First hand account of the way the Indian economy was shaped since Independence of India
I read this book after reading the Book by Bipin Chandar titled "India's struggle for Independence". In many ways it was confounding of sorts to me. Reading Bipin Chandra and Gurucharan Das was a complete contrast in many ways that one. The first hand narration of some stories from his work life are just too moving to read, especially if you can empathize with the entrepreneurship of state mind. how the License Raj era curtailed the dreams of so many. The part where the interaction of Gurucharan Das with Indiara Gandhi, the then PM of India was eye opener of sorts to me.
Gurucharan Das, so often, or mostly comes across as a very liberal in his views on policies, though he never suggests this as a panacea for all the issues India faces today. but I find it, at times too liberal. or maybe for the fact that the recent occupy wall street campaigns et.al. have kinda of made me wary of the effectiveness of capitalism and liberalism in the absolute form they exist today. I may want to differ with Grucharan Das a bit here and there but all in all I just had to agree with the views expressed in this book while reading.
How mixed economy caused has wrecked havoc and the Idealism based Foreign Policy is bad, and authors interaction with Henry Kissinger where Kissinger criticizes Nehru's Foreign Policies are some of the highlights of the book.
Read this book, Every Indian need to read this book, just to get an idea why India could have been a better story and why it is not.
