About Book
India gained independence from its colonial masters in 1947 and ever since then, its path to a better future has been riddled with obstacles. John Elliott tries to understand how India arrived at such a situation. Implosion: India's Tryst With Reality is India's journey through those obstacles in various ways leading to different results. John Elliott uses his vast experience as a political and business correspondent to examine how corruption now plagues almost every aspect of Indian life. He takes us through the Nehru-Gandhi years and analyses how those times influenced the present. The book scrutinises the impact of liberalisation and then builds up on the modern day unrest that exists amongst common Indians over corruption, land acquisition, rape and other issues. The author tries to uncover the secrets held in the ‘M Document', the blueprint for the 1991 reforms. The book also throws light on the foreign policies of governments and the issues afflicting the defense forces of the country. At the center of the issues, the author says, lies a poor attitude towards most problems. The hurry to get things done and a widespread disregard for rules is rotting the Indian society and its politics from within, he contends.
