From the time he has taken office in 2013, Raghuram Rajan is n the news for his greatly designed economic growth plans for India. He has been facing challenges and slashing them out of his way and has done it all in his inimitable style. This Stud from IIT Delhi with multiple prestigious awards from India and abroad is here to stay and guide India the good way. Here is why:

9.   He cut down interest base rates and suddenly the RBI revived its lost glory as the control point of India’s economic structure.

10.   He actually said this on record:”Crony capitalism is a big threat to countries like India- One widely held hypothesis is that our country suffers from want of a ‘few good men’ in politics. This view is unfair to the many upstanding people in politics. But even assuming it is true, every so often we see the emergence of a group, usually upper middle class professionals, who want to clean up politics. But when these ‘good’ people stand for election, they tend to lose their deposits. Does the electorate really not want squeaky clean government? “
