Before the global financial meltdown of 2008, India's economy was thriving and its GDP growth was cruising at an impressive 8.8 per cent. In the decade that followed, each time the country's economy came close to returning to that growth trajectory, political events knocked it off course. India is not the star it was in 2008 and in effect, the 'India growth story' has devolved into 'growth without a story'. The Lost Decade authored by Puja Mehra tells the story of the slide and examines the political context in which the Indian economy failed to recover lost momentum.
