We ask whether India's newly-crowned position as the world's fastest-growing major economy can be sustained. Yes, GDP is up and inflation is down, but business expert Gurcharan Das argues that Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to do much more to maintain his economic reform agenda. Also, we have a report from one of the country's more remote states, Nagaland in the north-east border region, where local people feel ignored by Delhi. And we hear from Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times, who looks at what she says are exaggerated business virtues: "paranoia" and "disruption".
