A piece in Foreign Policy says that Ayn Rand’s now big in India:
Not only do Indians perform more Google searches for Rand than citizens
of any country in the world except the United States, but Penguin Books
India has sold an impressive number of copies — as many as 50,000 of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead each since 2005, a number comparable to sales there by global best-seller John Grisham.
100,000 books a year in a country of 1,000,000,000 people sounds unimpressive. But it all depends on leverage. Wouldn’t it be amazing if 100,000 Indian bloggers were reading Rand every year?
