About the Book

The dawn of the new millennium provided the right opportunity to us at the Centre for Policy Research to reflec back on the achievements and failures after independence, and also to look forward to assess where the country possibly would be by 2025, given the inherent constraints.

This book is the product of such an endeavour and is an attempt at unraveling the future contours of the country's social, economic and political stability.

It is not an attempt at trend analysis, nor is it crystal gazing. It reflects the perceptions of the best minds on respective subject areas who took a hard look at the unfolding scenarios. In essence, it encapsulates almost a life's expertise of the chapter writers.


Looking at the future is fraught with imponderables and risk. An element of uncertainty is natural. However, when the best minds are at work, one can be reasonably sure of the broad contours.

Indian and global policy makers and students of social, economic and political should find the book useful.
