The Struggle and The Promise: Restoring India’s Potential

‘What is India’s future? I deeply believe in India’s promise, in our potential for great achievement. I am also old enough to appreciate our ability to snatch failure from the jaws of success.’

About the Book:

THE PROMISE: Our diverse culture has something for everyone. Our young population is thirsty for education and achievement. And a strong private sector is our engine of growth. We can lead the world in the future.

THE STRUGGLE: We struggle to create a business-friendly environment. We lag in innovation. Education, public health, and the quality of jobs demand attention. Our governments control some things too much and neglect others.

How can the government, citizens, and firms turn our struggle into a promise and enable India to lead? How can we fix things by learning from best practices elsewhere? How can we ensure openness, inclusivity, and innovation? How can independent institutions make up for low state capacity? How can our culture deliver leadership?
