Wisely, India joined the revolution in information communication technology (ICT) early and has become a powerful member of that community. For some reason it managed to do so largely without going through the growing pains of the so-called "middle stages" of most economic development models to develop a mature industry whose growth is driven by technology. In this collection of 11 articles and a general introduction contributors describe how ICT developed in India and why the technology is likely to place the country within the top five economic leaders in the next ten years or so. They describe how theories do and do not apply, how India developed its service economy and approach to quality, innovations in the ICT sector of which India took advantage, patterns of growth developed in India that could be reproducible and future possibilities within the Indian ICT industry.
