India has grown into a power to be reckoned with, economically. The tremendous economic changes that the country has witnessed in the last decade or two, has led to major changes: cultural, political as well as social. Internationally too, the country has come of age on the political scene. In his book,Nandan Nilekani, the co-founder of one of the biggest Indian Multinationals, Infosys, uses his global experience as a prominent, and respected entrepreneur, and gives us an explicit interpretation of the past, present, as well as the country's coming future.

Having participated, from the forefront, in India's economic growth, he has the experience which enables him to predict the economic future of this fast growing nation, and to point out the changes and reforms required to ensure its growth. In Imagining India, Nilekani focusses on the internal challenges that India is facing, and the measures required to address these issues.

India, according to him has tremendous potential, which it has not yet realized. And to achieve this, it first has to tackle some deep rooted, and age old internal issues. Problems in health, education, environment have to be dealt with head on. The social, educational, monetary inequalities are responsible for stunting India's growth - these have to be resolved. Good education, job opportunities have to be made available to all. Caste system and other such social evils have to be wiped out. Urbanization has to be encouraged. All inequalities, and differences which are limiting our ability to take advantage of the great opportunities that come our way have to abolished.
