WASHINGTON: India is on the verge of "astounding" itself and the world as it is passionate about innovation and entrepreneurship and is experiencing a "growing vibrancy", a top American diplomat has said.
"India is on the verge of astounding itself and the world.
And the United States is ready to be a stakeholder and partner in that future," assistant secretary of state for economic and business affairs Charles H Rivkin said here on Wednesday.
Rivkin had recently led a high-powered US delegation that included representations from corporate sector to "India on the American Innovation Roadshow" to promote economic growth.
The road show was on four Indian cities New Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.
"I was so impressed by what I saw," Rivkin said in his remarks to Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a top American thinktank.
"In every incubator we visited, members of our delegation, especially the solar companies, identified tangible commercial and investment opportunities," Rivkin said.
Thanks to Manmohan Singh for bringing India on verge of astounding itself and world.
Manmohan Singh is the original and true architect of modern India....
Any other who claims to develop India need to look into their history before claiming any credit for India's progress..
The credit belongs to Narasimha Rao for opening up the economy. Manmohan Singh presided over the biggest scams we have ever seen.
Credit goes to the BJP and Modiji! He has done more in two years then Congress has done in 60 years!

Well, every person/leader out lives his/her usefullness. Even though Winston Churchill's leadership was instrumental in Britain winning world war 2, the British got rid of him soon after the war was over, Reason, he was a good wartime leader but somehow was not qualified to take Britain through the time after war. So similarly Manmohan Singh was a good for the 1990's but not for the current times.

What absolute RUBBISH! Manmohan Singh was probably the worst PM India has had in recent times. His tenure as PM is known for corruption, corruption and corruption everything from the Telecoms scandal to the Commonwealth Games proved he was worse than Useless! Donkeys like you will never admit that Modiji has done more in two years than the Congress has done in 60 years! Well done BJP!!!
