Running For Cover (Cached) 14.4.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
There is a great deal of noise floating around as Indians are bombarded with wild, over-the-top speculation and superficial political debates on a book by a former aide to the prime minister, Manmohan Singh. The timing of the publication was a calculated exercise; the publisher realized that the book's sales would be marginal once the incumbent government left office. Pointing fingers at everyone and finding fault with everything have become so common in public discourse that Indians have to deal with these throughout their waking hours. There are no exciting, fresh ideas that greet the country, either in the print or in the electronic media.

India elections: subtle foreign policy could take tougher line under Modi 11.4.2014 The Guardian -- World Latest
Election victory for BJP frontrunner could bring about readjustment in country's relations with China, US and south Asian neighbours In the heart of Kathmandu, in the narrow lanes around the famous Durbar Square, a quiet transformation is taking place. The Chinese are coming. There are the tourists almost 10% of the total visitors to Nepal in 2012 and more than eight times as many as a decade before. There are the new languages schools generously subsidised by Beijing. And there are the shops full of Chinese goods, even those which India, long the dominant power in the small Himalayan state, can supply in abundance. "Middle-class Nepali people can afford jeans if they are made in China," said Babu Dhakal, a 32-year-old shopkeeper who earns a living from cheap Chinese clothes, drinks Chinese beer and eats Szechuan cuisine when he can with new Kathmandu-based Chinese ...

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had been "defanged" by the Congress party in his second term with Sonia Gandhi deciding on key appointments to the Cabinet and to the PMO as he seemed to "surrender" to her and to the UPA constituents. This picture of a prime minister losing "all vestiges of control over his own government" emerges from a just-published book by a former close aide of his, Sanjaya Baru, who provides an insight into the "cautious equation" between the PM and Congress President and Singh's "often troubled" relations with his ministers. Baru, a senior editor and PM's Media Adviser between 2004 and 2008, quotes Singh as having told him that there cannot be two centres of power. "That creates confusion. I have to accept that the party president is the centre of power. The government is answerable to the party," the PM told him, according to the 301-page book "The Accidental Prime Minister--The Making and Unmaking Of Manmohan Singh" published by Penguin. Baru writes that after he had led the ...
