Priya Samant and HSNC Presents 

A Nation

To Protect

with Priyam Gandhi – Mody

A Nation to Protect is the definitive account of India’s effective pandemic response from the topmost levels of leadership and government.
India managed to resist apocalypse predictions of mass deaths and disorder despite confronting a global crisis with inadequate resources, thanks to Prime Minister Modi’s tight control over the government.


Despite top “experts” having doubts about India’s ability to handle the task, the government streamlined steps to cut red tape, galvanized its inherited resources, and quickly increased capacities with the aid of fact-based scientific advice and careful reserve spending.
