Indeed, there is a huge famine breaking out all over India today, an incredible hunger. But it is not for food. It is a hunger for opportunity that has been pent up like volcanic lava under four decades of socialism, and it’s now just bursting out with India’s young generation.

And to think I got scolded for not cleaning up his redundancies and malapropisms in the interview text I edited. Isn’t that’s what his readers have come to expect? Don’t we want to show the beauty of that fine mind at work in the white-hot heat of inspiration?
