These essays encompass an overall view of India’s progress in the preceding quarter of the century and, after examining several probables of socio-political origin, outline novel and refreshing perspectives for the future.Though covering various fields and reflecting divergent views, the essays are permeated with a heightened sense of unity, which is fully in tune with national aspirations and is derived from faith in India’s destiny. Sparkling, perceptive, literary, analytical, interdisciplinary and uncommonly striking, these excursions into the past and the future carry a stamp of individually and distinctiveness. A unique exercise in futurology, the volume is addressed to all those who are privileged to witness and participate in the rise of a New India.
