The book explores the journey of India since ancient times to the projected future in the next few decades with an economic lens. It attempts to bust the widely held belief about India being an extremely poor and deprived nation. Using data as evidence, it goes on to prove that the recent image of this helplessness is just a blip in the curve. The book uses econometric models to demonstrate how this imminent glory is expected to be restored in the next few decades as the world rebalances and what is due to the eastern world in general and India in particular is rightfully returned. The enquiry looks at the data rather than the narrative.
