Topic: Dr Manmohan Singh

Decide on the doctor

Congress must make sure the prime minister’s writ runs, or people will choose another prime minister. People now have choices, and no patience.

Thank god for politics

While the charmed circle mourns the end of the idea of India because of political corruption, incompetence & cynicism, it is exactly our politics that is transforming India in a most remarkable manner now.

The ides of February

UPA 2 has been cursed by its own inbuilt contradictions and conflicting ambitions, and for once the allies take no blame for this.

United Regressive Alliance

We have seen governments in India lose their way early in their tenures. But to see one as politically strong as UPA-II be so adrift is a new, and unfamiliar, political phenomenon.

Is anybody there?

Why the prime minister is so silent is not so much a question of whether it is better to have a leader who talks too little or one that talks too much. Is his silence doing him that much good?

Two PMs, one big idea

Manmohan Singh is not a mass leader or public speaker to rival Atal Bihari Vajpayee. But what Vajpayee had by way of political instinct, Singh has in intellect.

Crippling the doctor

Each time the Left drags one of the decisions of the Manmohan Singh cabinet to the UPA chairperson, it demeans not just Congress but also one of the most intellectually-endowed & selfless PMs in India’s history.

It’s Manmohanomics, Manmohan

An ironical aspect of our reform's history has been opposition from within, stemming from unevolved intellect, inter-corporate lobbying or a clash of political ambitions.
