Hopeful, heartbreaking portrait of a Nation’s Remaking

I loved this article....beyond the obvious accusation of condescension, it is a hopeful, heartbreaking story being played out a million times over everyday in India.

My favourite quotes
"Ravindra Misal rejected tradition to become that rarity in India: A Self Made Man"

"A generation being trained rather than educated. They knew nothing about industry, art, history, literature, science"

"Their heads were filled with SWOT analysis and ways to win friends and influence people, not with the tolerance of Asoka, the poetry of Kabir, the universalism of Tagore."
