From the Publisher"Mira Kamdar takes the seemingly endless historical and cultural cross currents of India and weaves them together into a story that bears on the whole world. She combines her admiration and affection for India and its people with a keen eye for its contradictory impulses, taking readers deep inside an India that is fighting for modernity on its own terms, but also changing, for good and ill, in response to dynamics beyond its control. Indians, both within and outside their country, are changing the fates of people everywhere. Planet India is our planet." — Ted Fishman, author of China Inc.
"Planet India could become one of the most discussed books of the year. Kamdar's book is differenct from other similar themed books—it throws a challenge to the government, business leaders, voluntary organizations and ordinary citizens,and non-resident Indians, to make the Indian Success story meaningful even to the poorest of its citizens." — India Abroad
"This book is an absolute MUST read. It's by far the best book on India and globalization to date and on top of that it's a fun read." — Clyde Prestowitz, author of Rogue Nation and Three Billion New Capitalists
"This briskly written, vivid account shows how that subcontinental country's films, technology, and service industries have made India an ever-growing presence on the American scene." — Atlantic Monthly
"Planet India is a worthy addition to the burgeoning shelf of serious books about 21st century India." — Shashi Tharoor, Times of India
