To me Nitish Kumar is the most exciting, most promising politician on the planet today. And I am so proud of him for making the bold move he just made. India is not, should not, can not be a country where thousands of Muslims get slaughtered in a riot and there are no consequences. An India where Hindu supremacy acquires currency is not going to be a great country and most certainly not a global power. India by now can aspire to being a global power, and the Hindu supremacist ideology could get in the way.

India can not become a global power, a global player like China already is if it is not at peace with Pakistan. India and Pakistan deserve to have normal relations. The French and Germans trade with each other and travel to each other's countries freely. That is what India and Pakistan need to get to. And I believe Imran Khan and Nitish Kumar could bring that about.

It is also about economic growth. What Nitish has done for Bihar would be akin to Alabama becoming the top economy in America: has never happened. Nitish is magic. And he deserves to be at the helm in India. He deserves to be in Delhi.

The Congress party's incumbency gets in the way and Modi gets in the way of the BJP. Neither of those are going to be able to cross the 150 mark in 2014. One of them very likely might go below 100. The regional parties in power have no option but to get behind Nitish, the best performing Chief Minister in their ranks. And then the Congress gets to become the new SP, the big party that throws outside support.
