With much dirty linen washed in public, the attention now shifts to the 19 November RBI board meeting
It’s that time of the year when the capital’s air turns foul and a dark pall hangs over the city. A darker cloud seems to have settled on Raisina Hill, which houses the offices of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union finance minister Arun Jaitley. Media leaks from within those offices seem to indicate battle axes are being sharpened; the rising crescendo of drumbeats also increasingly suggests that 19 November will be a day of reckoning when evil will be vanquished and the world will be set to rights. Increased belligerence has converted what used to be a private, genteel joust into a gladiatorial pastime.
