The momentum of change across India is evidenced in the enthusiasm among India’s youth. The growth of civil society organisations, aspirations of youth legislators, and participation of activists are grounded in the market. The momentum of change across India thus is presented as the politics of hope that is brought about by the power of the market. We must also note the articulation of the sense of possibility of hope that has been made possible by the market such that everyday, Indians can leave their village in the hope for something better waiting for them in their future. The narrative of continual progress and belief in the future thus are intertwined with the individual freedoms that have been brought about by the market. Belief in the future made possible through self-help and participation in the market is synonymous with new opportunities. This sense of possibilities then is juxtaposed in the backdrop of welfare services and public support, which are portrayed as being out of sync with the new imagination of a new empowered India. The story of an India is that of liberated aspirations made possible by economic reforms. This is further improved by the state based politics of public welfare and public support. The promise of India in its youth is marked by liberalisation and market reforms. The miracle of market holds key to the future of India.

Q.46. The change witnessed in India now is due to

(A) Social grounding

(B) Political interference

(C) The market momentum

(D) Youth migration

Q.47. The change taking place in India is described as

(A) Activism

(B) Articulation

(D) Politics of hope

Q.48. The youth’s belief in the future is propelled by

(A) Disrupted progress

(B) Self-help

(C) Restricted freedom

(D) Unsynchronised imagination

Q.49. Which of the following has strengthened the people’s belief in the future?

(A) Public welfare policies
