Whew....after a tension filled post election days of negotiations, coalition strategies, market slumps and anti-foreign PM protests India finally breathes a sigh of relief. Dr Manmohan Singh is the choosen man for the position of Prime Minister.
In Indian history for the first time the President and Prime Minister are both highly qualified and educated persons. The President Dr. Abdul Kalam is a scientist and Dr Manmohan Singh the PM elect is an economics professor. When he was the finance minister he was the key man for liberalising India's economic policies much on the lines of American economy model giving priority to private sector industries and investors.
The Indian President is a ceremonial head of state without much powers in the day to day activities of the nation. While most of the past Presidents did not involve in any activities to improve the nation Dr Abdul Kalam sidestepped usual protocols and started to meet school children encouraging them to study and strive harder. He even started to interact with students by responding to email messages sent to him.

Oh, I just know that before this India had been led by highly unqualified less-educated persons?
Education != degree.
