This book takes a candid look at the India of 1990s and contrasts it with the India of Nehru and Gandhi in the 1950s. What has changed in the half-century? And what has not? In many ways, India has modernized: the country has industrialized and opened up its trade and financial markets; India is actively pursuing its nuclear and space programmes. And yet, in many other ways, India has reverted to its traditional roots. This book attempts to analyze the changes - political, social and economic - that have taken place in India in the last 50 years and projects what could happen in the future in the fields of politics, food supply, community development and the environment.
