For over two decades now, India is seen to be on the cusp of claiming its place in the ‘Asian Century’.
The country―the largest democracy in the world―is generally considered an emerging power due to its abundant natural resources, large and stable population, policy of free-market economics, rapid advancements in science and technology, rule of law and culture of peace. Even with all these factors seeming to be in favour, India still has to overcome major challenges such as regional and societal income disparities, moving up the value chain towards greater innovation, and bringing about an overhaul in its manner of governance for the nation to prosper and actually step into the future.

This visionary document presents India’s national assets, its problems/liabilities and their inter-relationships to identify those at the top of the hierarchy, and the quality of life and lifestyles we wish to achieve in various sectors (urban, rural or tribal). The authors then delineate important actionable points and the steps that Indian government(s) ought to take so that the nation can reach the goals towards which all development should take us.

Trained as a scientist, Chandana Chakrabarti is a communications expert, columnist and writer, whose writings have covered a variety of fi elds and issues.
