this post is just to show some of the letters / mail that I get about the Great Indian Dynasty: Nehru-Gandhi Parivaar…


This book by Mark was published in 1991, a full 25 years back. India has progressed very well after the duo of Shri.Narshimha Rao & Shri.Manmohan Singh opened up the economy in 1992. Not to forge that the ball was set rolling, although slowly my Rajiv Gandhi from the same Nehru dynasty. Much has happened despite the presence of this Banyan Tree. Madam Indira Gandhi made big changes by abolishing Privy Purses & Nationalising the major banks. Nationalisation of Banks & the spread of banking to every nook and corner is one big achievement which ushered in a series of developmental activities in several areas.Priority Sector Lending norms are a great way to ensure availability of credit to important segments in the economy.So much has changed in our nation & the Billions which continue to flow by way of FDI etc are proof of the ongoing development which belie Marks comment “For all its great achievements, the Nehru dynasty has stood like a Banyan tree, overshadowing the people and the institutions of India, and all Indians know that nothing grows under the Banyan tree”. We all know that the potential of India, embedded in its Democracy, Natural Resources, Culture & Human Resources is not tapped till date. The strong foundation is ready for building the greatest nation on this earth. Will Narendra Modi be able to do it or more particularly can he unshackle himself from the past & the likes of divisive forces from within his Parivar which have an agenda of their own. Only time will show. Common man is now looking for actual results after all the rhetoric heaped on him. Mark named is book very aptly “No Full Stops in India” when we look back to 2004 when a bogus claim of ‘India Shining’ was made by a political party. India has always been shining in one or many ways since centuries. India will always shine in many new areas in the days ahead.

Note: this came to me as a comment. Since it is of sucha high quality, Im reproducing it…

  1. So, this great reviewer/commentator didn’t even understand that ‘Banyan Tree’ in this context was a negative jibe?
