* Ramachandra Guha kicks off the special report with a brief history lesson, looking at the factors behind which make India such an unlikely nation
* Over 60 years, democracy in India has been challenged by poverty, violence and religious extremism. But against all the odds, it has survived. Salil Tripathi writes about Midnight's adults
* Kalpana Sharma on India's looming energy crisis: Fuelling the fire
* In Moving on, Sandy Howard explains how Delhi's transport captures the divide between rich and poor.
* Mahmood Farooqui writes that India's 150 million Muslims face poverty, illiteracy and attacks from the Hindu right, but their identity and traditions are inseparable from the rest of the country: Minority report
