BANGALORE | By Srikanth Vasuraj | Coming from a non-believer this is a big change when I say that I am actually glad that Mr. Narendra Modi has taken over the helm in India. He comes across like a breath of fresh air, speaking the language that people of India have been dying to hear for a long time. This is probably one of the reasons why he won with such a huge mandate. But now that the dust of elections has settled and having been in the hot seat for around six months, the honeymoon period is over and people are eagerly looking forward to delivery on all those promises. The people of India have delivered. Now its his turn.
BANGALORE | By Srikanth Vasuraj | Thanks to the Supreme Court of India, the last few days have seen some significant action, sending some powerful politicians behind bars. The country has over the years seen rising criminalization of politics with people with dubious backgrounds winning elections and occupying seats of power in Parliament. The growing cosy nexus between parties and criminals with the objective of winning seats in elections and the rising corruption amongst the ruling political class and bureaucracy have been the main cause for this alarming phenomenon.
