Indian businessman and philanthropist Rai, together with his co-author, celebrates the emergence of India onto the global economic stage in a work that seems purposed largely towards encouraging greater US-Indian partnership and promoting the benefits of such a partnership amongst the general American population. He provides an overview of Indian economic growth, describes the "fairy tale" of the expansion of India's finance capital Mumbai (previously Bombay), discusses India's cooperation in the US "war on terror" and as a counterbalance to the "growing threat of a potentially menacing China," argues for India as better business partner than China (the Chinese believe in short-term business relationships, whereas the Indians want to form a relationship first and do business later), discusses India's efforts to overcome massive amount of poverty, and discusses some of the strategic implications of India's economic growth.
