Description

India’s Road to Transformation: Why Leadership Matters describes the critical role of political leadership in India which began post-independence until this present age.

Since India’s independence from Britain in 1947, it has been governed by 14 prime ministers, some of whom contributed immensely to its socio-economic development than others. The book shows how using Mahatma Gandhi’s unifying philosophy to rally all Indian people together, great prime ministers such as Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Manmohan Singh, and now Narendra Modi have channeled their energy, power, and political influence to significantly improve the livelihood of the Indian people through their economic and social transformative agendas.

India’s Road to Transformation: Why Leadership Matters is not your typical history book about India; it is a well-researched and neatly documented role of leadership for India’s development, joining the historical dots of socio-economic successes achieved by each predominant Indian government since 1947.

Congratulations to Jagdish Sheth and Gyanendra Singh for their moving story of India’s recent transformation. In my previous talks in India, I would raise the question “When will the Indian Tiger wake up?” Surely, India’s leaders must have been miffed seeing the rapid economic rise of its neighbors such as China, Vietnam, South Korea, Singapore, and Indonesia. Now India can add its name because its economic engine has turned on, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Much more has to be done! All the needed reforms and steps are made clear in this brilliant analysis of India’s ongoing transformation.
