About the Discussion
Published by Oxford University Press, India, 'India Tomorrow: Conversations with the Next Generation of Political Leaders' takes a deep-dive into the current domain of Indian politics. The authors interview many prominent young and dynamic politicians in India such as Priyanka Gandhi, Devendra Fadnavis, Rahul Gandhi, Milind Deora, Smriti Irani, Akhilesh Yadav, Omar Abdullah, Aditya Thakeray among others. The exercise taps into their brand of politics; local, national, and global concerns; challenges and goals, as well as the political future each of them imagines for their constituencies and the country. Through insights into these politicians and their journeys, the authors paint a picture of the course the young republic will take in decades to come.
