    Posted by Amit Singh on August 22, 2016 at 7:07 am

      Is Narendra Modi’s foreign policy “risk-prone”, “reckless” and unduly “personalised”? These questions and these expressions have been heard repeatedly.

Earlier they followed the Nuclear Suppliers’ Group (NSG) plenary in Seoul and found mention in analyses of Modi’s high-octane international visits. How valid is […]

  • Rajapaksa camp’s increasing India-bashing
    Posted by Amit Singh on August 13, 2016 at 5:05 am

    Despite the perceived bonhomie when he was in power, the Rajapaksa camp, now constituting the self-styled Joint Opposition (JO), is high on anti-India rhetoric, with each passing day.

    Posted by Amit Singh on August 11, 2016 at 5:29 pm

    Expectations are unrealistically high from the long delayed move to amend the Constitution and levy a common Goods and Service Tax (a value added tax) across the Union and all state governments.
