Born in India and educated in Britain, Mark Tully is a citizen of two countries and two cultures, both of which have shaped his thinking and given him a unique perspective on the world today. In this thoughtful and remarkable book, he shares the formative experiences of his upbringing, his early vocation as a priest, his distinguished broadcasting career, and his fascination for India's traditions as well as its modern customs. India is changing rapidly and will soon become one of the world's most influential nations alongside China and America. In fascinating, accessible style, Tully shows the many lessons he has learned from India and—most importantly—what he believes India has yet to teach other countries about ways to deal with economic growth and poverty relief, environmental issues, education, management, and democracy. As he explains, India's journey is one towards a future in which we must draw deeply upon our spiritual and material resources and strive to find a balance in the face of uncertainty.
