India is destined to play a major role in shaping the 21st Century. It is the second largest country in the world by population, and the world’s largest democracy. India embraces many different peoples, languages and religions. Nowhere has older or deeper cultures, or so much diversity. In recent years, rapid economic growth has made it one of the world’s leading economies, a position that seems certain to strengthen. India is also a nuclear power, with the world’s second largest army.

India is a land of great contrasts. Modern developments sit side by side with the very ancient. World class technologies are emerging in a country struggling with massive problems with basic infrastructure. Millions graduate from university each year but basic education is a problem for many millions more. A growing and ever more prosperous middle class has emerged but hundreds of millions live in poverty.

Quicklook at India explores all of these areas, and more, in a short book (or ebook) that opens up the history, culture and current affairs of one of the most intriguing countries in the world. Quicklook at India is an amazing insight from someone with a deep understanding and undying love for the country of her birth.
