Seven Strategic Advantages That Can Catapult India to Wealth
Game India is an ambitious and engaging book which outlines seven key strategic growth areas for India. Bhaskar tells it through the companies and people who have propelled growth in these industries in the past-for example, Verghese Kurien (milk), the Pais (banking), Tanishq (gold), De Beers (diamonds) and so on.
The book aims to unearth India's strategic advantages; explore what has been done (or not done) to exploit them; what potential they hold out for people; and how they could redefine the game for this country.
Very well-researched, backed by personal anecdotes and industry lore which Bhaskar has been privy to for many years, Game India is essential reading for every Indian looking ahead.
