Think the unthinkable: Can Rahul be PM in 2019?

'If on the back of the resentment against the Modi government, on the very outside chance that the Congress emerges as the single largest party in May 2019, will Rahul Gandhi become prime minister?''Or will he do a Sonia and appoint someone else?' asks T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan.

How the Supreme Court became 'lions under the throne'

The Supreme Court of India became 'lions under the throne' when Jawaharlal Nehru brought in the Fourth Amendment in 1955, says T C A Srinivasa Raghavan.Illustration: Dominic Xavier/ Judges have been making news for centuries, for good, bad, right and wrong reasons. They wield enormous power because they decide what is ok and what is not in what governments do. In that sense they are the real bosses of any country. The first book I read about a judge was in the late 1960s. It was ...

What makes for a good autobiography?

As cricketing ability goes, there is no comparison between Sanjay Manjrekar and Sachin Tendulkar. But while the former has produced a wonderful autobiography, the latter’s book is deadly dull. In batting, they were the exact opposite: Manjrekar was a bore and Sachin an absolute marvel, says T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan. Regular readers may have noticed that I read a lot of autobiographies, mostly of cricketers, economists, civil servants, politicians and judges. The best are the reflective ...

Illustration: Dominic Xavier/ In December 1987 some people in the Congress suggested to then prime minister Rajiv Gandhi that rather than wait till December 1989 for his full term to run out, he should hold the next general election in 1988 itself.

Why Modi deserves praise for this Budget

'If anything, he is a fiscal hawk.''He has avoided fiscal profligacy completely for the past four years.''The fiscal deficits since 2014 are clear proof of this.''The point is not that it is not 3 per cent yet; it is that it is not 6, 7 or 8 per cent, which it could easily have been.''For this he needs to be congratulated.''He has recognised it no longer pays to spend other people's money to win elections,' points out T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan.

Forget Vikas. Hindutva will be Modi's card in 2019

'Unlike in Gujarat, where he could ask for votes based on delivery, in 2019 he will have to appeal to his core Hindutva ideology, by firing over someone else's shoulders,' says T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan. IMAGE: Prime Minister Narendra D Modi in Lucknow on Dussera, 2016. India's prime ministers are a fascinating bunch. All of them have had to strike a balance between political and governance instrumentality and ideology. Viewed from that perspective, we get a very consistent set of PMs. The sole ...
