An Indian Says Farewell to Poverty, With Jitters

An Indian Says Farewell to Poverty, With Jitters

A version of my first column from the International Herald Tribune was reprinted in this week’s New York Times.


People sometimes ask me how I feel about India’s economic development. I tell them the truth. I say I don’t know. I say I feel ambivalent about the passing of a world I knew as a child, a transition that I know is inevitable and probably even desirable. But I haven’t reconciled myself to it yet.
