‘The book raises some excellent questions... India is an open tolerant country. So why does liberalism not flourish there? Mr Das insists that liberal ideas offer the clearest answer to many of India’s woes. Corruption, for example, will not be beaten with a big, new authoritarian bureaucracy, as anti-graft protesters want. Instead discretionary powers must be wrested from dodgy bureaucrats and politicians, the state made smaller, and markets allowed, openly and freely... Mr Das’s celebration of liberalism is admirable.’
--The Economist (Review of India Grows at Night, 10 Nov 2012)
"Informative, entertaining, and basically correct about India's need to embrace capitalism more wholeheartedly, for all the costs and risks."
- The Economist, London (Extract of a book review of India Unbound, February 17, 2001)
