And no Republican could recognise China because they were staunch anti-communists How could one recognise the right of the largest most populous Communist nation to exist In November 1968 in a close battle with Hubert Humphrey Republican Nixon won the presidential election and walked into the China stalemate Ping-pong diplomacy was initiated and in 1972 Nixon went on an official visit to China Seven years later America formally recognised China as a nation This Nixon visit to China has become a political metaphor to describe according to Wikipedia “the ability of a politician with an unassailable reputation among his supporters for representing and defending their values to take actions that would draw their criticism and even opposition if taken by someone without those credentials” Recognition of the many political economic and social failures and new policies to change them is India’s need today We have continued for too long in postponing decisions and governing with a philosophy that is embedded in outdated mindsets India needs a prime minister who can take bold non-traditional and non-predictable steps to get us out of our own self-made traps Fortunately there is a PM election round the corner and all those wishing for a better India can vote with their feet hearts and minds for the candidate of their choice There are several prime ministerial candidates on offer at least 16 Fifteen of them are chief ministers or former chief ministers and one belongs to the world’s oldest political dynasty Rahul Gandhi According to three recent opinion polls Narendra Modi is first on the number of seats in the Lok Sabha list and Arvind Kejriwal brings up the rear with 9 expected seats Important policy decisions as a practical matter are rarely made by the establishment by the existing political order It cannot because it has too much vested in it What we as voters need to decide is who among the candidates is best placed to go against the expected Indian grain of lots of discussion and no action Modi seems to be distinctly different than the alphabet soup formed by the rest The rest pride themselves with economic policies to the left of Indira Gandhi with being secular as in belief in appeasement of minorities and job reservations for all and sundry and generally incapable of thinking beyond the narrow outdated and inappropriate confines of traditional mixed-up and illogical policies In the other corner is somebody who was born poor a lower caste a mere chai-wallah and someone brought up under the “watchful” eyes of a rigidly nationalist Hindu and archaic political organisation called the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (the RSS or the National Volunteer Organisation) If to paraphrase Rahul Gandhi one were to assess candidates on the basis of outsiders to the “system” then the list reduces to two and a half or a maximum of three There is Modi Gandhi and Kejriwal Unfortunately for Kejriwal his popularity has yet to reach the poor the middle class or the rich outside of the confines of Delhi Whether he does we will know soon but the opinion polls do not give him much chance But opinion polls have been wrong most prominently in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections and in the Delhi 2013 assembly elections What is it that India needs to do In foreign policy there are three priorities — Pakistan China and the US and in that order India needs to take a firmer stand with all three and also to work out a permanent long-run solution with Pakistan including a solution for cross-border terrorism spillover of terrorism and radical improvement in trade cultural and personal relations For too long the several-centuries-old brothers have been divided by religion Improvement of relations with Pakistan or Sri Lanka or Bangladesh or Nepal: would India rather have Modi or Gandhi or J Jayalalithaa or Mamata Banerjee By opening up a discussion on Section 370 Modi has indicated that he can be trusted with change Could Banerjee reach an agreement with Bangladesh Or Jayalalithaa with Sri Lanka Only Modi can carry conviction and India with him as he tries to establish long-term relations with our brotherly neighbours In social policy there is the urgent need to establish gay rights that is the rejection/ amendment of Section 377 of the Constitution Many political leaders kowtow to their own prejudice and religious bigotry to oppose gay rights They hide under the presumed weight of public “opinion” This has lessons for the AAP’s favourite method of deciding disputes — let us have an opinion poll If referendums could decide thorny social political and economic issues then government is not needed and nor by definition are political leaders like Kejriwal It bears emphasis that among the political parties the Congress is the only party to have taken a principled stand on the gay rights issue It is like the US Democrats in 1968 — it believes in the right thing to do but cannot because of fear of elections But no one expects Modi to recognise the human rights of gays and no one expects Modi to confront the religious bigotry of Hindus Muslims and Christians And the Supreme Court is not blameless either The venerable and respected judges find it fit to be socially and possibly unconstitutionally proactive when they feel like it and do so on not one but several issues yet parrot the Constitution when it suits them This is a very Khrushchevian mindset: “what is mine is mine what is yours is negotiable” On economic policies Modi does not have to go to Pakistan; instead he needs to follow through on his own recommendations If he becomes PM India will have the best chance of ushering in important second-generation reforms the most important of which will be decentralisation of state power Emphasising this need Gujarat Chief Minister Modi recently revealed how his government was taken to task by the Centre for laying down gas pipelines across the state “The Gujarat government was targeted by the Centre for laying down gas pipelines across the state The Centre said that it was its job not the state’s What is the use of such policies We have reduced this centralisation of power in Gujarat” According to Modi if better governance is to be achieved then the consent of the people (aam aadmi in fact) and their participation in decision-making is necessary There are several pointers to the “Modi goes to Pakistan” reality He has the best chance of success both because he has been the most progressive in shedding old discarded ideas and most importantly because expectations for forward progress on Pakistan Section 370 and Kashmir Section 377 are the least from him and the BJP In addition chances of adopting Fidel Castro-Kejriwal type ideas like free water

title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix could ultimately make racing even more exciting in 2017 File photo of Lewis Hamilton AP While Mercedes boss Toto Wolff refused to rule out punishment after Hamilton did everything he could to scupper team mate Nico Rosberg’s championship chances in Sunday’s showdown he recognised he was in two minds about what to do The Austrian said he would sleep on the controversy but he also wondered whether there might be a case for giving the drivers more freedom to race rather than seeking to control them That after a 21-round season in which Mercedes were more dominant than ever with 19 wins and 20 poles and won both titles for the third year in a row could prove a more popular outcome While some condemned Hamilton’s strategy in slowing the race in a failed bid to help others catch and pass Rosberg who needed to finish on the podium to become champion others applauded him for transforming what could have been a processional one-two into a tense spectacle

being ‘naive’ in asking Hamilton to speed up instructions the driver ignored Both Sides "I think Lewis was trying to back us up and I probably would have done the same" agreed Horner’s Dutch driver Max Verstappen "You have to try these things to win a championship" Rosberg championship secured could also see both sides of the argument "It’s really easy to understand the team’s side But at the same time of course you can understand Lewis because this is the world championship" he said From outside Formula One former England soccer striker Gary Lineker added his support: Don’t get
