I have said it many times before, but it is something that bears repeating.
Compare the road out of Mumbai airport with that of a Tokyo or Beijing. After multiple governments and efforts, we still haven’t managed to build even half a decent approach road, leave alone something that can be called an ‘expressway.’
The answer as to why we find ourselves in the soup we are in as a nation more than 60 years after Independence is not hard to find. But many of us don’t have the patience to think through to the root cause.
I will provide a clue tomorrow.
