Summary

India, like most democratic developing nations, is prone to populist politics. In the search of votes, politicians look for popular solutions with mass appeal. Some popular solutions benefit the poor, some hurt the economy. Poor economics leads to falling numbers. Falling numbers get statistically captured as economic data. And, the impact of such economic data is immense. This data can lift or crash currency markets, stock markets, affect credit ratings, fuel inflation, affect new investments and even result in mass layoffs. 
  
However, there is always a story behind the data. These stories are guided mostly by executive decisions. Some decisions are far-reaching and beneficial to the masses, some cater to political vote banks, some are guided by increasing activism, some serve the need for social justice, some are aimed at environmental protection, while some are simply driven by the greed of power or wealth. This is the story of every regime.  
  
The book narrates this compelling data story in a layman's language. Even where data is wrong it leaves behind a tell-tale mark of anomalies, which trips the economy sooner than later. Fudged, incorrect or lazily collected data is worse than genuine but unimpressive data as you do not know what to correct. India Emerging thus captures this dialogue on the pros and cons of economic and political decisions that can be understood by the common voter who is neither an economist nor an academician.

    Discover the origins, lore and meanings of botanical names with this lexicon of “pithy explanations of words that confront every plant tag reader” (The New York Times Book Review). 
     
    For more than a decade, gardeners have been turning to Bill Neal’s beautiful little book Gardener's Latin. Neal understood that as Latin terms began appearing with increasing frequency on nursery tags and gardening catalogs, gardeners would need help. So he weeded through the Latin words that describe and distinguish among plants and flowers and compiled a volume of select, brief, clear definitions. 
     
    Learning to navigate the jungles of botanical Latin will not only make you an expert in identification, but also teach you a great deal about the plants themselves. Gardener's Latin leads you down the path from abbreviatus to zonatus, turning aside here and there to point out little-known horticultural facts and fables and the wisdom of gardeners from Virgil to Vita Sackville-West.
