The India Mosaic: Searching for an Identity

Bibek Debroy (Editor) D. Shyam Babu (Editor)
Synopsis The India Mosaic : Searching for an Identity is essentially a collection of writings borne out of deliberate thinking to pen down ones thoughts on the 'Idea' of India. The authors/contributors to this volume together represent a varied cross-section of India's intelligentsia. The 'Idea' of India has been interpreted by different people in different ways. Perhaps there is no single 'Idea' of India at all. Whatever be the interpretation (or interpretations) of the idea of India, there is an unambiguous sense that there is an attempt to change the idea of India. Consciously, to any Indian, the idea of India triggers a lot of thoughts, some overwhelming feelings maybe, but far too many questions. Perhaps for most, there aren't any easy answers. There is plenty of food for thought in these papers about what India stands for and about what it should stand for. The world and India are bullish about the Indian economic performance in the next 20 or even 50 years. A recent Goldman Sachs report (Dreaming with BRICs: The path to 2050) is but one instance. The economy is the easy part. But India stands for much more than the overall economic performance alone. There is much in this volume for India's citizens to think about.
