It is 2030. India is among the world’s top three economies. All Indians use the cloud, artificial intelligence and automated learning to either do their job or get their job done. All Indians have access to quality jobs, better healthcare and skill-based education. Technology and human beings coexist in a mutually beneficial ecosystem. This reality is possible. It is within reach. With Bridgital. In this groundbreaking book, the chairman of Tata Sons, N. Chandrasekaran presents a powerful vision for the future. To the coming disruption of artificial intelligence, he proposes an ingenious solution, where India is perfectly positioned to pave a unique path from the rest of the world. Instead of accepting AI as an inevitable replacement for human labour, India can use it as an aid; instead of taking them away, AI can generate jobs. Chandrasekaran and his co-author, Roopa Purushothaman, survey the country for inspirational stories of resilience and determination, and seek the ideal way to bring Indians closer to their dreams. Through on-ground application of the dynamic technology called ‘Bridgital’, they show how Indians can be connected across the country, creating a network of services to be delivered where they are most required. This brilliant, cutting-edge solution will address India’s biggest challenges by bridging the huge chasm between rural and urban communities, the different levels of education and medical access, and between aspirations and achievement. From healthcare to education to business, the model can be applied in various sectors, and, by a conservative estimate, it can create and impact 30 million jobs by 2025. One of the country’s foremost industry leaders and pioneers, N. Chandrasekaran brings his expertise of over thirty years with the Tata Group to offer a blueprint for building a prosperous India, where everyone is included in the growth story.

A read to make you think This was a very inciteful book. It paints a picture of a country modernizing with mature technology. It also makes one think about the post-peak countries in the western world. The best book I read this year!

The book offers visionary yet realistic solutions on how to harness the potential and create prosperity for millions of Indians through the power of technology, talent and inclusive economics.

Quite insightful, well presented – a must read! The book delivers on the hat trick of creating more meaningful jobs, bringing in efficiencies and at the same time reduce costs. Bridgital is a great and unique concept to realize an India of 2030 where we have better jobs, better access to healthcare.
