From the Publisher

I also have no political aspirations in the foreseeable future, so that reduces doubt about my selfish interests. I make enough money as a motivational speaker and I am not dependant on political patronage. This credibility is priceless in today’s times. That, combined with reach, can make a significant impact on public opinion. And that is where, I think, my writings can be most influential.

What Young India Wants

While this book covers a wide range of topics, there are some guidelines or common themes I follow. I either comment on the system or on society. The system changes with better policies. Society changes with better values. I have a bias towards youth-based issues, as most of India is young. Corruption, education, secularism are the topics I focus on the most. And even though some people may find it preposterous, I often propose solutions in my writings. That is because if I offer no solutions, then all I am doing is ranting. We must always suggest a way out, however simplistic it may be. It is a more positive attitude towards life.

I believe India has major problems. However, I also believe they can be fixed.
