PM Manmohan Singh- The Leader Other Leaders Love

New York: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh tops Newsweek magazine's list of 10 world leaders who have won respect and is described as "the leader other leaders love" though India figures at 78th place in the list of 100 best countries.
The Indian Prime Minister was described as a sophisticated former economist, who has played a key role in the country's emergence as one of the rising powers of the 21st century, engineering the transition from stagnant socialism to a spectacular takeoff in the global economy.
77-year-old Singh, who is into his seventh year in office, has played a "key role in India's emergence as one of the rising powers of the 21st century."

In an article titled "The Leader Other Leaders Love", the magazine said the economist-turned-politician Singh, engineered the transition "from stagnant socialism to a spectacular takeoff in the global economy."
"But it's Singh's unassuming personal style that really inspires awe among his fellow global luminaries, who praise him for being modest, humble, and incorruptible," the magazine said in the article.
It also quotes former International Atomic Energy Agency director-general and Egyptian presidential challenger Mohamed ElBaradei as saying that "the soft-spoken Singh is the model of what a political leader should be."
Besides Singh, British Premier David Cameron, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Brazilian President Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva and Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah bin Abdel Aziz al-Saud also figure in the list.

However, India figures 78 in the list of 100 best countries in the world with a score of 55.70 out of 100.
The rank was based on five categories of national well-being, education, health, quality of life, economic competitiveness, and political environment.

Please pray for my sister Sonia. She has a lump in her throat. Had a test done yesterday. They poked three needles into her and drew out stuff. Very painful and scary. The test report will come next week. She lives far away in the state capital. We are anxious for her.

I have prayed for your sister Sonia. By the stripes of Jesus, she is healed. Amen. Prime Minister Singh is indeed a very well loved and respected leader of your country. He brought India to the rank of the highly industrialized countries of the world although India's imminent status has not trickled down to the impoverished masses at the countryside. India is beset with centuries old superstition and polytheism that hamper its march toward self sufficiency and economic well being. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.


Thanks for sharing that most interesting information about
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

I'll be praying for your sister.

Dear Amrita,
I like elder leaders. They have lived a long life and have gained wisdom the younger lacks.
India is lucky to have an elder and respected leader.
It will not be for long, a decade or two, before India will range much higher on the world scale.

I have said a prayer for Donia, and I am hoping for the best.
Yours Felisol

Seven years is not enough time to change everything? I like that he is incorruptible - who would think a politician could have that label?
I am sorry to hear about your sister.
