About the Author
For many years Ruchir Sharma's writing has drawn on his travels as a global investor, which take him to a different emerging nation every month. Now a contributing writer at the New York Times, his columns
and essays have appeared in Foreign Affairs, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, The Times of India, and many other publications, both global and Indian. His earlier books, The Rise and Fall of Nations
(2016) and Breakout Nations (2012), both became international bestsellers. In Democracy on the Road, Ruchir brings readers along on his travels through India, where he follows at least one big election every year.

I expected discerning fundamental changes happening in Indian polity but all I got was a travelogue with uppity Lutyen elite who made the grudging journey through muddy roads and stayed in stained motels.
The coterie of sycophantic intellectuals that they encouraged of course felt nervous by Modi's non corrupt anti nepotism progovernance approach.
India has suffered more at the biased accounts given by these pseudo secular intellectuals than by any politicians
Not worth reading.
