T.N. Ninan gave fresh shape and brought a new liveliness to business journalism in India during a quarter century of leadership at India Today, the Economic Times, BusinessWorld and finally at Business Standard where he also served as the publisher before becoming its chairman. His Saturday column 'Weekend Ruminations' has a dedicated following. He serves on the boards of non-profit organizations, including one that supports public-spirited journalism. This is his first book.
Has India's turn finally come? It is said of India that it is the country of the future-and will remain so. In The Turn of the Tortoise, distinguished journalist T.N. Ninan addresses a range of contemporary questions as only he can-looking at why the economy lost steam, the emerging trends in politics, the Chinese shadow over India, and the relationship between the state and the citizen. This wide-ranging book is an attempt to understand, through data and analysis, where India stands today, why it has emerged the way it has and what the next ten years might bring.
