India Reborn India today has a middle class that is bigger than the total population of the United States, yet half her children go to bed hungry. While the Indian economic miracle powers on, corruption, pollution, water shortages, inequity, ethnic and religious strife, and cold war with Pakistan cloud the future. As India is poised to become the third biggest economy in the world and play a stronger role in international politics, this series will consider the challenges facing the next superpower.
