What happens when the India’s & World’s best thinkers come together and put up a book together? You get Reimagining India. India is touted as an indispensable emerging market along with China. But like every other nation on this planet, India has its own set of problems. Reimagining India addresses all the problems that this emerging superpower is currently facing due to rising economy and burgeoning middle class. The leading thinkers focus on almost every aspect that shapes up the country, from social to cultural and political to economical. They take you to the past of the country and have made convincing predictions about our beloved country if we can control and manage things the way they should be.
With heavy-duty names like Anand Mahindra, Gurcharan Das, Mukesh Ambani, Ruchir Sharma, Azim Premji, Eric Schmidt, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Vinod Khosla, Nandan Nilekani, Zia Mody, Ramchandra Guha, Harsha Bhogle, Jerry Pinto, Manu Joseph, Suhel Seth, Kumar Mangalam Birla coming together to contribute towards a book that is edited by one of the world’s most renowned consulting firms, Mckinsey & Company, you can’t expect anything less than excellent stuff. And mind you, the above mentioned names are only a handful people who have contributed towards the book. There are many more leaders & thinkers that have made this book what it is with their analysis and opinions about India.
One thing that is common in almost every chapter of the book is that over the next decade is that India has got the right set of opportunities to show the rest of the world how open, democratic societies can achieve high growth and shared prosperity. It is a collection of 60 odd essays which gives pragmatic view of how to tackle various issues, problems and opportunities.
Some of these essays had personal touches as well that will charm you as a reader. Also, it is interesting to read diverse views on similar issues that are insightful, interesting and sound logical. What I felt was missing in the book is nobody address that in spite of identifying the problem areas in our country, why there is no progress made towards correcting them. Nevertheless, this book will make a great weekend read for people are keen on knowing more about India. The book is an amazing anthology of thoughts which will make you think about various thinks or may play an instrumental role in changing your opinions about some issues in our country.
