India is indeed poised for a new trajectory of super development in which currently the estimates are at very high level than at any other point in the Indian history. Zeitgeist is the spirit of time, which envelops all cultural, social, economic and sociopolitical changes in any society, or country. Simultaneously the impact of Gini Index, can be a potential threat in the developmental journey of any nation.

Gini index in the Indian context is a very serious problem and is often witnessed in the backdrop of great achievements, which are often jolted by ugly incidences, primarily resulting from the acute poverty and vast social disequilibrium in ‚haves and havenots‘. In the backdrop of these two inconsistent factors (Zeitgeist & Gini Index) the progress of any nation can get hampered. Post elections of 2015; there is dream; like a volcanic eruption of psychological hopes that some thing like a very happy India is about to emerge. “Achhe Din” (Good Days) is indeed the psyche in which millions of young Indians at the bottom of the pyramid are hoping for very remarkable things to happen.

The issues of this vulnerable population in highly diversified Indian socio-political system remains a very crucial factor. This presentation will probe some basic factors of this disequilibrium and also seek some remedy by think tank people in policy making that how the nation will move smoothly in future with this backdrop? For sure; ‚Achhe Din‘ will be there with the flow of Zeitgeist, but prudential policies by ‚Think Tank‘ in India should be vigilant to address the issue of troubled population, rotting at the social-economic bottom, which gives rise to the yawning gap and can trigger red alarm in our journey to ‚Achhe Din’.
