Unlike India Unbound , this book focuses primarily on post-independent India and takes a more pragmatic approach towards understanding the problems of contemporary India. Overall, the book is divided into four sets of ideas, that have arrived, that are in progress, that are still being debated and finally, that have yet to become part of public debate.

For education, it was decided to follow the three-language formula — Hindi, English and a regional language. Even though we have an English-language based economy, a political education policy which tried to suppress English teaching in government schools destroyed the future of several, especially poor, children.

Over time, primarily due to outsourcing, liberalization and private schools, the attitude towards English has changed. Understanding computers are enablers instead of job eaters The fear among labor unions that technology would destroy jobs was so great that for computerization of banks, computers were referred to as Ledger Posting Machines.

Positive attitude towards globalization From the initial fear of globalization leading to colonialism to globalization which provides more opportunities, improves the standard of living and eliminates poverty Ideas that are in progress People are already aware of these and completing them is now a matter of time.

Better cities Just after independence, our leaders hated cities, for them, they were a symbol of colonial past. Politics regularly favored rural development to the extent that states showed their urban areas as rural to get funds from the center despite the fact that India was urbanizing at a rapid pace. Badly planned urban agglomerations and slums are a consequence of these bad policies.

The cities that were built Chandigarh, Dispur, Durgapur, etc. Better highways Despite having inherited a huge rail infrastructure from British Raj, the additions to that were minimal till Konkan Railway project was started in the s , similarity the improvements made to roads were equally insignificant.

Ideas in battle Citizens and politicians are aware but afraid to talk about these. Unfortunately, no one is willing to fix them. A cultural preference for white-collar jobs promotes theoretical knowledge over vocational training. Healthcare While rural India is still suffering from diseases like TB, malaria due to poor healthcare , urban India is already in a grip of lifestyle diseases obesity, diabetes.

The twin problems have to be handled simultaneously. Social security or lack thereof While India should not follow the western model of the welfare state which has already drained the treasuries of most western countries , the assumption that the trend of children taking care of their parents at old age will continue is equally invalid. Environment When the western countries were growing, they were able to slowly outsource their industrial pollution to the third world through colonization and then globalization , since that option is simply not available anymore for the developing world, they have to develop while taking care of the environment.

A public-private partnership oriented energy grid from which people can buy as well as sell power to can not only reduce power shortages but will also encourage adoption of renewable sources of energy.
