Mihir Sharma's Biography

Mihir Sharma was born in Delhi and grew up mainly in Bombay and Calcutta. He was trained as an economist and political scientist in Delhi and in Boston.

From 2008, he edited and wrote a column for the opinion pages of The Indian Express and Business Standard, both based in New Delhi, and has won a Sriram Sanlam award for financial journalism.

His book Restart: The Last Chance for the Indian Economy was published in 2015, to considerable critical acclaim; it won the Tata LitLive best Business Book of the Year and was longlisted for the Financial Times–McKinsey Business Book of the Year. In Restart,  Mihir Sharma shows what can and must change in India’s policies, its administration, and even its attitudes. The answers he provides are not obvious, nor are they all comforting or conventional. Yet they could, in less time than you can imagine, unleash the creativity of a billion hopeful Indians.

As of 2016, Mihir Sharma is also the India columnist for Bloomberg View in which he tackles some of the big questions that India faces both economically and politically.
