Do Believe the hype - Thomas Friedman in NYT

It is a nice, breezy read. While I often find Friedman to be too optimistic when it comes to China, India, some of the points he makes here are very compelling. The optimism I see in India is something I haven't seen in many places - the excitement, pace of change is palpable. If I sound contradicting , here are my views in a nutshell : I am extremely optimistic about Indians - they will work wonders in the next few decades but still continue to be cautious about India, thanks to our inefficient bureaucracy and widespread corruption.
