India in the Multipolar World

The 21st century is not China’s century. Nor will it remain America’s. The geopolitical and geoeconomic conditions that enabled Britain to become ‘Great’ in the 19th century and claim that century for itself, building a global empire, and that enabled the U.S. to emerge as the dominant world power of the 20th century do not exist for China or anyone else today. The ‘unipolar’ world of the British and American em...

Power without Morality is Poison

It was in his power to be the saviour of their lives. The statesman could have easily devolved the social security payments to the needy, only if corruption had not embroiled him. The farmer’s suicide would then have had not become a poison for his family !
