The Rise of India

Recently finished the book 'The Rise of India' by Niranjan Rajadhyaksha. Very interesting read that gave a vivid picture of the Indian economic history ( on a high level) and the realistic issues the country faces ranging from corruption to population to poor government reforms etc. It is a good read for young MBA students to get a fast track view on the past and current bottlenecks that the country faces.

The author also talks in detail on how India missed the Asian race post independence till early 90's and how the energetic Indian youth is catching up currently and also talks about future projections. It was definitely an enjoyable read.

It is certainly encouraging that prominent leaders like Nandan M. Nilekani (one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine, 2006.) have read this book and acknowledged it.
As a part of continuous learning, corporates and political parties should enforce that leaders read these kind of books for the benefit of those that they serve.
