"Never been optimistic about India. But today, I’m more pessimistic" said Amartya Sen yesterday. It is because we have now even stopped accepting that there is a problem.


From Davos to New Delhi, prime minister Narendra Modi and his government are trying hard to sell the story of India’s revival. But Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen has scarcely been more pessimistic about the state of the nation. Now he might trend on twitter and get trolled, but the situation is rather grave. We have even stopped acknowledging problems and just selling it too hard. Nothing kills a bad product more than a good marketing.

Coud not agree more, the more we sell illusion, the more tougher we make it for future leaders to cover the gap between reality and illusion. It is not that other countries are perfect and they do not sell dreams to investors, but as a noisy democracy with multiple viewpoints, it would be difficult to carry on with a feel-good unless lives of people really change on the ground.
