Given India's growing political and economic importance to Australia there is far too little political reporting on India in the Australia press and internet. In comparison we public, for example, are inundated with news about even small shifts in Israeli politics.

This article combines high grade reporting and analysis of likely generational changes in India's politics.

Widespread corruption on Prime Minister Singh's watch and inertia in Indian Defence are unfortunately national constants, likely to outlast Singh's departure.

Well said and good report.

plantagenet you expect too much, how can our media provide coverage of this part of the world? they don't produce english press releases for AP to send to Australia's new desk to be copy and pasted or voiced over.
ABC and SBS are almost at joke status, fit only for covering pie eating contests in the best locations of coarse New York, London and Sydney. While the rest just want to talk about themselves and what is trending on tweeter.

I'd rather give my 6 cents a day to the BBC, i've got the internet at home so why pay abc to stream it for me.

A very generic article on Mr. Modi. I have to give the benefit of doubt that Australian media do not preoccupy themselves with Indian politics as much as other world politics. Anyways, people reading this, and the person who wrote this article, need to be aware that when you quote Mr. Aakar Patel from Hindustan Times in your article automatically you lose a lot of credentials. That author simply pukes bollocks about Mr. Modi and keeps provoking people of Gujarat about 2002 riots.
Mr. Modi has been a revolutionary leader since 2002. He will become the Prime Minister next year and will take Indian economy upwards and onwards.
