This one-of-a-kind book brings together India's young parliamentarians, cutting across ideologies, geographies and political affiliations. These nation-builders provide perspectives on a wide range of issues from cutting-edge technology to rural development; from world-class healthcare to affordable bio fuels; from infrastructure-building to cyber security; from sweeping political reforms to education for all. Despite the seemingly contrasting paths, they all stand united in their desire for the upliftment of each and every Indian. The voices of these young men and women cannot be ignored, for they are the leaders of tomorrow, the ones who will chart the course of India's future. At once vigorously analytical and vividly written, India-The Future is Now is a must-read for anyone interested in India and its role in world economy, and as a flag-bearer of democracy and peace.
