India emerging as a land of opportunities

Press Trust of India

India is emerging as a land of opportunity despite insurmountable challenges faced by the country and its success now depends on how it overcomes them, a new book by an India-born author said.

"If India just develops and pollutes the environment, thinking we'll clean this up later, it will become unlivable.

If India just creates a bunch of billionaires, thinking we'll worry about the poor later, it will degenerate into chaos," New York-based author Mira Kamdar said in her new book 'Planet India'.

Describing India as the ‘new America’-- a land of opportunity-- she said "The vibe is, anything is possible. In India you have a multicultural, multi-religious democracy in a developing country that is an open and free society that has embraced capitalism. It's exciting and scary to think of the possibilities of that."

"It has to figure out how to make development equitable and sustainable now. The theme is opportunity in adversity."

The Indian diaspora, 20 million people living primarily in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia, has a role to play forge partnerships with entrepreneurs and the government.

There are two Indias, Kamdar suggests in her book.
