<b>India Unbound</b> - The Social and Economic Revolution from Independence to the Global Information Age by Gurcharan Das.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->“Something tremendous is happening in India, and Das, with his keen eye and often elegant prose, has his finger firmly on the pulse of the transformation.”–The New York Times Book Review

“One of the most readable and insightful books to appear on India’s tortuous economic path in its 54 years since shaking off British rule.”–Business Week

“Head and shoulders above the customary bunch. This elegant essay has something for everyone.”–St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“For American readers accustomed to view India as a land of tigers rather than high-tech and maharajahs rather than microchips, this book will come as a welcome surprise.” --The Washington Post Book World

“Informative, entertaining, and basically correct about India’s need to embrace capitalism more wholeheartedly, for all the costs and risks.” —The Economist<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

Emailed vignettes from an IT Consultant's life. For lack of other avenues, she conveys all her views and ideas by email.....including her philosophy on various aspects of the management and entrepreneurial worlds. Through a series of fictional scenarios, the author has conveyed thought-inspiring intellectual debates on Management, and suggested tangible and alternative approaches on how to improve People Management practices on a global scale.
