River linking will not solve our water problems
What is surprising is that instead of re-starting National River Linking Project, which many have called ‘hydro hubris’, the government did not go for the changes that could have been done at the micro-level.
Modi has set a high benchmark by projecting himself as a transformative leader
Modi has devoted his attention to public diplomacy during the US visit, in an effort to acquaint the American people and businesses with himself, the ambitions of his government and what they mean for stakeholders in India.
Narendra Modi made Indian Americans feel at home
Modi's speech acknowledged the role played by the diaspora in his long march to power. A range of Indian American businessmen, professionals and homemakers contributed to Modi’s campaign — either monetarily or through different forms of campaign work.
Seems Indian media has become hardwired to overlook NE
It seems that the Indian media has become hardwired to overlook the North-East and the challenges that it faces, which in many cases are not actually very dissimilar to what other states face.
Volatile politics of TN is once again in a flux
How will Jayalalithaa verdict change, if at all it does, the political landscape of Tamil Nadu? Her party, the AIADMK, will surely take a beating and this is a shot in the arm for rival political parties.
PM reaches out to Americans but minces no words on engaging neighbours
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the United States is going remarkably well. Unlike visits to the US by his predecessor Manmohan Singh, Mr Modi’s visit has an air of pageantry alongside the more serious elements.
Maharashtra election is anybody’s game now
Now that the state alliances between the Congress-NCP and BJP-Shiv Sena, are a thing of the past, the election has turned into a game-changer for all the parties, indeed for the state’s politics itself.
PM visit chance to discern the depth of US’ interest in India
The visit is expected to yield deliverables like the joint development of weapon systems, but the real measure of success would be if both leaders come away with a clear understanding of what they need to do to impart some momentum to bilateral ties.
Make in India: Green signal to cut the red tape
In terms of potential, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ programme can be as transformational as the Green Revolution was for agriculture and the White Revolution for milk production in India.
Removing blocks to transparency
Investors want a hassle-free entry into any economy where rules are consistent and steady. For long, India had been seen as a difficult place for anyone wanting to do business, a fact that any government can ignore only at its own peril.
India’s firmly in orbit now
The sky really seemed the limit on Wednesday morning as the MOM spacecraft entered Mars’ orbit and into Indian space history. Modi, while congratulating the scientists at the Isro, rightly noted that we have achieved 'the near impossible'.
The real test will be in Syria
American fighter jets, bombers and cruise missiles targeted IS militants in Syria on Tuesday morning. The strikes, focused on the city of Raqqa, come within two weeks of United States President Barack Obama’s speech.
On the highway to progress
The fact that many global chief executives and top bankers of Wall Street have met, or are expected to meet, Mr Modi, is perhaps a sign of the turnaround of India’s image as an investment destination.
Harassed and exploited, India's nurses deserve better
They go beyond the call of duty sometimes to save a life and sometimes just to comfort a patient. But the ubiquitous Indian nurses, called ‘sisters’ in this part of the world, are among the most underpaid and overworked in their profession.
A leader in place, Afghanistan is on the right track
The suspense over Afghanistan’s presidential elections is finally over. The two contenders have shown sagacity in working out a unity government which is just what Kabul needs now.
