    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

    India's Journey from the midnight of 15th August to date in the words of former under secretary to the UN Shashi Tharoor. A book which has gained praise from none other than the great Amartya Sen. This must be a Must-Read. In the unique style of Mr. Tharoor using simple language this book flows like a river through the years of the history of our independant nation; both glorious and turbulent times. Nice portrayal of the times under Gentlemen Prime Minister Nehru to the Great Indira Gandhi t...
