With globalization, English has become an economic necessity and Indians have realized that they have the 'English advantage' over many other countries like China and Japan. India has shed its colonial complexes towards English and has come to terms with the language; Indians have separated the English language from the English. The Story of English in India presents historical facts in a socio-cultural framework. The book is a must for all teachers and students of English; it will be useful for all those interested in the politics of language and education in India. Key issues discussed: - Are we indebted to the British for introducing English in India? - What was the role of English during India's struggle for freedom? - Has English united India? - Has English divided India into two - the English knowing classes who govern and the non-English knowing masses who are governed? - Will English ever become an Indian tongue spoken in the great Indian language bazaar? - What will be the future of major Indian languages in the wake of the English onslaught? Will it end in linguistic imperialism and cultural colonialism?

This book discusses the role historical events played in determining the pattern of growth of Indian manufacturing. Two important historical events significantly influenced the course of Indian manufacturing from the 15th century AD. The first was the arrival of European merchants via sea route pioneered by Vasco-da-Gamma in 1498 and the other was the dawn of the Mughal Empire in 1526. The book explores how these two events provided the appropriate stimulus for the emergence of traditional flexible manufacturing in India and how they played a vital role in the pattern of growth of the Indian manufacturing: The Mughal Empire created an integrated economy of continental size whereas European trading companies expanded the commercial connectivity of the Indian economy and South East Asia. It further investigates how the circumstances created by the colonial administration, factor endowment and market conditions created the complex forms of manufacturing enterprises that India inherited at the time of independence. It is a valuable resource for students of history, economic history, business history and the history of technology.

Yet, years later, when e-commerce was exploding in India-despite enjoying first-mover advantage-Indiaplaza shut down. What went wrong? Lack of funding? Wrong strategies? Or was it 'something else'? For the first time ever, Vaitheeswaran reveals that it was indeed something else-a set of inexplicable events that destroyed what could have been a profitable business (an extreme rarity among technology start-ups).

Was soccer the unique Indian answer to the imperial charge of effeminacy held against the educated Indian male in the late nineteenth century? Was Mohun Bagan's victory in 1911, a triumph of Indian nationalism? Is there a significant relationship between football, politics and economics in colonial and post-colonial India? Cricket is undoubtedly what moves the majority of the subcontinent, but isn't there a niche that tracks and lives football in ways that impact social attitudes and divisions even today? These are some of the questions that the authors, avid football watchers and sports historians, set out to explore five years ago, and the result of their enquiries is this fascinating account of Indian football. Elegantly written and exhaustively researched, right down to obscure episodes and previously unavailable data on games long forgotten, Goalless constitutes the first serious attempt to document India's football history. kicked a football back to a group of British soldiers at the Maidan in Calcutta, through the ups and downs of football administration and match management in the Santosh Trophy, to an analysis of the game as it is played in present-day Jammu and Kashmir in an atmosphere that screams violence.

This book assesses India's role as a major power in the Indian Ocean. Many see the Indian Ocean as naturally falling within India's sphere of influence but, as this book demonstrates, India has a long way to go before it could achieve regional dominance. The book outlines the development of Indian thinking on its role in the Indian Ocean and examines India's strategic relationships in the region, including with maritime South Asia, the Indian Ocean islands, East Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Australia. The book then discusses India's ambivalent relationship with the United States and explores its attitude towards China's growing power in the Indian Ocean. It concludes by discussing the region's evolving strategic order - does India have what it takes to become the leading power in the region?

By 2018, India will be home to 3.58 lakh millionaires, doubling its tally from 1.5 lakh in 2013. In a country where risk is fast proving to be its own reward, a new cadre of wealth creators is building large fortunes at a breakneck pace. Not only do their successes mirror a bolder nation, they reflect new attitudes to generating, managing and leveraging wealth in a changing India. Gold biscuits, cash stuffed in mattresses and swathes of land are passé; aspirational India is no longer at the mercy of old conduits to more wealth. India is creating wealth differently and faster than any other economy in the world. This book chronicles the story of the country's new wealthy and the people helping them manage these riches. It also traces the journey of a young wealth management company that has in less than a decade become an industry frontrunner by building a business catering to the new wealthy. In a post-2008 world, the story of IIFL Wealth and its three founders is also a story of entrepreneurial dynamism in India. Much like the clients they service, these three are also riding a perfect storm of opportunity.
