The Broken Ladder

The Paradox and The Potential of India’s One Billion


Krishna presents a ground-up view of emergent realities, delving into the lives of ordinary individuals. Through decades-long investigations, while living in villages and slum communities, he reveals the eye-opening details of missed opportunities and the immense untapped talent that can be honed to enable tremendous consequences for growth and equity.
From presenting possible solutions to the problems of neediness and inequity to considering ways of fixing inequalities of opportunity, The Broken Ladder is a comprehensive account of development strategies in a fast-growing economy.
