The first part examines the assembly elections that have thrown surprises both at the Congress and the BJP in five Indian states. This part also elucidates the vision that a former legislator has for Mangaluru, a coastal town in Karnataka. There is a short memoriam written on George Fernandes, one of the Indian Socialist leaders. A short portrait of Priyanka Gandhi, the newly inducted General Secretary of East UP is attempted alongwith her chances of changing the fortunes of Congress Party.

The other two parts dealing with India’s foreign relations and South Asian politics cover visits to India by Norwegian PM, South African President, Maldivian President and Bhutan PM. There is an analysis on the recently held elections to the Bangladesh Parliament, dubbed as ‘battle of Begums’.
