The author raised the questions in the book :
“What is an Indian?” We seriously need to do an introspection to find the answer to the question, “What is an Indian?”
“What good is only acquiring knowledge if you cannot take it at least one step ahead?
“Can a nation be made in a day?”
At the end of the story, the author tried to explain the solution of all these issues and challenges faced by Indian Society.
In the ending of the book, the author summarized what's an Indian in one line
“Indian does not imply an individual or group but it signifies the whole nation united as one.”

The writing style is good.
The language is easy to understand.
What I Liked: Well explained the issues and challenges with giving suitable examples and Quotes and provided a good solution to overcome these issues.

Overall it's a worthy read.
