Raghav Bahl’s latest book Super Century: What India Must Do to Rise by 2050 is now out in book stores.

In Super Century, Raghav Bahl offers a cogent and candid assessment of how we got where we are and a clear blueprint of what we need to do, both at home and in the world, to fulfil our promise going forward.

What is it about the Indian psyche that makes us so incapable of fulfilling our promise as a nation? Why are we so averse to risk, resigned to mediocrity and mired in a collective lack of confidence? India has so much potential but seems forever stuck on the brink of actualization, unable to muster the political will and geo-economic force to clear the final bar. The stakes are higher than ever, and India’s moment is now.

But where should we turn first- to our troubles at home, or to the global challenges of terrorism, tyranny, ethnic conflict, mass migration, civil war, and climate change? The fact is, India's foreign and domestic agendas are inextricably intertwined, and neither can advance without the other.

They must be addressed simultaneously if we are to thrive as a nation; the world is moving too fast to allow us to deal with one set of problems before moving on to the next. We simply don’t have that kind of time, he writes. 

This is the third book in a series of three, including Superpower? and Super Economies: America, India, China & The Future Of The World.
