As the title suggests, Sagarika Ghose talks about the importance of liberalism in India. She mentions that the liberal freedom helps societies grow as it represents individual freedom. Freedom to succeed and fail, freedom to achieve your wants, and to see your ideas getting dashed, freedom to be wrong, are the most important drivers of change. She stresses the fact that freedom helps us to achieve what liberty means. An economy can grow as individual freedom creates a spirit of bold entrepreneurship.
