'It must be read by every Indian.' - Gurcharan Das, author of 'India Unbound'
'Breaking Free of Nehru: Let's Unleash India' is an energetic and visionary study of freedom in contemporary India. Sanjeev Sabhlok begins by asking why India wanted independence in the first place – namely, to achieve individual freedom. He then asks whether India is truly free today. Sabhlok analyses the factors that are constricting India's freedom and causing rampant corruption and blatant inefficiency in Indian governments, and Nehruvian socialism becomes the prime suspect. This study ultimately recommends that India should break free of Nehru's legacy of socialism, and at the same time should significantly strengthen Nehru's legacy of democracy. The study then postulates a set of policies of freedom whose proper implementation will clean up India's abject poverty. Sabhlok's analysis and research makes use of a repertoire of knowledge and experience that included working for 25 years in governments in India and Australia.
