India's demographic dividend could turn to nightmare,if its leaders fail @nytimes #journalist Author @SominiSengupta

The End of Karma a book by Ex-Delhi & Dakar bureau chief of The New York Times and a quintessential bongo gal Somini Sengupta tells the stories of unprecedented youth surge through the lens of young Indians, hungry and hopeful and keen to write their own destinies. A daughter of the slums who wants to protect other daughters of the slums, a peasant woman who escapes the barren hinterland, a couple who follow their hearts over the dictates of caste - driven by aspiration—and thwarted at every step by state and society—India's young are making new demands on India’s democracy.
