Hail, Mr Modi!

The coronation is over, it is time to see what one can reasonably expect from the man whose rise to prominence has been unmatched in recent history. 

The coronation of the “Dharti Putra” is over – the ceremony, though not on the scale of the Delhi Durbar, was still impressive enough with the 4,000-odd invitees, much like the Maharajas at the previous coronation, seated according to their hierarchy. The backdrop was, of course, more impressive than the flood plain of the Yamuna in 1911, where, incidentally, the decision to construct the new capital was announced; the ceremony this time took place with the architectural legacy of that “monumental” decision as the backdrop.

Now that the new order is in place, the cabinet announced and the media obsession with who’s in and who’s out is over, it is time to see what one can reasonably expect from the man whose rise to prominence has been unmatched in recent history.
