The buzzword of the twenty-first century is India—and it's not just a story of software, outsourcing, and faraway call centers. With the economy soaring at 8 percent a year, India is a medical and pharmaceutical front-runner, an R&D powerhouse, a rising manufacturing hub, and an up-and-coming cultural trendsetter in areas from fashion to film.

The entire book reads like an overly dragged essay/summary of my school history education.

First 100 pages: It did nothing for me except maybe give me a couple of people/events to look up online, if I wanted to learn anything about them beyond the first paragraph of their Wikipedia page.
Rest of the book: Meh. This part definitely had more information, but also left much more to be desired. More people and events to look up.

Maybe someone who's never studied/read about basics of Indian history woul

We listened to this audio book on a car trip over the last couple days. The descriptions of India and the short history have their moments but for the most part, it's right-wing propaganda. The author is strongly anti-China and anti-Muslim, and very pro-America and pro-growth. Though I love India for many reasons, I don't like the motivation behind the alliance this book pushes.

found it very interesting at first but then it became very subjective.

Reading the success stories of India's biggest achiever's in the corporate world was a very fascinating journey. Also, the American outlook towards Indian Age makes a wonderful read. Recommended!

Really great information about the rise of India. It's pretty fascinating and isn't dry at all. My boss had me read it, and I actually really enjoyed it.

There are over a dozen books on India and modern india. I wouldn't recommend this as the top book. Mostly redundant information, only for those like me who are obsessed about the new Indian Economy

This book was awesome. India is a fascinating case study in what happens when there is an almost instant transition from a Soviet and then British controlling and bureaucratic government to an almost textbook democratic free market. Entrepreneurial spirit and technology are soaring while safety and infrastructure lag behind. The author of the book, Vinay Rai, had incredible success starting a billion dollar, diversified business in India. What he describes as a “reverse brain drain” from slow, p ...more

“All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.”
― Kabir

I like how they analyze Thomas Freidman’s slight mis-reading of the Flattening of the world, and understand how India certainly has—and will—take advantage of their strengths which puts them ahead of many other Developing Nations with Internet and technological advances. I think I’m missing a few points, or simply disagree with their take, however, it will fascinating to watch how some of the

This book by Dr. Vinay Rai, Advisor at Rai Foundation and Rai University, is a fascinating read for dynamic businessmen and also for those who want to get in-depth knowledge about India along with its new muscle on the global stage. A prominent businessman himself, Dr. Rai shares his vast knowledge regarding India’s relations with countries round the world, and how it affects global trade.

A nice book describing the rise of India in the late 20th and early 21st century and what will be its impact on the world scenario.

Breezy read. Treasurehouse of information for those who are new to India. Puts our country in a positive light (may be over positive). Downplays the negatives. Overall an ok read.
