Steal­ing the Show from Ra­jan, for a Change!

The Economic Times - - Money & Banking -

RBI Gover­nor Raghu­ram Ra­jan in­vari­ably man­ages to steal the show in any event he takes part in. But, re­cently, it was some­one else for a change, and even Ra­jan vouched for it. At a CII event, Sin­ga­pore’s deputy prime min­is­ter Thar­man Shan­mu­garat­nam, be­sides Ra­jan, ad­dressed a large au­di­ence, leav­ing many in awe with the clar­ity and el­e­gance of his dis­course on global mone­tary poli­cies, the im­pact of the Chi­nese econ­omy and ar­eas where In­dia and Sin­ga­pore could po­ten­tially par­tic­i­pate. So much so that Ra­jan said: “I have to say for this au­di­ence, some of whom may not know him, he is one of the cen­tral fig­ures in in­ter­na­tional meet­ings and he al­ways has some­thing orig­i­nal and in­ter­est­ing to say to the assem­bly.” No won­der, the city-state’s found­ing fa­ther Lee Kwan Yew took Shan­mu­garat­nam into his party’s fold.
