India at a crossroads: How could Modi govern?

Last year, GPS broadcast ‘India at a Crossroads,’ an in-depth look at the challenges the country faces. Watch the video for the full segment on why India’s next prime minister, Narendra Modi, is widely seen as having transformed the state of Gujarat as governor.

When we think of China, we imagine an authoritarian land where things work, a place where freedom is sacrificed, but in return you get strong economic growth. When we think of India, we think of a messy democracy, of organized chaos – a place where growth is sacrificed for freedom. Now, imagine a place in India where both are true, where there is democracy, but also strong economic growth…

Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries Ltd.: If you look at the growth in Gujarat, it has been better than China if you think about Gujarat as a country.

Mukesh Ambani is not only the richest man from the state of Gujarat, he's also the richest man in India.

What Gujarat has demonstrated is that over decades you can attract investment and with sensible governance, you can really improve.
