thank you very much, kapidhwaja. do you have a (permanent) URL for this? i'd like to quote this piece in a column i am writing.
i had heard about vibrant gujarat but didnt realize that it was such a huge success.
i was in ahmedabad some time ago, and i was struck by the new departure lounge in the airport terminal: a very nice one, with the best bathrooms (gleaming, spotless, 5-star-hotel class).
the fact that modi's tenure is so succesful has a lot to do with the fact that he has kept close tabs on mohammedan mischief-makers.
also, in 2002, he did far more to quell disturbances than rajiv gandhi did in 1984 after the indira gandhi murder: but the marxist media does not give him credit. he is their worst nightmare: a hindu and a nationalist who is also bringing jobs and wealth to his state, brutally exposing the hollowness of their slogans, while bengal and kerala slide further down the drain.
