Nandan Nilekani, in an interview to Businessweek magazine explains the Indian way of getting things done.
Businessweek: Things are happening much faster in China, where they build infrastructure so rapidly.
Nilekani: It's going to happen, but not the way it happens in China. In China, a bunch of guys get in a room and decide to build a 16-lane highway from Shanghai to Beijing, and it's going to happen.
There's no way that will happen in India. It's too chaotic and argumentative. But what's going to happen is these 200 planes will be ordered, they won't land. They'll be circling. Everybody will get [very angry].
Finally, there will be such public outcry that the airports will get built. It's a different model. But it's a model.
And hopefully a day will come when we won't need to get angry anymore...
