Description

Can India become a First World Nation within the next twenty years? Definitely, say the authors, in this seminal thought-provoking book.

In India 2020, Dr Kalam, a most distinguished scientist and Y S Rajan, who has been closely associated with the space program, examine our strengths - and weaknesses - to offer a vision of how India can be among the world's first five economic powers in the next twenty years.

They cite growth rates and development trends to show that the goal is not an unrealistic one. Past successes, too, bear them out. For example, we were able to launch the green revolution at a time when experts had all but given up on India ever becoming self sufficient in food. Similarly in the field of space technology we started from scratch to have today a system of satellite-based communication linking remote regions of the country. The same sense of purpose can lead us to success in many other areas critical to achieving the goal of a prosperous strong nation.

Extrapolating from current growth rates and trends, and suggesting various improvements and directions, they show that India can soon be well on the way to providing its citizens with a decent standard of living.

REVIEWS:
