India has a promising potential to become of the major economic powerIts sad that it took than fifty years after Independence for the country to see the dawn of economic progressWorse India never saw the Industrial Revolution neither the “Asian miracle that swept countries like Japan Korea Singapore and TaiwanWhen compared to those countries India’s state cuts a sorry figure He feels that government is actually hampering the growth of the country in the name of bringing about development and new policies that never see the light of executionHe has given a personal account in chapter one where his grandfather feels had India been under British raj there would have been progress to the countryBut I still doubt that though India’s politician battled against poverty that instead of rubbing away poverty from the face of India i ended up adding to the statistics by poor policies and legislature standIts adverse effect is still born by all citizens even todayHe says that Indian are skeptic about the reforms on a global front for the basis irregular cultural views and in turn has resulted in depleted state of affairs in the rural part of the country which forms the larger junk of IndiaIn spite of all the technological progress brininging about 388 billion in 1996 as compared to 912 billion in 2006 bringing about larger fiscal benefits the literacy rate is still 61% as per 2006 reports is still a major concernThe social status is not evenly distributed resulting in a disarrayed social hiatusThough British invested upon good railway system and laying the base for democracy things haven’t much changed till nowEconomic reforms didn’t come until 1990’s but unfortunately they came from not that good reformers hence failed to be appreciated by the public International monetary fund forced India to bring about changes that is explained well in the book Das says that India's future is all about knowledge this will help India y to move ahead many foldsHe says as Information technology and the private companies is not bound by politics is the reason why that’s making the progress that we see todayHe gives practical and logical strategies for the developmentHe highlights the importance to build on one’s strength rather focusing upon correcting the weakness watch the market and there by strategise rather than moving as per one’s will Its better go for a focused way rather diversing with many goals one should compare with international standard rather fighting with local competitionhe gives his views through every aspect with diligence and convictionDas backs PV Narasimha Rao's policy to open up Indian market for foreign investment and tradeBy the end of world war I predictably India had everything to move forward with Industrial revelution unfortunately that never happened he reasons out that Agriculture and the industry never went hand in hand which let out the otherInspite of the green revelution without the back up from industry failed misery in the path of development Even now because of poor policies its difficult for the country progress inspite of high investmentsBy denying foreign investments India has deprived itself from the benefits cutting edge technolgy and world class competitionIndian generations were betrayed by its rulers by advocation of wrong methods of development thereby ruining its future prospects Education ia another aspect that India didn't pay attention especially to girls India went wrong Firstly by advocating wrong design for brininging about development with nothing really been done for development next in the name upliftment of the poor couldn't work much on the contrary they were left as suchWhile even China did a better job inspite all the civil problems in improving the standard of livingI was wondering when the leaders knew that nothing much was happening for the country's progress why did none dared to put an end to those strategy and planning and thinking about something newBy reading all these I was wondering okay now what to be done that's when Das optimistically points out that India has realised that economic progress is the only way to bring change in the face of the country to go ahead in facets of the generationNow the country has realised that its all about the revolutionary ideas that will help the country to think out of the box rather following the outdated policies Many private entepreneurs are on the move slowly but steadily building up India in a good wayAccording to him the Liberal revolution opening up to new foreign trade and investment and boom in Information technology is the key that should be put in level for the country to go aheadIndia has failed bigtime in building up the human uotient in terms of harnessing their abilities which would bring about the needed outcomeHe says its high time that India stops battling between the conservative Nehruvian socialist caste ridden views and new global capitalismI do not think that an overnight change that he has described is feasible but like his optimism for a change is definitely on the cardHe has written the book in an autobiographical style reflecting upon the policies of the government like a common man might feel when he reads about the policy by the leadersSometimes thinking about its implications and futureIn that aspect the book is been able to built the intimacy with the readerEven for a person with less knowlede in economy and politics nothing seemed jargon
