Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Propelled by China's growth and more recently joined by India, has achieved in a generation what has taken other regions much longer, says a recent book.

The latest (National Council of Applied Economic Research) book by Rajat Nag titled 'The 21st Century: Asia's?' further says that Asians today are richer, healthier, living longer, and more educated than even four decades back.

However, the book also pointed out that as recent events keep reminding us, in the midst of rising plenty, Asians still suffer significant deprivations and indignities, economic think-tank said in a statement.

The book was launched today here followed by a panel discussion with Nag, former foreign secretary Shyam Saran and secretary general of Sanjaya Baru, it added.
