About the Book

For more than four decades after Independence, India was associated with the plodding, somnolent elephant, comfortably resting on the achievements of centuries gone by. Then in the early 1990s, the elephant seemed to wake up from its slumber and slowly begin to change-until today, some see it morphing into a tiger. So what does the twenty-first century hold for India? Will it bring the strength of the tiger and the size of an elephant to bear upon the world? Or will it remain an elephant at heart? In this companion volume to the bestselling India: From Midnight to the Millennium and Beyond, Shashi Tharoor analyses the forces that have made twenty-first century India and could yet unmake it.
