Description

A Goan scholar based in Portugal takes a close look at India and comes up with optimistic predictions of the situation here. For him, it is far from the stereotyped land of abject poverty, snake charmers, holy cows or half-clad sadhus lost in meditation. He sees India as a “land of learning, of knowledge applied to life…” He sees the intellectual capacity and performance of the Indian people as producing quick results. Monteiro unravels what he calls the “economic miracle in a country of entrepreneurs”. Particularly interesting are his studies on Indian telecom, the Tata and Bharti sector, AMUL and the Gujarat Milk Co-operative, private university education in the shape of Manipal University, healthcare in India offered through the private hospitals network. He finds it worth taking a close look at Dr Devi Shetty and the “revolution in healthcare” as also the amazing Aravind Eye Hospital experiment in taking top class eye care to the poor of rural India at very affordable rates.
