Three Indias

I stepped on Uttar Pradesh soil for the first time on Saturday. I was in Lucknow for a Friends of BJP event. As we were on our way from the airport for the event, a friend remarked: “There are not two but three Indias.”

The first India is is in which many of us live in — very urbanised metros and cities like Pune, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad. The third India is rural India (or Bharat as some call it). The second India in between consists of dozens of smaller cities and towns like Lucknow. It is an India that is not easy for us to relate to. More than just the nature of the city, it is also the mindset which differentiates people from the first and second India. Our challenge is not just to modernise the cities, but also the thinking.

  1. Hi Rajesh – When you have time do post how this middle India is different.

    Also I believe when the power of markets are unleashed in these towns modernization will happen at pace which will astonish all of us.

    The key I would say is to get educated towns
    and then the markets will follow if our politicians do not screw up.

  2. Yes there may be three or four or thousand Indias based on however you segment this one continous kaleidoscope.

    The challenge is how to leverage the small city for what it is. Even the US has small towns. The basic needs are still the same – power, roads, education, healthcare. How to network them and expose them to competition so that the middle India can produce many more Dhonis.
