The End of Karma by Somini Sengupta.

India is the land of young in our aging world. If Indians under age 35 were their own nation, their ranks would surpass the combined population of the United States, Britain and France. The End of Karma tells the stories of this unprecedented youth bulge through the lens of young Indians hungry and hopeful and keen to write their own destinies.
