The Turn of the Tortoise

The Turn of the Tortoise

The Challenge and Promise of India’s Future

T.N. Ninan
Select Preferred Format

It is said of India that it is the country of the future-and will remain so

In The Turn of the Tortoise, distinguished journalist T.N. Ninan addresses a range of contemporary questions as only he can-looking at why the economy lost steam, the emerging trends in politics, the Chinese shadow over India, and the relationship between the state and the citizen. He asks whether manufacturing can be made a success story, what the size of the neo-middle class is, who the aam aadmi really is, and if it is possible to put an end to extreme poverty now. And finally, the big question-has India’s turn finally come?

This wide-ranging book is an attempt to understand, through data and analysis, where India stands today, why it has emerged the way it has, and what the next ten years might bring. For anyone interested in India and its future, this is essential and enlightening reading.
