Will Gujarat model work for India? For the most part, it will

Left intellectuals are being dishonest by attacking the Gujarat model without facts. The model has its flaws, especially in relying too much on trickle-down theories in tribal areas, but the model works, and is scalable to India #Narendra Modi #Amartya Sen #Gujarat Model #HDI #Modinomics

Nellie and Delhi: 'Secular' riots versus 'communal' riots

Even before Rajiv Gandhi made his "when a big tree falls.." comment, our media ignored Indira Gandhi's on the Nellie communal massacre - which were equally infamous. This shows how we look at riots committed under secular watch. #Sonia Gandhi #Manmohan Singh #Congress #Amartya Sen #ConnectTheDots #Assam #Rajiv Gandhi #Indira Gandhi #Nellie
