The year is 2021 and you’re sitting at a table in a coffee shop in Brooklyn, enjoying a cold beverage and the sights of New York City.
You have just landed a job at the same coffee shop and have the feeling that this is it.
A new job and you are the only Indian in the world.
You’ve landed your dream job and are excited to move to New York.
You’re excited to meet your colleagues and are happy to see that you are going to be able to speak the language fluently.
And you are excited about your new job.
This is your new life.
Except, the story you’ve just told yourself is not the reality.
The story you tell yourself is that your new career is just an empty shell.
Your life is full of work and you can only see the world through the lens of the person you are working with.
That is your job.
You can never see beyond that.
That, in turn, will make you miserable.
That the world you’re living in is just another empty shell that will keep you in debt for decades.
That you are never truly free of debt.
That is the mindset that India has been cultivating for over a century.
Its not a new concept.
Its been around for decades, but its only now that the rest of the world is taking notice.
In this new era of the 21st century, India is in a unique position to make the transition from the “middle class” to the “bottom class”.
And its not only because the economy is booming and there are so many new opportunities out there.
It’s also because of the fact that India is an emerging power and its only hope to truly be part of the global economy is by becoming an international power.
India is the only country that can truly claim to have the power to make itself an international superpower, not only in the fields of defence and trade, but also in terms of global governance.
But it is not without challenges.
First, India has a large and growing debt load.
The world is starting to catch up to India’s debt burden.
Secondly, India’s economy is in the midst of a financial crisis.
Thirdly, India itself is in turmoil.
And fourthly, despite a huge rise in the number of millionaires in the last few years, the country’s wealth inequality is still at an all-time high.
The challenge for India is to find a way to turn its fortunes around.
In the next few weeks, I will be interviewing some of the key players in this new India.
First, a word about the interview.
In the next week, I’ll be interviewing the leaders of the Indian private sector, including the top executives of banks, insurance companies and real estate companies.
The interview will take place in New York at the Marriott Marquis, a hotel near the World Trade Center.
I’ll ask them to talk about the state of the economy, how they’re feeling about the financial crisis and how they think India can make the next step in the transformation of its economy.
Afterwards, I’m going to discuss with the CEOs of the countrys largest private companies about the challenges they face and how India can move forward.
The question of whether India is really a “middle-class” country.
India’s middle class is the one that is often overlooked in discussions of India’s transformation into an international player.
But the country is not alone.
For centuries, India was the most unequal country in the entire world.
India is the most indebted country in history, with the country having a GDP per capita of less than $12,000 in the 1950s.
India has also been an engine of economic growth.
In 1970, India had a gross domestic product (GDP) per capita only marginally higher than the United States of America (US) at $13,921.
The year 2000 saw India’s GDP increase by about 20% to $30,000.
This growth was not a fluke.
For a country with a GDP that low, the growth was a massive achievement for a country that had never before seen the rise of a country so large.
India’s massive economic growth has been the product of a unique set of factors that are largely invisible to many outside India.
First of all, India still does not have a functioning public finance system.
And second, India does not allow its citizens to be taxed.
This means that the top 1% of the population in India has the biggest share of wealth in the country.
But even with this massive wealth gap, the rich have managed to enjoy a huge share of the fruits of India economic success.
In fact, a report from the International Monetary Fund showed that in 2012, the richest one percent of the Indians in the Indian society received 77% of all of Indias economic gains.
But this inequality has also created an
