As India turns 73 this week, we look at the challenges and opportunities ahead for the nation. We’re joined by Karan Bhasin (Researcher, Economist), Ashutosh Muglikar (“Gareebon ka Economist”), and Aashish Chandorkar (Author, Columnist) to discuss the current state of the Economy, Culture, and Politics in India and what they are optimistic for going forward. In a free wheeling conversation, Karan, Ashu, and Aashish cover the structural reforms (GST, Banking reform, etc.) and infrastructure development that will improve productivity, digital access and the JAM (Jan Dhan - Aadhaar - Mobile) trinity that will help capitalize on the demographic dividend, the breaking away from the Nehruvian state and the collective awakening of a civilizational ethos, the participative and robust political democracy which will help mobilize change with greater speed, and much more.
