    I think there were far too many leaders in the UPA with no mass base, but who held powerful union cabinet positions and exercised great power and influence. All based on their closeness to the Gandhi family. Likewise they favoured those career bureaucrats that curried favour with this coterie. A nice cosy club, all told.

    A necessary readjustment is underway. Like them or leave them, but people rise to the top in the BJP based on their mass base and track record, not based on their toadyism or chamchagiri index. Likewise the BJP is playing a waiting game of phasing out the old guard in the bureaucracy that was accustomed to taking their marching orders from successive Congress governments.

    Once these changes are made, I think the BJP will decentralise.

    Mr. Rajan feel divisive populism based on castes that Congress preached was okay? sounds like uniting population is seen as 'divisive' but dividing is seen as progressive? it almost feels like sour grapes here – while his policies did contain inflation initially, him sustaining it for too long starved the small and med industries out of capital and hence lead to downturn & hence his firing. The party that called that out is termed as majoritarian. yes, 5% is bad and this govt needs to focus on future than blame the past. However, his reasons around majoritarianism is not apt to the current ruling party.
    The fact is that India has been inherently open culture – if conversion forces could assimilate (which is what current govt is trying) then things will be fine socially. Instead, if the abrahamic religions indulge in forcible conversion via money, propaganda, fear mongering then it disrupts the social culture.

    wish someone had raised these?

    There is a Great element of 'Sour Grapes' in what this man is saying.Its not every one or any one , who can be a sage.Good in Finance is different from good in other fields such a economics and nation running, 'emotional quotient' etc that you need to have to be successful, in the role you had been in.It would be better if instead of these ,'spilling of bile', Raghu could him self gain wisdom and become a diplomatic speaker and some-one who can charm and win the hearts and can be transformational in India and could remain a proud son of the Soil and a Wise Citizen of the world.,For what, purpose is Raghu saying this–just to hurt–get his revenge. Is it not a waste of time.Is the current Govt at heart malicious.It has great dreams for India, but the conundrum is how to resolve it.You were in Power, if you had a winning way, besides your strict 'Finance' then possibly you could have contributed greatly to the same cause that, the current Govt is striving at.Just maligning the Govt can get your revenge in terms of the influencial among the auduence ,impacting(-/+) on the current govt's functioning in some way, we don't know yet,and thus , not helping the govt deliver to the needy people.Just get out of your petty mind , get wise and work for the nation and the people of the world. It is the people who elected the Govt., can that be undone and is there a way you Can to undo(Did we have a better choice this time–see the Congress–Rahul('Juvenile') and the Lot). You are just in the process of your pettiness contributing to the misery of the people .
    Cheer-up.Come-up with Bright ideas.Have a pleasant mindset and admit your foolishness.And be useful and productive and just dont go about bitter.

    –The take home message for Raghu—neither, you,me or any one mortal can change the dispensation for the term of the current Government–its not as bad as you make it look. It has not set out to hurt the nation.In fact the top leadership has started with great ideals–but what they may be getting wrong is the path, they are experimenting with–Do we have may astute in our country–we need universal education and the democratic process to go on for several decades till we have a population with the Critical Mass of the Astute. We need more wise individuals.I hope more and more indians will go into top education and thus come with detailed vision on running the country and over a few decades we will have a critical mass of great minds ,who by then will streamline all aspect of nation building lets hope(it is hope–and working positively with good-will–fostering one-ness of our people and one-nesss with the rest of the family of cultures and peoples that is needed of people ,intellectuals like you, without losing perspective of the life of 80/85years that we each live).It is amaturish presently, but do we have better.The best our country has, like you ,are so lost in self glory, that ,your pride is more important than the development and growth of the country and more important,than the lives of the many many millions.There are many 'back-channels',by virtue of what you achieved in your life, where you can still keep passing on your great Ideas when you generate them .Demonitization etc were experiments lets say,again suggested by people who thought they knew what was good.Now there is no point in keeping talking on that,Rather, it would be wise to use your wisdom to convey positive messages in the direction of progress, so that people now in govt have may positive ideas and they may find one of your idea unique and useful. Be positive , and spend your life for the betterment, why waste time remembering and reminding your bitter experience/episode.Nation running is practical and some one has to take a call, is there a better way we know now ,than the election .Lets spend time on devising better ideas for a better world.

    A truly brilliant person is humble and minds his own business.
    One who considers himself brilliant also considers himself indispensable and seeks to advise others. Usually, by becoming a mouth piece for vested interests.
    Bharat(India) will survive, Sir. It was the greatest civilization in the world and has withstood horrors. Don't provide your shoulders for others to shoot from.
    Your credibility ? able.
