Mark Twain called India a place of “splendor and rags…palaces and hovels…famine and pestilence.” A century later, an award-winning team of reporters find Twain’s land of “fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty” now faces enormous challenges in its quest for superpower status. India is battling vast social inequalities, the consequences of the global financial crisis, and the terror attacks on Mumbai. What does this mean for India and the world? The producers of the new radio documentary India Rising, David Brown, Simon Marks, and Kristin McHugh, discuss the potential superpower of India.
