Dr. Manmohan Singh and the Winds of Change

The quiet, soft spoken Prime Minister of India is on the verge of a hat trick of massive achievements if he gets the Jan Lok Pal Bill out with enough teeth. He was there as the Finance Minister to P.V. Narasihma Rao when India did away with the License Raj with the process of liberalisation that set the mood for a market oriented economy. He was there as the Prime Minister when the Right to Information Act was passed.
And now the Jan Lok Pal Bill.

Big achievements for someone who is seen as an ineffective Prime Minister. Mr. Singh can look back at his career with satisfaction.
