MAN OF THE MOMENT

In May, before India’s election results were announced, Time magazine came out with its annual list of the world’s “100 most influential people.” Narendra Modi, now India’s prime minister, was included. Not a surprise. “Modi has a reputation for quick action, encouraging the private sector, and good governance,” wrote author and TV host Fareed Zakaria in the magazine. “He also has a reputation for autocratic rule and a dark Hindu-nationalist streak. But those concerns are waning in a country desperate for change.” For more on Zakaria’s thoughts on Modi and the U.S. policy pertaining to him and India, read his recent column, reprinted in this issue of Khabar.

Other Indians included in Time100: writer Arundhati Roy, entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham, and politician Arvind Kejriwal. Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai and Pakistani-American Hosain Rahman, a tech entrepreneur, also made the cut this year.
