If India would've been a living lady this book would've been her personal diary I gave 5 stars to this book I only do this with those books which change my life Forget about all the information and knowledge that you would derive out of this masterpiece the real gist of it lies in the astute observational inferences which goes a mile further by not only giving a realistic picture of India and its evolution but also by explaining the reason behind it Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny and now that time comes when we shall redeem our pledge not wholly or in full measure but very substantially At the stroke of the midnight hour when the world sleeps India will awake to life and freedom With these words our country woke up to freedom and with freedom a whole new direction and dreams with a diefied guide none other than Mr Nehru But the principle error in diefying a human being or an organisationINC for that matter is that the very act of dissent becomes sacrilegious It has often been observed that bad experiences teach wrong lessons and in this case it was India's perception of capitalistic traders turning into rulerscolonialism which pushed it towards the embrace of soviet model of socialism Our leaders could only see the euitable distribution of jobs food and prosperity but they turned a blind eye towards excessive controls overegualtion and parochialism of the ideology 40 years of continued socialistic practises created an India which was unheard of in the ancient historical and mythological books a corrupt immoral society which only desired to have power and pelf Let's see how did this happenThe basic assumption of socialism is that government holds the interest of its people above everything and based on that logic it should've control over all the major components of an economy which includes sectors like mining petroleum etc Now whatsoever minuscule amount of private entrepreneurship which was mushrooming was nipped in the bud under stupid regulatory rules like to produce and reinvest their profits they had to seek permission of the government Rather than focusing on self improvement and innovation government offices became new temples for the entrepreneurs officials became the gods and wishes were of licenses and uotas In time as Indian culture has always been an epitome of we endured We realised that rather spending energy on creative endeavours it's easier to gratify the needs of government officials as well as democrats Unfortunately decades of practise in managing government has led to a severe decline in creative energies of Indian population as it lost the very importance utility and relevanceIt may seem to one that our country is doomed now and there's no hope and some would even say that's the popular opinion even among the natives Is it so Plenty of tomes can be found on how congress should've proceeded but that is something we came upon after the post mortem didn't we If only there was a pre mortem maybe the course of the history of our country would've had spanned out differently But there is one thing that congress did which it hardly gets credit for It represented a multi cultural India united and even proud of the diversity but as we know that it is an unfortunate weakness of a democracy that it cannot specify the time period in which it can deliver on to the promises to every community which eventually leads to the disenchantment of democracy and engenders sectarianism Since then or less it has always been about which community is moving forward and at which community's expense Religious fundamentalism has taken its roots and is fostering at an alarming rate An interesting interpretation of Hinduism is enunciated by Mr Tharoor in this book which says that Hinduism is the only religion in the world which has not claimed to be the only path to attain salvation doesn't consider itself to be infallible and establishes the concept of dualism that encapsulates life in a circle Now to uote the rainbow parts since all the dirt has already been amply described of the India since independence What we really miss out on as we are really not looking for it is that while we continuously focus on what could or should've been done when there was time or opportunity but we really did endure that Despite of all the negativities that impeded our growth; emergency corruption politicisation etc; we have still remained a shining star in the subcontinent even though our shine kept flickering now and then but it remained there Literacy self sufficiency in case of food private entrepreneurship are some of the major highlights post liberalisation which has brought India onto the global map and there are various ways in which we can continue these series of miracles But in my personal opinion the best method is through education be it social awareness giving a fillip to creative forces of the natives sex education and what not Nothing works better than education What we can really do is that work on the nuances of education by edifying people as to what consists of education and how really can it help and this includes examples like spreading awareness regarding certain laws like women cannot be kept in jails after sunset and can only be arrested by a woman officer financial literacy like helping people to open up Demat accounts and start through safe trading in government bonds then stock markets educating people in tax laws like capital bonds which can save capital gain tax upto 50 lac Hope is a toxic intoxication they say but I relate it to an elixir named felix felesis mentioned in Harry Potter which means liuid luck Our country is rapidly changing from a place where Anything is possible to be imbibed by peopleunfortunately even the bad habits of intoxication to a place where People cannot be trusted with their own freedom I cannot provide you with any statistical data but just a humble apprehension that if we fail to take action now our posterity won't be kind towards us Especially with the current pace of intolerance that is growing Someone has rightfully saidMr Tharoor History is its own revenge How Don't worry our posterity will let us know;

Tharoor a gifted writer takes us on tour of India's economy politics caste system and religious beliefs in the post Gandhi periodHe conveys the message of India's harmonious pluralism while simultaneously expressing his understandable cynicism towards Hinduism and Indira Gandhi Most of his insights are very accurate for this vibrant country with multiple dichotomies However certain chapters are presented as an auto biography personal beliefs versus an objective analysis of India's future prospectsHe fails to fully describe solutions to India's political and economic issues Most NRIs can relate very well to this book myself included but preaching about India's shortcomings without providing possible resolutions render it a weak summary Nevertheless Tharoor's literary style is uniue and well constructed use of words make it a worthwhile read
