Raghuram Rajan effect: Why media got it all wrong

The revival in market sentiment - both stocks and the rupee - is a sign of reversal to the mean. Don't call it the Raghuram Rajan effect. #Sensex #Raghuram Rajan #To The Contrary #Rupee-dollar rate

Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi and the Power of One

Will Modi turn out to be a Hitler, as his detractors are alleging? The history of India proves that we believe in the Power of One, but within a democratic construct #Politics #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #To The Contrary #Authoritarianism #Power of One

Liberals are compromising the war against jihadi terror

The liberal elite has now come to accept that Muslims are being unfairly targeted in terror-related cases.
