India is in Transition. Unfortunately, this transition is deepening the paradox of India, where on the one hand a very small section of the population is concerning the dividends of a rapidly growing Indian economy and on the other hand the majority of the people remain excluded from this process of growth and development. The pace of this transition is unprecedented and is fundamentally altering the political, economic and social landscape of the country. Arguably, the most important cause for these changes is globalization and its accompanying processes. In-spite of this enormous impact, globalization remains as one of the most contested ideas of our times due to the partisan nature of its impact, this has led to deep divisions within the country and divided the polity and society almost vertically on pro and anti globalization lines.
