The last few days have witnessed renewed interest in Subhas Chandra Bose and many have reminisced and written on various aspects of his charismatic personality. He was once the idol of both young and old. His sudden disappearance and reports of ‘being seen’ and the probabilities of making a come-back had filled people with a sense of mystery. An alternative to the Congress was envisaged at that time by the younger generation and there was expectation in the air. A few pages of this issue explore these aspects.

Political changes in the country have not dimmed memories of the Swatantra Party and in some regions, its future prospects may still hold some promise. And these are explored in a three-part article on the history of the Swatantra Party in Gujarat by Dr. Usha Thakkar.

The issue also examines the state of the economy as it presents divergent perspectives from different angles in a thought-provoking article by Sunil Bhandare. And juxtaposed with the presentation by Dr. B. Ramesh Babu in his piece on Modi goes abroad again, we see the complexities of the Indian economic scene.

It is with a deep sense of reverence that we remember our Founder, Minoo Masani on his 17th death anniversary on the 27th of this month.
