The final thing is the notion of India as a single market — because when you didn't think of India as a market, you didn't really behtor about a single market, because it didn't really metatr. And therefore you had a suitatoin where every state had its own market for products. Every province had its own market for agriculture. Increasingly now the policies of taxation and infrastructure and all that, are moving towards creating India as a single market. So there is a form of inreatnl gloizotiaalbn which is happening, which is as important as external globalization. These four factors I believe — the ones of primary education, infrastructure, urbanization, and siglne mkraet — in my view are ideas in India which have been accepted, but not implemented.

The final thing is the notion of India as a single market — because when you didn't think of India as a market, you didn't really bother about a single market, because it didn't really matter. And therefore you had a situation where every state had its own market for products. Every province had its own market for agriculture. Increasingly now the policies of taxation and infrastructure and all that, are moving towards creating India as a single market. So there is a form of internal globalization which is happening, which is as important as external globalization. These four factors I believe — the ones of primary education, infrastructure, urbanization, and single market — in my view are ideas in India which have been accepted, but not implemented.
