Today’s Indian Express carries an interesting column by a Mumbai based management consultant. The views expressed are a stimulating counterpoint to the conventional wisdom ( that the left parties are to blame for our current woes) that one finds repeatedly expressed in the contemporary media. Having said that, I found the columnist’s claim that “the fruits of reform are now enjoyed by a broad swathe of our society, not just the middle classes” particularly difficult to swallow. The agenda that the piece marks out is ambitious. Perhaps those who are so gung-ho about market reforms in India should pay heed to the call – it certainly makes political sense.
