Book Name: Dreamers: How Young Indians Are Changing Their World
By Snigdha Poonam
More than half of India is under the age of 25 and the country is set to have the youngest population in the world by 2021. But India’s millennials are nothing like their counterparts in the West.
In a world that’s marked by technological advancement and unprecedented connectivity, in a country that’s increasingly characterized by political power, ambition, and access, in an economy that appears to be breaking down the barriers to wealth that existed for every previous era, this is a generation that cannot – will not – be defined on anything but their own terms. They are wealth-chasers, attention-seekers, power-trappers, fame-hunters. They are the dreamers.
Snigdha Poonam’s remarkable cultural study of the unlikeliest of fortune-hawkers travels through the small towns of northern India to investigate the phenomenon that is India’s Generation Y. From starstruck strivers to masterly swindlers, From dubious entrepreneurs to political aspirants, she travels – in cars and trucks, on carts and buses – through the India’s badlands to uncover a theatre of toxic masculinity, spirited ambition and a kind of hunger for change that is bound to drive the future of our country. These young Indians are not just changing their world – they’re changing yours.
