Ramachandra Guha on why India cannot become a superpower

“There was a young man who sold solar-powered lamps in Chitradurga that solved the lighting problems of small market places. An entrepreneur had developed a mobile phone that provided information to farmers about mandi prices of commodities. There was an IT professional from Silicon Valley who had returned home to computerise land records in Karnataka. They were all people who were doing unusual, challenging work, but were exasperated. And the source of their exasperation was the same — the government of India.”
