Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned on Sunday from a two-day trip to Japan. He returned to a very different country than the one he left behind two days ago. When he left on the tour his war on black money was being hailed as a master stroke unprecedented in India’s fiscal history. When he returned he was being roasted over the coals for not planning the execution with millions of citizens stranded without legitimate currency for buying essential daily goods and services. He responded to the situation and the attack of harassed citizens and political opponents fare and square at a public meeting in Goa. While asking for 50 days moratorium from the honest citizen to expose the dishonest and the corrupt, Modi even choked momentarily saying he had offered his entire life for the country and he would see to it that he did what the country demanded of him. Come hell or high water.
