A fifty-fifty democracy 24.1.2015 Telegraph: Opinion
India, I have long maintained, is a fifty-fifty democracy. In some respects - such as free and fair elections, free movement of people - we are as democratic as any other country in the world. In other respects, we lag noticeably behind. One such area is the freedom of expression.

The Guardian view on Saudi Arabia after King Abdullah’s death 24.1.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
The Saudi Arabian royal family has to resolve the contradictions at the heart of their state The House of Saud is one of the biggest and most successful family businesses in the world and, as in any business, much depends on the CEO. King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz was a skilful manager of his awkward country after he took over as effective regent in 1995, when King Fahd was disabled by a stroke. He was adept at steering the contentious princely clan at the top of the Saudi system, many of whose members have less access to privilege and power than the stereotypes suggest. He was good, if slow, at accommodating the growing class of educated commoners whose allegiance, and satisfaction, are vital if Saudi Arabia is to become a modern industrial economy. He was successful in defeating a major internal Islamist threat in the shape of al-Qaida. He also took action, belatedly and still far from completely, on the export of Wahhabi extremism and the funding of Islamist movements abroad by Saudi individuals and ...

New Saudi king to focus economic policy on jobs as oil sags 24.1.2015 FirstPost: World

DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's new king is expected to focus economic policy on creating jobs and multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects to prevent tumbling oil prices from causing social tensions or undermining business confidence. King Salman, who took the throne in the early hours of Friday after the death of his brother King Abdullah, inherits an economy that faces its biggest challenge since the global financial crisis in 2009

Pragmatic conservatism 23.1.2015 DNA: Top News
The death of Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, the Custodian of the Holy Shrines — the official title of the man who is virtually the king of Saudi Arabia — at the age of 90 on Wednesday, and Salman, governor of Riyadh, being named the new king, should be of concern to policymakers in the country. Unfortunately, news about the premier Muslim kingdom, which is home to Mecca and Medina, two of the most sacred places for the billion plus Muslims in the world, comes from Western sources, which are extremely tainted with ignorance and prejudice.  Saudi Arabia, the largest producer and exporter of petroleum in the world and crucial American ally in West Asia, occupies a rather ambiguous place in the troubled world of the rising tide of global jihadi terrorism. There is strong suspicion that the Saudi government finances the extremist network and that this was because of the rigid ideological conservatism supposed to be emanating from what is considered puritanical Wahhabism. Saudi conservatism and the Wahhabi dominance ...

Putin’s new Gazprom strategy actually makes sense 23.1.2015 DNA: Top News
Putin’s new Gazprom strategy actually makes sense When Russia cancelled a planned pipeline to deliver natural gas to Europe across the Black Sea last month and said it would redirect the project to Turkey, some thought it was a bluff, others a sign of financial weakness and still others a rebuke to the West over Ukraine as President Vladimir Putin turned elsewhere to look for new partners. In reality, the change made good commercial sense and should have happened years ago, according to a new report by some of the most knowledgeable people on Russia’s gas industry. The shift also means that Gazprom, Russia’s State-controlled gas company, won’t be able to completely cut Ukraine out of the transit business, as the original South Stream pipeline had sought to do, for years to come. And, the authors might have added, the new arrangement is healthier for Europe,too. The cancellation of South Stream is part of a broader change of strategy for Gazprom that plays to the company’s strengths, say Jonathan Stern, ...

New Saudi king seeks to reassure on succession and policy 23.1.2015 FirstPost: World

RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi King Salman pledged continuity in energy and foreign policies on Friday and then quickly moved to appoint younger men as his heirs, settling the succession for years to come by naming a deputy crown prince from his dynasty's next generation. King Abdullah, who died early on Friday after a short illness, was buried in an unmarked grave in keeping with local religious traditions. By appointing his youngest half-brother Muqrin, 69, as Crown Prince and nephew Mohammed bin Nayef, 55, as Deputy Crown Prince, Salman has swiftly quelled speculation about internal palace rifts at a moment of regional turmoil
