India Unbound is the riveting story of a nation’s rise from poverty to prosperity and the clash of ideas that occurred along the way. Today’s India is a vibrant free-market democracy, and it has begun to flex its muscles in the global information economy. The old centralized, bureaucratic state, which stifled industrial growth, is on the decline; the lower castes have risen confidently through the ballot box; and the middle class has tripled in the last two decades. This economic and social transformation is one of the major themes of this book. Defining and exploring the new mind set of the nation, India Unbound is the perfect introduction to contemporary India. Examining the highs and lows of independent India through the prism of history and his own experiences, Gurcharan Das defines a new mind set of the nation.
