    And pray tell me who are his political masters?

    Shouldn't we hold him/her responsible for India's current rudderless economic policies rather than blame manmohan?

    Having a thick skin helps. Anyone else with with a bit of self respect would have resigned or put his foot down at all the scams that have taken place under MMS's watch. Probably he is also corrupt as in Coalgate where MMS himself was the Coal Minister.

    Well . . . .put simply . . .He's a Bureaucrat . . .a Naukarshah as they say in Hindi . . .
    and an experienced one at that . . . one who must have learned to sidestep landmines . . . given his illustrious career.
    His honesty is quite obviously the dont ask dont tell kind . . .or he wouldnt have made so far

    He wont resign out of self respect coz he has already resigned on his self respect long ago when he was a Naukarshah

    He is the PM - the highest power wielding authority in the country.That he allows himself to become someone's puppet is the reason enough to blame him.
     
  7. Yes the Highest Power wielder . . .with in legal framework that is
    There's a lot of power outside that

    and definitely not Absolute . . .
    He is simply an instrument of power . . . he is the pen that writes but not the hand that moves it .

    The article correctly has pointed out that for somebody to have risen under Indira Gandhi, possesses a the necessary skills to please the boss and to learn to swim along with the flow.

    Lack of self-respect, self-preservation and selective blindness makes our PM to tick despite all odds.

    That is the description of President.

    Nobody has absolute power in democracy-infact the US Senate gives a tough time to the president - blocking bills, threatening impeachment, but they don't become puppets of house leader.
