On Jun 20, 2013
|Trivandrum: Member of Parliament from Trivandrum and Minister of state for Human Resource Development Dr. Shashi Tharoor announced the launch of the book 'India – The Future is now', written by young MPs and edited by himself. The Kerala Governor Nikhil Kumar released the book, published by Wisdom Tree, here on a function at Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday.
The book chronicles not only the nation’s youthful aspirations, but also the parliamentarian’s zeal in chalking out a path of development that leads to equitable growth. Sudhir Tailang has contributed cartoons for the book.
Shashi Tharoor also steered a panel discussion on ‘the road map for India’ with several young Kerala MLAs including Hibi Eden , P C Vishnunath , Shafi Parambil, and T V Rajesh on the occasion.
“This is an extraordinary effort by a dozen young MPs to chart out a future course for our country. Their ideas deserve attention and engagement as India faces up to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century,” said Dr. Tharoor, commenting on the book.
