I wrote RecastingIndia because I strongly felt that the entrepreneurial nature of the Indian people, and indeed of Indian history, was sorely missing in our conversation. Where was the mention of people like Dwarkanath Tagore or Bhimji Parekh or even the House of Jagat Seth? And where was the focus of millions of entrepreneurs who were fighting everything, from terrorists in Kashmir to caste and social stigma, like among domestic workers and manual scavengers? Why is the narrative of these solution-makers absent from our public conversation? This book hopes to bring that conversation back to the forefront of public discourse in India.
