Transforming India (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 184

How you ever wondered -
  • Why is India so poor?
  • Is India a free country really or is it under ?British Raj post 1947?
  • How can it become a rich nation?
  • How will India meet the challenges it faces in energy, urbanization, transportation and infrastructure?
  • What will it take to fix India's dysfunctional education system?
  • Where should the focus of rural development be - rural people or rural areas?
  • Why does the ''license permit quota control raj'' inevitably lead to rampant public corruption?
  • Should government run businesses at massive public losses?
  • What can you do to make a difference and bring about positive change?

If you have, then this book is for you.

It is about India's possible transformation from a very poor, impoverished, ''Third-world'' nation to a rich, developed, dynamic country by 2040. For us to make that happen, we must intelligently ask and honestly answer questions such as those. This book is an attempt at addressing them and outlining a course of action. We must act but awareness and understanding have to precede action. We have to understand precisely what has impeded India's progress to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. We have to rescue and transform India ''' we owe it to ourselves, our children, and our children's children.

Bit disappointed

Brought with great enthusiasm. But disappointed with the content. It will says fantacy or too optimistic thing without telling how it can happen. For e.g. it talks about all voters being educated and form a group with great ideals which there by brings in great go in good govt so on and so forth. It doesn't speak about 'how' people got transformed, which underpins the whole thing.
