Nandan Nilekani is the co-founder of Infosys, an active bureaucrat and prime contributor of ADHAR CARD. The book generalized India post-independence, its personality and the behavior of different regions. Most of the discussion is on Ideas in progress like better schools, better cities, and roads. Ideas in controversy like economic and labor reforms.
Interesting contexts include a contradiction that India went through like dealing English, fear of technology, and how Indians overcome.
Nilekani explained the birth of IT and how it progressed to reached the pinnacle of the money-making machine.
It's a pearl of knowledge to understand India as a growing superpower. I believe the big players like TATAS, Ambanis, Bhargava, Birlas, Kirloskars perceive India in a completely different perspective. Politicians who understand this country better than anyone else. 
This work is one such approach.
