I was given this book by the Global CEO of McKinsey & Company after meeting him, but I am a delighted recipient and have enjoyed the individual essays by distinguished Indians reviewing their own land. I had written a small book, Quicklook at India my fourth on India to try and help business people understand and respect the land to which they come and with which they aspire to do business. This book gives the businessperson a greater insight and should be hugely helpful to them. If nothing else the reader would understand that there are hugely influential Indians who seek to power up their own country. India has been held back from her natural place in the world by some serious challenges like corruption, inertia and bad governance and unless these are addressed India will not take her place as a twenty first century leader. I do hope that progress is now made under a new determined leader.
