India Calling

January 19th, 2011

It has been an almost universal truth since Horace Greeley first uttered the worlds "go West young man," that the West offers opportunity and fortune. Today, all that has changed. For many, particularly the children of immigrants from China and India, the decision to go East has been the road to riches. Back in 2008, New York Times and International Herald Tribune columnist Anand Giridharadas did exactly that. He headed to India, to find what he saw as the frontier of the future.

My conversation with Anand Giridharadas about his book India Calling: An Intimate Portrait of a Nation's Remaking.
