Despite the seemingly contrasting paths, they all stand united in their desire for the upliftment of each and every Indian. The voices of these young men and women cannot be ignored, for they are the leaders of tomorrow, the ones who will chart the course of India's future. At once vigorously analytical and vividly written, India-The Future it New is a must-read for anyone interested in India and its role in world economy, and as a flag-bearer of democracy peace.
