I am a first-generation entrepreneur, a child of India’s economic liberalisation in the early 1990s. I founded my first company, Network18, then, which flourished. But by the time I launched my second innings, with The Quint, those reforms had begun to sputter. To revive India’s animal spirits, we now need to rethink our geo-economic thrust, at home and abroad.
It’s all here in my latest book, Super Century: What India Must Do To Rise By 2050.
