    Hrishikesh

    Excellent read. Not only an insight into issues facing India in different sectors, but also (more importantly) a set of solutions and recommendations on each subject. Agree or disagree with them is individual preorgative. But will definitely initiate mental process. Highly recommend.

When i started reading this i was amazed to see the criticism about government initiatives of every front ,and these criticism volume were keep increasing with the upcoming chapters. This book remained in my current reading list for long time because everyday i used to expect that today i going to see something different in next chapter but every time i picked the book and i got the same picture and which urge me finally close this book for reading before finishing it, probably i won't pick this book again for reading. This book is written in biased manner because its full of government criticism instead of true solution to real problems. We all know that India is going through periodic change phases,and every time we can't expect that each step taken by government would be positive result oriented, as sometime some action can give negative results too and this how we learn and move ahead. I agree that at certain point in this books some good solution were also suggested which i also think could be fruitful but every time bringing privatization in social frame for making things better could ruin the objective of policies, as its majorly observed that whenever government shake his hand with cooperates without any strong vigilance corruption are prone to be sowed and I don't think so i need to cite example for this too . The best part of this book was the sources of different facts, which probably could help me in future to get current figures whenever i am going to write about any social issue. Earlier i was wondering how could someone can resolve the India's core problems in just 350 pages but now i am very clear on how its possible.

    Short and crisp essays on the various reform agendas in contemporary Indian politics, economy and legal system. One might not agree with all that has been written but the book does a good job in bringing to the forefront the issues that require serious thinking. And of course, heavily biased. (given that it was launched by Modi, one has to expect that)

    The book helps in understanding the nature of problems in different sectors like land reform, judiciary etc. It also tries to provide some solutions to the existing problems but it fails to account the pragmatism in some cases.

    No better way of understanding the current economic scenario of India, than by reading the book written by the renowned economic advisers for the Government on the specific fields of the economy. The book was very educating.

    A must read book for those interested in getting leading intellectuals' perspective on how the India Growth Story can be revived. Doing that would require a host of changes on the economic, diplomatic, administrative front and that's what gets enumerated in the book.

    Recently I had a conversation with an acquaintance of mine regarding the 60 Yrs of dynastic rule. He said, even though he voted for Modi the governance of Cong was right. When I asked and debated him on facts like sycophancy, license raj, quotas, Planning commission and Shenoy’s 2nd 5 year plan dissent note. He shut me up with this statement. “I go on my own analysis of perception based on external data” Me: What external data are you talking about? Him: The buildings & things like that. Now you Recently I had a conversation with an acquaintance of mine regarding the 60 Yrs of dynastic rule. He said, even though he voted for Modi the governance of Cong was right. When I asked and debated him on facts like sycophancy, license raj, quotas, Planning commission and Shenoy’s 2nd 5 year plan dissent note. He shut me up with this statement. “I go on my own analysis of perception based on external data” Me: What external data are you talking about? Him: The buildings & things like that. Now you know why we are the way we are. With this level of knowledge that is equivalent of dust accumulated over a period of few years leftists, secularism and libtards will always rule the roost. Now let me talk about a book: Getting India back on track. Hard bound, thick with 17 chapters of facts, figures and lots of info that makes sense. This book talks a little bit about everything with facts and figures. If that gentleman had read even the introduction probably he would have been better informed. This goes for a lot of us in the social media age. Where rumors spread on ebola & how Tulsi is supposed to be a cure. Where increase in price rise is give its own twist. Not that this book is without its contradictions. Best e.g. is Omkar Goswami talks about generating employment to a huge number of people and its challenges and the next chapter talks about lack of teachers and the next one talks about lack of qualified health professionals. The chapter on energy pricing and policy was a huge disappointment. It could have done better with the facts and figures. I also wonder how and why Mr. Brahma chellany wasn’t asked to write on water and a separate chapter on dealing with China. But still this book is awesome. The best welfare for a soldier is to train him well – Erwin Rommel So get yourself this book and train yourself well for the sake of our country. My rating 4 stars out of 5
