    Description

    India: From Midnight to the Millennium and beyond is a book written by Shashi Tharoor that expresses the importance that India enjoys in the global scene and how the country will contribute to the developed world in the future. Tharoor explains India’s connection with some of the most important questions that the present world is facing. The book mentions that India houses one-sixth of the world’s population, a fact that increases the chances of Indians bringing about a change in the international scenario. Tharoor, through his book, also provides answers to questions related to democracy, inefficient political infighting, religious fundamentalism, pluralism and diversity among cultural and religious traditions, the introduction of Western consumer goods, and protectionism. He whips up a book based on his political scholarship, and adds a tinge of his own personal reflections and memories in constructing this polemic work.

    The journey

    An Informative book...

    Highly informative and perspicacious.Certainly recommendable . But there are some information which have been repeated over and over again which makes the book a bit boring at times. Apart from this the book is certainly a good read
