India Rising: Fresh Hope, New Fears, a book written by a Singaporean journalist, captures the salient points in the one decade that Manmohan Singh held the prime ministership of India.
The 384-page book is authored by Singapore Straits Times associate editor for global affairs Ravi Velloor, who has spent 36 years in journalism, about half of them in India.
Manmohan from the Congress Party was Prime Minister between 2004 to 2014. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) then came into power when it won the general election under the leadership of Narendra Modi.
Singapore Emeritus Senior Minister (ESM) Goh Chok Tong launched the book on April 22.
In an article published in the ST, Ravi, 58, said there was some cause to believe that the vast South Asian nation might be at a few key inflexion points – the “fresh hope” part in his book’s title.
