Podcast The Seen and the Unseen

India’s Lost Decade

This is Episode 116 of The Seen and the Unseen, the weekly podcast hosted by Amit Varma. 

In 2008, India was growing at 8.8% and was described as a miracle economy. It all went downhill in the next 10 years. Puja Mehra, author of The Lost Decade, joins Amit Varma in episode 116 of The Seen and the Unseen to describe the random events, political imperatives and human dramas that collided to bring us to the brink of a crisis.
