I have just seen the following statistic:
in the US, there are 3 million policy shapers, 3 million influential intermediaries, and 16 million people who could be described as members of the public actively engaged with public policy debates and discussions.
Does anyone know, or can we attempt to work out, how many would fall into the last category in India?
I would be astonished if it is more than one million.
But I would be happy to be surprised....
