Over the past twenty-five years, India has moved from a largely impoverished, underdeveloped country to an innovative, fastchanging society. This entertaining and informative book shows how and why. Interest in India has never been greater. Here Shashi Tharoor, one of the subcontinent'¬"s most respected writers and diplomats, offers precious insights into this complex, multifaceted land, which despite its dazzling diversity of languages, customs, and cultures remains'¬ ;more than sixty years after its founding'¬ ;the world'¬"s largest democracy. He describes the vast changes that have transformed this once sleeping giant into a world leader in 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. Artfully combining hard facts and statistics with opinion and observation, Tharoor discusses the strengths and weaknesses of his rapidly evolving homeland in five areas'¬ ;politics, economics, culture, society, and sports'¬ ;and takes a fresh look at the world'¬"s oldest civilizations and most populous countries.

Shashi Tharoor was born in London and brought up in Bombay and Calcutta. He has written for the New York Times , the Washington Post , the International Herald Tribune , the Times of India , and Foreign Affairs . A human rights activist and winner of a Commonwealth Writers Prize, he is currently a member of the Indian Parliament and lives in New Dehli, India.
