Modi: A Watchman in Control

Given its very high ratings, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s victory in the 2014 general election was rather predictable — and still it caused a sensation: The BJP managed to win as many as 282 seats in the 543-seat Lok Sabha, the lower house of the bicameral Indian parliament, and virtually become the sole political leader in the ‘world’s largest democracy’. Compare this with the 159 seats that the BJP, also known as the Saffron Party, ended up with after the previous vote in 2009. The dramatic improvement was attributed by many to the charisma of leader Narendra Modi, who took over as prime minister. Now, the self-proclaimed chowkidar, or watchman, looks back at what was done during his first term in office. Expert views are mixed, with some considering it very successful and others expressing doubts.

    About BRICS Business Magazine

    BRICS Business Magazine is a bookazine —

    a book-like magazine – addressed to global investors, businessmen, politicians, and experts.


    A business and humanitarian publication on rapid-growth markets, it is issued four times a year and explains how to understand others.


    The goal of this project is to organize a direct information exchange between the BRICS countries and other emerging markets.


    We define a bookazine as a thick magazine with complex printing which is designed for slow reading and filled not in accordance with a constant set of sections, but rather in accordance with the topics chosen. Our bookazine includes (with occasional exceptions) three main kinds of data:

    • essays and columns that would fit into “Opinions” or “Recommendations” sections
    • indices, ratings, and rankings
    • business cases

    Industry and event projects as well as investment guides are featured as special add-ons.
