How deep does the river of corruption run in India? Can a country truly evolve if its citizens relentlessly pursue economic growth regardless of social consequences?

To India, with Tough Love is a thought provoking book that portrays a slice of India often overlooked by mainstream media. Jaya Kamlani’s colorful narrative of her personal journey through the villages and city slums brings a greater human understanding to social issues and the impact of globalization.

Her extensive research shows how economic development and widespread corruption have fanned the flames of India’s cardinal sins -- toxic environment, poor sanitation, farmer suicides, caste apartheid, extreme poverty, injustice to women, and child exploitation.

The book covers communism in India that had spread its wings to over 60 percent of the country in the new millennium. It also covers the agricultural disputes and the turbulent trade relations between America and India.

Although the book addresses major issues of India, it also provides a host of solutions in many areas. It concludes with inspiring examples of social entrepreneurs who are driving change in India.

While addressing the root causes of social injustice, the author acknowledges that many of these problems are universal. She reminds us that human rights and environmental issues cannot be ignored for the sake of growth if meaningful progress is to be achieved in any country.
