India International Centre (IIC) claims that it is India’s “premier” cultural institution. Delhi is dotted with several institutions that are modelled on IIC. These in turn are controlled by elites of Delhi who in turn manipulate every thought, idea and design about India.
The 3D vision – Develop, Decentralise and Decontrol, has left our Delhi elites flummoxed. That, substantially if not wholly, explains their antipathy to Modi’s spectacular rise.

In a record of sorts, for the first time in the history of LIC, the then sitting Chairman TS Vijayan was not given an extension to complete the one-and-a-half years of his remaining period of service. Worse still, a secret note of the Ministry of Finance indicates the original proposal to ideally demote him to the position of Managing Director on his completion of tenure on May 2, 2011.
Strangely a person who was considered unfit in 2011 to be a Chairman of LIC and in the view of the Ministry of Finance, considered inappropriate to be appointed even as the Managing Director of LIC was short-listed in late 2012 for the post of IRDA – the insurance regulator which ultimately controls LIC! Gallingly, the Finance Minister in January 2013 goes on to select TS Vijayan in view of his “splendid record.”
