The book review has to be done with using the theories and methods learned by us in class. To understand the subject better and to improve our application as well as critical analyzing ability we have selected “India Grows at Night” written  by Mr. Gurcharan Das. It is a non-Fiction category book which analyzes the post-independence growth of India. In this book, author tries to critically analyze the reasons why India is still struggling to be a developing nation. He tries to point out the strengths as well as weakness of the country and the issues which needs to be tackled for a holistic growth. Mr. Gurcharan Das is one of the few corporate leader turned writer. At helm of his career he was the CEO of Procter & Gamble India and VP of Procter & Gamble Far East. After a 30 year long career in business he took an early retirement to be a full time writer. “India Unbound”, “Difficulty of Being good” etc are few of his best sellers. India Grows at Night: A liberal case for a strong nation is the latest addition to his crown jewel. In this book author starts with comparing India‟s growth as a gr  owth happened during Night. Here he is trying to bring to our attention that the growth in India happens when government is not involved in it. In India government acts as a preventer of growth due to the “license Raj”,  bribery and red tape delays. The book gives insight to how the entrepreneurs in India had to find ingenious way to tackle the political clout to start up a business. It takes us to the 1950s when the “License Raj” was at the peak with Indira Gandhi as our prime minister. The book shows the  personality traits of our leaders who succeeded in different sectors but failed miserably in understanding the importance of economic growth and development. Through various chapters the author takes us to the mentality through which India as a whole changed during past 60-70 years. In between the author brings up examples from history to show the true leadership skills and how different leaders acted in different times and situations. The book portrays the vivid picture of India and neighbor countries‟ growth so far and where the world stands in terms of infrastructure, politics, development, progress etc. On the basis of this analysis the author suggests few detailed suggestions how to tackle the existing problems. Suggestions are made to make the government more accountable and produce result. Author tries to bring out the awakening of middle class people against the corruption in India and other Middle East countries. He suggests that the citizens of developing countries are getting aware of their rights and started demanding accountability and transparency from the government and other organizations. The author concludes the book on a positive note saying that the Indian people are awakening and expects their leaders to be authentic and demands results from them. This has created a  better scenario in Indian politics and eventually changed the outlook of Indians. This change has  brought drastic changes in growth of country. With proper regulation of government officials and  prevention of corruption author is confident in the future of India.    2     I   n    d    i   a    G   r   o   w   s   a   t    N    i   g    h   t    |    8    /   5    /   2   0   1   3   OBJECTIVES    To understand and analyze the varied pattern of human behavior    To develop the ability to draw inferences with respect to work behavior and relate it to the concepts being studied in the course „Individual Dynamics and Leadership‟ in the  present Trimester METHOD OF STUDY As part of the assignment we have chosen the book India grows at night: A liberal case for a strong nation.
