Why is the suicide rate so high among students?Why is there so much corruption in India?Can’t our political parties ever work together?Does our vote make any difference at all?We love our India, but shouldn’t some things be different?

If you want to understand contemporary India, the problems that face it, and want to be a part of the solution, What Young India Wants is the book for you.
This is a new release of a previously published edition.
