The book is a collection of Rajiv Kumar’s widely read columns in some of India’s leading newspapers over the last two years. The volume includes an introduction that provides a sharp and candid insight into multiple policy failures of the UPA II government and lays out the reform agenda for the incoming BJP government. The articles provide an incisive analysis of India’s turbulent economic journey over the last three years as the country lost both its policy direction and economic momentum. The short essays provide a rare ringside view of policymaking and all its frailties.
