India Grows At Night

Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ç Gurcharan Das India Grows At Night Download Ð 0 Indians wryly admit that India grows at night But that is only half the saying; the full expression is India grows at night when the government sleeps suggesting that the nation may be rising despite the state Indias is a tale of private success and public failure Prosperity is indeed spreading across the country even as. India grows at night while the government sleeps India s growth in the last few decades is not because of the Indian Government but despite it is the basic premise of this book by Gurucharan Das He emphasizes how historically India has always been bestowed with a strong populace but rather a weak government Be it the warring kings of the princely states or the marauding foreign invaders or now the populist democratic government except a few exceptions India has not got the opportunity to have rulers who could establish a strong liberal state by imposing the rule of law Yet India has grown owing to its resilient and opportunistic people Das believes that if we can mend our system of governance India s growth can have no limit In the recent events of Anna Hazare movement where India saw its vibrant middle class for the first time came out to the streets leaving their cozy armchairs Das saw the glimpse of hope of that happening However this book definitely doesn t do justice to the expectations and credibility that comes along with the author owing to his educational Harvard Graduate professional CEO of PG India and public intellectual author of the brilliant India Unbound credentials As a proponent of free market Das repeats the theory of Weak State vs Strong Society and drags it throughout the book without presenting any other idea Even he realizes this and admits in the conclusion As I look back on what I have written in this book I cannot escape a feeling of asymmetry Das s this book manages to be informative but unfortunately fails to enlighten To redeem he tries to present some common sense ideas for solution like forming a new secular open economy ideological party execute the rule of law etc but those are half baked and lack the conviction Also now that Anna Hazare s movement has failed to achieve its intended result too much emphasis on that movement doesn t make this book clairvoyantThis book is readable and not complete waste of time but sadly doesn t live up to the expectations

review India Grows At Night

Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ç Gurcharan Das India Grows At Night Download Ð 0 Governance failure pervades public life But how could a nation become one of the worlds fastest growing economies when its governed by a weak ineffective state And wouldnt it be wonderful if India also grew during the dayin other words if public policy supported private enterprise What India needs Gurcharan Das says is. I started the book with high expectations but was disappointed Although Das gives a account of the origins of the weak Indian State but he is repetitive almost the same thing has been said in most of the chaptersand the worst thing is that same words and phraseology has been usedThere is almost nothing new in the book and the ideas given are common knowledgeAlsothe strong advocacy of open market economy and economic reforms by Gurcharan Das may not go down well with some readersBut in spite of these lacunaethe book is readableIt presents the grim picture of the Indian State and exhorts the rising middle class to take steps to change itDas is wary of the Anna Hazare type movements and says that although such movements awaken the people but they weaken the institutions of the State which are necessary for the functioning of democracyButhe also warns the political class that if it doesn t reform itself then it may lead to the unwarranted situation of civil war in the countryHe also tries to disentangle the concept of dharma from religion and says that it is the part of Indian tradition and discourse in the same way as liberty was and is of American traditionHe defines dharma as doing the right thing and says that we must inculcate the values of dharma to bring a change in ourselves as well as societyThe emphasis of the book is on creating a liberal but strong state which takes decisive action and takes it uicklyAlthough to many it may seem that Gurcharan Das is advocating free market and the principle of laissez faire but to the contrary he criticizes the American republicans advocating the policy of laissez faire and says that strong regulation by state is necessary for the smooth functioning of the marketHe pitches for strongly regulated capitalismBy giving examples from history Das tries to prove that a strong government is necessary for the development of India and he fairly succeeds in his endeavor
