Summary of Imagining India
The Idea of a Renewed Nation
An entrepreneur with a seminal role in India’s economic resurgence reveals his nation’s promise and peril.
Many businesspeople believe that India’s national economy will be a dominant international force in the future. India’s vast resources, untapped human capital and enterprising businesses cast it firmly in the role of global economic powerhouse. Nandan Nilekani, co-founder and co-chairman of Infosys, the corporate services giant, offers an insider’s view of his home country’s remarkable progress and ever-present challenges. He pulls no punches in detailing India’s problems, ranging from political to cultural to economic matters, but in so doing, he paints a revealing portrait of a nation slowly coming to grips with myriad issues. This substantial book is detailed, sometimes too much so for the casual reader, but its wealth of insight and information make reading it a worthwhile endeavor. getAbstract recommends Nilekani’s honest assessment of India – past, present and future.
