A career spanning half a century with seats at many power tables, career bureaucrat & former parliamentarian, NK Singh, has shaped policy and watched the Indian economy open up and evolve. In his memoirs, the Portraits of Power, NK Singh chronicles his journey from Delhi to Davos. A telling account of his journey, the book also raises important questions about the future of the Indian economy and the institutions build to deliver governance.

From fiscal reforms to federalism, there are lessons for future policymakers and plenty of interesting anecdotes for those who want a ringside view of what goes on in the corridors of power.

In conversation with Shereen Bhan, The author & chairman of the 15th Finance Commission NK Singh said, “Has India achieved or realised its growth potential, certainly not. India's growth potential offers an opportunity that needs to be grasped, needs to be grasped in multiple ways by continuing the existing reform process, by reshaping agriculture, improving agriculture productivity, protein intake, and most important reshaping education using technology in pedagogic.”

“I think where India needs to go is to embrace fully what technology, 5G, artificial intelligence (AI) has to offer and harness its full growth potential,”

“The book is also not only a story of India’s evolution as an economic kind of an entity, but the evolution of how progressively we are embracing technology more fully.”
