India Revisited

This interview focuses on the successes and failures of post-Independence India. Beginning with an evaluation of the economy, which has become a mix of capitalism and communism, it also tries to assess whether Nehru and Gandhi's dreams of giving a moral and spiritual basis to the objectives of the country came true or not. J.C. Kapoor then moves on to share his thoughts on the role of the Indian élite and the consumerist attitude in India, and explains his comparison of the operative paradigm of armament-protected consumerism to monoculturalism and monopowerism.

Keywords:   post-Independence India, economy, capitalism, communism, J.C. Kapoor, Indian élite, consumerist attitude, armament-protected consumerism, monoculturalism, monopowerism
