India has the largest number of young people in the world. Forty percent of the population is under the age of twenty. And New York Times journalist Somini Sengupta says young Indians are changing their country profoundly with demands for economic opportunity and social equity. Part memoir, part political history, Sengupta’s book “The End of Karma: Hope and Fury Among India’s Young,” explores the barriers and hopes of this dynamic new generation.
