Description

About the Book

Today, India is a powerful democracy with a promising market for uninterrupted growth. The financial renaissance is only multiplying in magnitude as foreign investments flood in and the domestic industries continue to flourish. However, all this was not achieved by a handful of people overnight. The nation has witnessed and endured decades of experiments, revolutions, losses and learnings to reach where it is now. In India Unbound: From Independence To The Global Information Age, Gurcharan Das records the very same adventures and discusses the country's probable future in the global market.

The book comprises 3 parts, chronologically structured to cover different phases of the developing economy. These parts are further sectioned into a total of 23 chapters exploring the influences of Capitalism, Socialism, and Privatization on India. The Paper Route, Bazaar Power, Merchants of Marwar, and Modern vs. Western are a few of these intriguing chapters. A few social phenomenon such as the caste system and class struggle are also deliberated along with an adept analysis of licensing rules and other evolving regulations. The author amalgamates his personal experiences in an attempt to explain the contemporary global economy.

India Unbound: From Independence To The Global Information Age scrutinizes various governmental policies like the Garibi Hatao policy, and picks on the incompetent bureaucratic set-up that hindered economic and political progress for a long period. The author also lists prominent figures whose roles and contributions have been pivotal in shaping development. With the prerogative of having been a CEO of a multinational company, Das skillfully writes about industrial strategies, money, and political hold, all of which can be utilized better to revive the wealthy nation that India once was. He puts together such substantial material in the simplest possible text to make the book coherent even to a layman looking to gain insights on India's legacy and future. India Unbound: From Independence To The Global Information Age was published in 2000.
