I helped Vijay Kelkar in drafting of two lectures, which actually add up to an interesting integrated view of India:
- The first was the Narayanan Oration (April 2004) at the Australian National University: India: On the growth turnpike.
- The second was the Gadgil Memorial Lecture in October 2005: India's economic future: Moving beyond State Capitalism.
They add up to interesting reading. The first looks back and thinks of deeper forces, the second looks forward at what is to be done. A slightly related version of the key ideas of the first appeared in Indian Express on Diwali day of 2003. The latter has been written up a bit. Today Andy Mukherjee linked up to it in his column.
