      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    Many Indians have admitted that “India grows at night”. This is just half the saying which is actually: “Indian grows at night…when the government sleeps”. This comes to say that the nation is rising despite the state. Many will also agree that India is a country of private success and public failure.

    Summary of the Book

    Even though the behavior of the government has been affecting our public life, the country has been growing more and more prosperous each day. Though, how is it that the nation is able to grow when it has a government that is weak and continues to fail us? Don't you agree that it would be fruitful to the nation if the country grew even during the day, i.e., if public policy supported private enterprise? According to the author, India requires a strong and stable state. This will be a state that will have the authority to take quick action, and would have to abide rules that will ensure that the actions are legitimate. However, this would be very difficult to achieve considering the fact that throughout history India is known to have a weak state and a strong society.

    A tough read

    I'm a fan of Gurcharan Das. I've read India Unbound and The Elephant Paradigm. Both of which I whole heartedly recommend.
    However this book is a tough read. It reads like a textbook. I found myself skipping whole pages in order not to fall asleep. Even if I fully endorse everything he says (strong state to implement law and order is necessary to grow) I wish the book was more full of stories of India and examples of successes and failures. This was the beauty of the other 2 books I mentioned....

    Cant read this at Night !

    Mr Das has done quite a research but the findings are all over the place! Except that we need a strong state that implements law and order, which in turn would build confidence in the minds of the investor - nothing much may come out of this book. I wouldn’t want to be a critique and all that since Mr Das has some wonderful and thoughtful books written preceding this one .. but .. Beware do not read this at night, you may fall off your bed :) Asleep !!

    Good Read..but very slow..

    Must confess that Mr. Grurcharn Das is one of the finest writers on Indian Economy & Curret affairs.

    However this book deals with the issues which we have currently faces in last few years & the journalist community has written loads of pages on these issues..because of this the air is taken out of this book, since there is nothing new in the book, but just one more opinion.

    This book could have been more enlightening had he followed the book writing model of Sir Mark Tully; this book shoul...

    Yet another marvel!

    In this extremely well written book, Mr. Das tries to evaluate the indian perspective of Democracy and how it is the largest as well as unique in the world!
    Through various examples and analyses, he takes us through the journey of understanding our past and present.

    India Unbound is still better

    This book is the logical successor of India Unbound. The writing style has changed a lot to include numerous references for every statement. Also, the narration is focused on essay style, rather than the flowy, story-telling style of India Unbound.
    Still, the book is quite informational and brings you up to speed on the zeitgeist of India.

    Extremely Delightful

    Das has shown his mastery over the subject as well his renowned ability to lucidly put his point across. A book without any claim to fame yet nonetheless quite worthy of it.
