About This Item

New Delhi: Penguin Books. November 2002. Trade Paperback. First Edition / full number line. As New. Pristine inside and out. Not from a library. No remainder mark. 301 pages.

A collection of essays about an ancient civilization's reawakening to the spirit and potential of its youth. The essays range over subjects as varied as panchayati raj, national competitiveness, and the sacred and philosophical concerns of the average Indian consequent to India's entry into the age of liberation. While India may never roar ahead like the Asian tigers, Das argues, it will advance like a wise elephant, moving steadily and surely, pausing occasionally to reflect on its past and to enjoy the journey. Divided into three sections, the book first establishes a context for the changes that have occurred, and then assesses how Indians have changed or not changed in their public and private lives. As he sweeps over the major political, social and economic developments, he does not forget to examine the individual beliefs and aspirations that underpin the process.
