D. Dhanuraj and Rahul V. Kumar of Centre for Public Policy Research in India analyze the biggest-ever election in world history with 815 million eligible voters. In their AtlasOne article, they discuss the landslide victory of India's Prime Minister-elect, Narendra Modi. They say, “Given the enthusiasm among young voters, we may conclude they are conscious of the changing political dynamic. The middle class and youth preferred the economic-development agenda to caste and communal politics.” And Jagdish Bhagwati, who sits on the board of Atlas Network partner, Centre for Civil Society, analyzes what Modi needs to do to return India to a high-growth path in his article on The Times of India.
