"Keep the Change: India's Past, Present and Future"
with Bachi Karkaria, Columnist, Times of India
India burst out of socialism's straitjacket with the economic liberalization of 1992. And the new millennium has witnessed incredible change. The making and spending of money is no longer guilt-edged, and Indians are able to fulfil aspirations in ways undreamt of for centuries. The young are predictably the hungriest, but it is women who have seized the moment and made amazing strides in one generation – across class and geographies. But entrenched patriarchy does not give up its power easily, and the fault-lines are as manifest as the progress. Bachi Karkaria, who has observed, documented and, to a degree, effected social change as a senior journalist with the influential Times of India, encapsulates the excitement and the challenge of India, 2017.
