Remaking India
Remaking India is an impassioned critique of India's current economic and social situation and argues for a better way to create inclusive development and growth. Arun Maira, one of India's leading business consultants and thinkers, applies the principles of `scenario thinking` and the `learning field` to identify some key obstacles to India`s holistic growth. Deftly weaving memoir with history, this book discusses India`s journey from its birth as a nation, to its more recent liberalized phase. The author examines a broad canvas of concerns, and emphasizes that unless India`s growth percolates to its poor and underprivileged we will have a divided and unequal society and nation. He highlights some key steps that are needed to put India on the appropriate growth trajectory. He stresses that businesses must look beyond profits and emphasizes the critical need for collaboration between business and government for nation building, and, presents a conceptual roadmap for India`s future, suited to its diverse social, economic and cultural needs.

India Becoming
A New Republic Editors' and Writers' Pick 2012 A New Yorker Contributors' Pick 2012 A portrait of incredible change and economic development, of social and national transformation told through individual lives The son of an Indian father and an American mother, Akash Kapur spent his formative years in India and his early adulthood in the United States. In 2003, he returned to his birth country for good, eager to be part of its exciting growth and modernization. What he found was a nation even more transformed than he had imagined, where the changes were fundamentally altering Indian society, for better and sometimes for worse. To further understand these changes, he sought out the Indians experiencing them firsthand. The result is a rich tapestry of lives being altered by economic development, and a fascinating insider's look at many of the most important forces shaping our world today. Much has been written about the rise of Asia and a rebalancing of the global economy, but rarely does one encounter these big stories with the level of nuance and detail that Kapur gives us in India Becoming. Among the characters we meet are a broker of cows who must adapt his trade to a modernizing economy; a female call center employee whose relatives worry about her values in the city; a feudal landowner who must accept that he will not pass his way of life down to his children; and a career woman who wishes she could "outsource" having a baby. Through these stories and many others, Kapur provides a fuller understanding of the complexity and often contradictory nature of modern India. India Becoming is particularly noteworthy for its emphasis on rural India-a region often neglected in writing about the country, though 70 percent of the population still lives there. In scenes reminiscent of R. K. Narayan's classic works on the Indian countryside, Kapur builds intimate portraits of farmers, fishermen, and entire villages whose ancient ways of life are crumbling, giving way to an uncertain future that is at once frightening and full of promise. Kapur himself grew up in rural India; his descriptions of change and modernization are infused with a profound-at times deeply poignant- firsthand understanding of the loss that must accompany all development and progress. India Becoming is essential reading for anyone interested in our changing world and the newly emerging global order. It is a riveting narrative that puts the personal into a broad, relevant and revelational context.

La India
In this bold, enlightening, and readable study, psychoanalyst Sudhir Kakar and anthropologist Katharina Kakar investigate the nature of "Indian-ness," that sense of unity that underlies modern India's tremendous diversity, beyond ethnic or social differences. Focusing on what constitutes a common Indian identity, the authors examine in detail the complex hierarchical organization of Indian social life, based on the caste system; strong familial ties, founded upon the concept of extended family; the ayurvedic influence on health and body image; the modest attitude toward sex and marriage; the role of women in society; and the concept of the "other," especially as it applies to Hindu-Muslim relations. Drawing upon three decades of research and sources as varied as the Mahabharata, the Kama Sutra, the writings of Gandhi, Bollywood movies, and popular folklore, the Kakars have created here a rich and colorful portrait of Indian society. En este sólido, esclarecedor y ameno estudio, el psicoanalista Sudhir Kakar y la antropóloga Katharina Kakar investigan la naturaleza de la "indianidad," esa unidad que subyace en la gran diversidad de la India moderna, más allá de las diferencias étnicas o sociales. Centrándose en lo que constituye una común identidad india, los autores examinen en detalle el complejo mundo jerárquico de las relaciones sociales indias, basado en la institución de la casta; la particular concepción de los vínculos familiares, derivada de la idea de familia extensa; la influencia del ayurveda en la imagen del cuerpo humano y la salud; la pudorosa actitud hacia el sexo y el matrimonio; el papel de la mujer en la sociedad; y la percepción del "otro," con especial énfasis en el conflicto hindú-musulmán. Apoyados en tres décadas de investigación y fuentes tan variadas como el Mahabharata, el Kamasutra, los escritos de Gandhi, las películas de Bollywood y el folclore popular, los Kakar han creado con esta obra un riquísimo y cromático retrato de la sociedad india.

Inside India
First published in 1937, this book presents the author's personal account of India. The author, a Turkish writer and novelist, visited the region in 1935 and gained insights into the history and sociology of the country. Based on her experiences, Halid Edib documents significant contemporary events which shaped the history of India at the time, including the HinduMuslim separatism and the freedom movement led by Mahatma Gandhi. Her work is by far the most eloquent account of Indian society and politics in the 1930s. Here she details her travel to several regions such as Aligarh, Lahore, Calcutta, Peshawar, Lucknow, Bombay, and Hyderabad, as well as her meetings with many people from different walks of life. She takes a look at Indian nationalism, identifies its strengths and weaknesses, describes its encounters with colonialism, and analyses the rising tide of Muslim nationalism. With scholarly finesse, she reveals the Indian personality of Muslims in India and shows a favourable disposition towards the perspective of the Congress Muslims.

Reengineering India
The march towards a new India' began with its entry onto the global stage as a rising economic power, impelled by liberalization policies and the forces of globalization. The success of India's information technology (IT) industry symbolizes these larger developments, yet we lack a critical understanding of the wider social and cultural reverberations of this phenomenon. Reengineering India explores India's post-liberalization transformation through the lens of the software industry.This book views the IT industry as a key site where new identities, aspirations and social imaginaries are being created and circulated. It examines the origins and organization of software capital, the production of the Indian IT workforce, the introduction of new forms of work and management and the connections between software and the new' middle class. The author argues that the software industry has been central to India's post-liberalization refashioning, yet it remains deeply embedded in older structures of inequality and modes of accumulation. An anthropological account of the relationship between work, class, capital and culture in India's new economy, this book is essential reading for thinking about the future of the post-IT revolution nation.
