Opening Sentence of the Day: India: The Rise of an Asian Giant

"The Indian giant is rising like Gulliver after being released from the web of threads with which he had been pinned down." -- India: The Rise of an Asian Giant by Dietmar Rothermund. This book about India's economic rise by a German scholar has not gotten much play yet. But it looks interesting and, judging from the opening line, it is not going to be horribly dry.

Wow, that is a mouthful. My brain automatically went to the beginning of the sentence right in the middle because it knew it wouldn't understand it on the first go around.
