No PM after being elected should ever again be allowed to abdicate his responsibilities and go missing during every crisis.

To strengthen democracy in INDIA, the entire MEDIA should come together and demand a LAW which makes it mandatory forever for any PM of INDIA to interact with the media once every fortnight at least for 60 min, & take a minimum of 15 questions from different journalists - 5 each from leading print media, electronic media & online media - with top 20 media houses from each field getting minimum of one chance by rotation to ask questions every two months. This will permanently end the godi media fraud.
We can never ever again let a leader of India be unanswerable to it’s people - who are represented by the media - or develop a cosy relationship with a few media houses and keep the people of the INDIA in dark.
Those who say I unnecessarily criticise Modi should know as recently as Aug 2020 I had written praised New Education Policy and must read this article I had written on him...
“The Lord, The Father & the Pradhan Sevak”
>>>Leadership lessons from Krishna, Gandhi & Narendra Modi<<<
Apart from these two recent ones before many people even thought of Modi as the next PM in July 2012 I had suggested that this was his golden chance ( )
And even before he won in 2014 I wrote in various papers on 12 reasons why he could be the best PM India has ever had (
It was a fight between Old Money versus vs New aspirations and the Victor was The latter (I had written long back in 2013
It was a fight between the elitist English media’s India vs the media from the hinterland’s Bharat and Bharat won (I had written way back in 2012
They thought here is a Hindu fanatic who will whip up religious frenzy and rule India (I used to believe that was the creation of media and wrote in 2014
Everyone thought his presence would start riots but I wrote riots have practically disappeared ( Till then the Delhi riots hadn’t taken place.
Everyone criticised his demonetisation (of course I believed in it & ) and the fact is to a large extent that’s what brought him back to power the second time - because the poor in india believed that he had taken away the black money of the rich.
In 2018 I had even written about how he had given India an imaginative Budget
People said much later that he was competing with Nehru, the truth is as I wrote in my editorial after he completed his first 30 days way back in 2014 that he was showing qualities of leadership “beyond Nehru” (
I don’t think there are many people who have written so much on him. I tried my best to believe in him... but have no hopes anymore.

“While, like last year, I seek the blessings of Lord Indra to bestow on us timely and bountiful monsoons, I would pray to Goddess Lakshmi as well. I think it is a good strategy to diversify one’s risks,” are the words of the ex-finance minister (and now President) Mr. Pranab Mukherjee during his budget speech for the year 2011-12. The statement is symbolic of the unfortunate ways in which our ministers have been keener on invoking Gods and Goddesses rather than depending on science and technology and straight forward ground level solutions to come to the rescue of India’s dwindling agriculture sector, which employs around 50% of India’s workforce, but is decreasing in its contribution to the GDP year aft er year. “As per latest estimates released by Central Statistics Office (CSO) the share of agricultural products/Agriculture and Allied Sectors in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country was 51.9 per cent in 1950-51, which has now come down to 13.7 per cent in 2012-13 at 2004-05 p

Surviving Tihar: The Good, the Bad and the Nazi By Dr. Arindam Chaudhuri

An essay based on my experience inside Tihar. For the first time since my father's death last year, I was happy that he was no more, for, at his age, he wouldn't have been able to take this pain. And yet as I sit down to write this, there’s no one I miss more because my life was always about talks with him. And the only person who would have truly appreciated and actually understood and enjoyed this essay was him. I dedicate this to him.    A couple of months back a completely illegal arrest wrt to a service tax issue, made a magistrate send me to Judicial Custody in Tihar. At first, I was of course very angry, but by the time the formalities got completed, the anger changed into a quest for knowledge about a system that my father, Dr Malay Chaudhuri and I had written extensively about in our 2003 book 'The Great Indian Dream' (in the chapter 'Indian Jails: Innocents inside Criminals outside'). After all how many people with an interest in jail reforms get a cha


When I was growing up in one of the better schools of Delhi, it was most common to see teachers slapping students. Scales being broken on our knuckles was as common a sight too, and as early as in class fifth, though luckily I always escaped. When I reached class sixth, I wasn’t that lucky. In one of the sculpture classes, an assistant came around and with his hard hands, slapped me hard on my head, because in all my creative excitement, I was engaged in talking to my friend Partho Saha, who was someone I looked up to when it came to creativity (I still do; and today he heads most of our technology projects at Planman, along with being a Dean at IIPM). I was furious. I wanted to hit back. I controlled myself, but went back home and told my father that he must do something about it. He was from the same school of thought as mine – rather, I had inherited his points of view. So the next day, my father took me to the principal of our school – a legendary name in education those days, R S
