Summary
"In this book Tharoor describes the vast changes that have recently transformed this once sleeping giant into a world leader in the realms of science and technology, a nation once poverty-stricken that now boasts a middle class of over 300 million people - as large as the entire population of the United States." "In his characteristically lucid prose Tharoor discusses the strengths and weaknesses of his rapidly changing homeland in five areas - politics, economics, culture, society, and sports. Artfully combining hard facts and statistics with opinion and observation, he takes a fresh look at the world's second most populous country."--BOOK JACKET
