Rajiv Gandhi brought in new ideas and young blood. He introduced the five days week for the government offices. It was a revolutionary change for India. He is also to be given credit for the computerisation of all the government offices. Today, thnaks to his ideas, all the records are available at click of a mouse.
As the first young Prime Minister of India, he changed th face of India. Had his life not been robbed at the young age, I think we could expect a lot more from this dynamic man who had many ideas yet to be implemented. We need more young leaders like RAjiv Gandhi today to make India one of the leadign nations of the world.

Nehruvian Socialism was the root cause of actually no development as long as this system of socialism prevailed with no open market hence no competition. It was Inspector raj and there was quota for everything. Public Sector Under taking were like White elephants. Only meant for employing people to show that the unemployment was not there!

All the eminent politician particularly who did head the ruling party of yester years tried to do good for the country as per their perception.Nehruji thought industrialisation with social control would be the only thing to do for the good of the country.that was not wrong at post indipendence stage.but subsiquently it was proved wrong since one cannot neglect the prime sector of our country i.e agriculture.so at post nehru era green revolution become the biz word.,Idiraje considewred bank nationalization is the only panacea for upliftment of the poor mass which also did not hold much water later.
what i want to say that no politician could do any perpitual good to our country during 61 years of independence or gap between haves and havenots wuold not become wider and wider with the days.it would not have required to ammend the constitution to extend the period of reservation policy and creat a new reserved cartagory of OBC.less said the better on the social reform front.even after 61 ...more
