About the book

India may widely be acknowledged as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, but how can this vast, diverse and heavily populated nation sustain growth prospects? Game India offers a decisive answer. Through chapters, at once ambitious and engaging, it outlines seven key unrealised opportunities India can pursue to remain a leading player on the world economic highway: solar power; an enviable coastline and waterways; milk; agriculture; a huge population that, among other things, can yield methane; innovation; and unleashing human potential through education, justice and health. In studying these seven strategic advantages, the book explores what has been done (or not done) to exploit them, what potential they hold out for people, and how they could redefine the game for India.
