Nice article from Times of London on India

Here is a great posting by Jeevan Deol, a lecturer in South Asian History at Oxford, who contrasts the high points of India today (the moon launch, an Indian winning the Booker prize, the cricket team beating Australia, and the high growth rate) with its serious problems (increasing inequality, overwhelming poverty, gender imbalances, lack of rural opportunities, woeful infrastructure, disappearing water, and being a member of a scary neighborhood). His conclusion is great:
"India's moment may well be here: the challenge will be to make it last." Very well put.
