Farms, not factories.
When industry is the path to prosperity.
Ancient, archaic laws
When the majority of Indians are less than 25 years old.
Armies of unemployed.
When companies are hunting for skilled workers.
Half-built highways.
When its people dream of speed.
Indias problems can seem overwhelming. But solutions exist.

In Restart, Mihir S. Sharma shows what can and must change in Indias policies, its administration and even its attitudes. The answers he provides are not obvious. Nor are they all comforting or conventional. Yet they could, in less time than you can imagine, unleash the creativity of a billion hopeful Indians.

About the Author

Mihir S. Sharma was born in Delhi and grew up in Chandigarh, Mumbai, Jamshedpur and in Kolkata. He was trained as an economist and a political scientist before dropping ignobly out of academia. Like many others unable to concentrate on any one thing long enough to write a dissertation, he drifted from one thing to another till he found the closest thing to paid unemployment in a capitalist society-journalism. He now writes and edits opinion for the Business Standard newspaper in New Delhi.
