As a student of management, I learn (or try to) the rather beguiling art and science of how to be in charge of, or ‘manage’ things. It is a rather curious subject really, this thing we call management. In fact, we are all self-professed experts on the subject, especially out here in India. We all think that we can manage everything, but can we really? Can we really manage a country of over 1.2 billion people, with an uncountable number of disparate sensibilities? Can we really manage all that? Well, one man thinks he can. That man is none other than Narendra Modi.

Voting rights of Muslims should be revoked to stop vote-bank politics, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has said in an article slamming AIMIM leaders Asaduddin and Akbaruddin Owaisi for polarising the community.
In the article published in the latest issue of the Shiv Sena’s mouth-piece Saamna, Raut, also a Rajya Sabha member, addressed All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Owaisi as “Owaisi bhai from Hyderabad” and said: “As long as Muslim votes are for sale, the community will remain backward and its leaders will become rich.”
In the article written in Marathi, he said it was because of this that Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray had said “voting rights for Muslims should be taken away”.
“Owaisi bhai is doing politics of Muslim votes and we don’t know if it will benefit him or the community, but it will harm the country,” Raut said in the write-up.
