Q.

For the PM of a complex fledgeling Demoracy like India, takes more than intellectualism and scholarly temperament. Dr. Man Mohan Singh a Ph.D. from Camridge and a world renown Economist, it was not right to joint politics. He chose Throne over Chair (which is in Universities and institutes if higher learning). As an intellectual he can call a spade a spade. In politics he is required to call a Spade a Shovel many a times ... and he is not cut out for that.
What are your views Pls?

This was, indeed, the initial idea when Sonia decided to make him sit on PM's chair. She would take care of the politics while he will focus on governance and progress. It would have been an ideal arrangement but for the fact that in politics idealism cannot survive. Sonia was coaxed by her coterie (who are jealous of MMS sitting on PM's chair) into infringing upon the independence required by a PM to do his job properly.

I absolutely agree.He is indeed a very qulaified intellectual and a great economist and i truly appreciate the work he has done for Indian economy as a Finance Minister in the 1990's.But you have very correctly said that being in politics he has to call a spade a shovel many a time.He may not have been cut out for that but everyone has been keenly observing that he very silently speaks only what is put into hsi mouth by Sonia Gandhi or he prefers to stay mum.Well that is absolutely not expected of a PM of India and that too a person of teh stature of MMS.Everyone thinks he should take more independant decisions and be more concerned about teh country rather than making the PM office of India as the office of a faithful servant of the party High command.In such a case we only need an ordinary person as the PM who may just be literate to read and write and perhaps can survive at a salary of Rs5000/- per month only.

I feel he is the right person in the wrong profession.
He should have taken the Chair.

He has been made sacrificial goat n he willingly accepted the same.He has become shameless .The recent confusion in the UPA Govt. n his position has made matters worse for him.He has lost all his credibility as a world class economist.
