Being the first budget in 10 years by a non-UPA government and that, too, coming from a coalition with a crushing majority in the lower house, expectations were high of a massively reformist Budget that would give the somnolent economy the jolt it badly needed.

The BJP's earlier stint in power had it clashing repeatedly with the RSS on economic policy. The RSS harped on self-reliance, while the BJP-led government opened up several new sectors to FDI. A pragmatic Narendra Modi government is now setting the stage for neo-Swadeshinomics.

What Modi is slowly fashioning - and he has the support of some in Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh - is what I'd call neo-swadeshinomics. The tenet of self-reliance is getting nuanced into \"what's good for India\"

The two leaders met for nearly an hour and touched upon a host of issues from terror to trade-which are also linked.

The new BJP government has its hands full, with an economy on the skids and an imbalanced fisc. Business leaders are hopeful that quick decision-making will replace the policy inaction that weighed down the second avatar of the Congress-led UPA-II.

One of the foremost expectations from the new government would be to bring inflation under control, which to a large extent has been driven by supply side constraints, an issue that has mostly gone unaddressed under UPA.

Yes, the Gandhis are like religion in Amethi, people will vote for the Gandhis -and when you ask them why - the reasons vary from adulation of Rajiv Gandhi to a feeling of responsibility towards the 'bahu and beta' of Amethi. Almost no one will speak about the work done by the Gandhis.

Amethi tops from the bottom in almost all indicators. Only in infant mortality rate, it is in the top three. Even Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Act, which is Rahul Gandhi's pet project, Amethi is amongst the five worst performing districts.

So, what gets the Gandhis the votes? India is feudal at heart and brain, and Amethi residents have been encouraged to remain that way. The 'mai-baap', 'raja-praja' politics thrive in the area.

One of the main reasons is the dominance of caste, religion and identity-based politics in the state. Muslims, for instance, have typically voted for Mulayam Singh Yadav's SP or the Congress while the backward castes have supported Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party BSP and the BJP has traditionally relied on the upper castes.

The Indian economy looks more vulnerable in the coming months and quarters than is made out to be. A bad monsoon in a world of slowing global demand, for instance, can lead to all kinds of things like a fisc out of control and a ratings downgrade - a nasty surprise for the next Indian prime minister.
