'The world should look at India as a cerebral courtesan!'

April 30, 2008
How do you want the world to look at India?

If you had asked me this question 10 years ago, I would have said an enchantress. Now, I would say a cerebral courtesan. The enchantment continues. I find India very attractive, enticing and seductive. But we have also moved away from just the exotic imaging of India being beautiful and coulourful and all the cliches the West likes to associate with India, like snake-charmers and tigers, the Taj Mahal, our beautiful women... I think we've quantum-leaped beyond something so quaint. We've proved our mettle in business and technology. We’ve become an economic powerhouse. So why don't we focus equally on our brainpower?
