Manmohan Singh the Indian PM is riddle wrapped in an enigma hidden in a mystery to many Indians He was the FM in the Narasimha Rao Government and later after the “sacrifice” by Rajiv Gandhi’s widow Sonia Gandhi has become for 10 odd years one of oddest and seemingly powerless PMs of Indian history The other Congress PMs have all been from the Nehru Gandhi family with the exception of Sashtri (1 year) and Narasimha Rao (5 years) He’s a Cambridge Man and got there on a scholarship
Before moving on to Manmoohan and his links with the Rothschilds heres a bit on LYNNE AND EVELYNE ROTHSHCILD.When 67-year-old British banking scion Sir EVELYN ROTHSCHILD first set eyes on 44-year-old LYNN FORESTER(another crypto Jewess ) at the 1998 BILDERBERG CONFERENCE—the MATCHMAKER was none other than HENRY KISSINGER— she was already a woman of major means. A CORPORATE LAWYER and telecommunications entrepreneur, the sparkly blond ex-wife of former New York politician ANDREW STEIN had made more than $100 million from the sale of cleverly acquired wireless broadband licenses. She was also sexy, charming, and dazzlingly well connected. Two years later, after the smitten Sir Evelyn divorced his second wife, Victoria Schott,the mother of his three children, Forester became the third Lady Rothschild. After marrying in November 2000 at a London SYNAGOGUE, they HONEYMOONED AT THE WHITE HOUSE, GUESTS OF LYNN’S GOOD FRIENDS BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON. Yes they HONEYMOONED in the White House—————–Met at a Bilderberg Conference Hooked up by Kissinger and Honeymooned in the WHITE HOUSE
Lets Begin with THIS INTERVIEW in the online magazine UPSTART The Interview took place on October 5, 2007, The World According to Lynn Forester de Rothschild and the interviewer is Lloyd Grove
L.G.: You mentioned E.L. Rothschild, which is the company that you run, you’re the C.E.O. of. What does it do? I know you have investments in India, which we’ll talk about, but what is the idea for the company?
L.R.: The idea for the company is to essentially be a holding company for our global interests, but LARGELY FOCUSED ON INDIA. So the company oversees our investment in the Economist, for instance, in the U.K.OUR MOST ACTIVE ACTIVITY IS IN INDIA. I sold my last business in June 2000; Evelyn retired as chairman at N.M. Rothschild in 2002.—— In 2003,——— we both decided that we wanted to do another major business, and we wanted to do it together, and so we stepped back and looked at where in the world and what industry would be a growth situation. AND WE DECIDED THAT ASIA WAS GOING TO BE THE NEXT SPURT OF REAL GROWTH.We were agnostic between China and India,SO WE SPENT A YEAR GOING TO BOTH COUNTRIES, having meetings with whoever would meet with us.
L.G.: In both countries?
L.R.: In both countries. It started out with both countries, but within about four months, five months, we decided to limit ourselves to India. Part of that was that in 2003, $49 billion of foreign direct investment had gone into China, and $4.9 billion had gone into India. And on a macro level, if China is better, or was better, it wasn’t 10 times better. So our opportunity seemed better just financially.ALSO, WE WERE MORE COMFORTABLE WITH DEMOCRACY. We were more comfortable with rule of law.There’s the obvious British-Indian link culturally that was important for Evelyn and interesting for me,SO WE BEGAN FOCUSING ON INDIA.
—————————Now back to our famous Lynn Rothshcild interview ————————
.L.G.: And how did you hit upon the export of fresh fruits and vegetables? I’ve looked at your history. I don’t see any of that in your history unless you have a mean kitchen garden in the country.
L.R.: [Laughs.] Well Evelyn was the closest that we got to agriculture. He’s a gentleman farmer in England. But in that process that I was describing to you, one of the first questions to people would be: So what is the next opportunity? What’s next, what’s needed, and what’s big? And from different sources, consultants, businesspeople, we would be given this series of facts about the agricultural sector-that 40 percent of all produce in India goes to waste That China has 60 percent of the arable land of India, but it’s 40 percent more productive because of technology. That India is the largest producer of fruits, No. 1 in the world, No. 2 in vegetables, and has only 1 percent of the export market. And if the retail sector isn’t ready to buy higher-quality fruit and vegetables, which I always thought they would be-but three years ago, it was less obvious than now-YOU COULD EXPORT THEM AND BE THE LOWEST-COST EXPORTER.
L.G.: So you can export them to parts of Asia and Europe?
L.R.: Yes, and Japan.
L.G.: I see where you have you established this agricultural research center-is that now up and running?
L.R.: Yes, yes, it’s up and running.
L.G.: With the 300 acres that you’re experimenting with, using farming techniques that work well in India, have you started to show Indian farmers the techniques?
L.R.: Yes, yes, it started and IT WAS OPENED BY THE PRIME MINISTER [MANMOHAN SINGH]. IT WAS LAST YEAR. HE SHOWED UP FOR THE RIBBON CUTTING, AND HE MADE AN INCREDIBLY MOVING SPEECH. THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER IS REALLY, TO ME, ONE OF THE SPECTACULAR PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, and I’ve seen him speak many times, and he always reads his speech. That day, he put down his speech and he recited a poem, an English poem that he had learned as a young boy about how the land will give to the people and will change lives—a beautiful poem. And then he talked about being so poor that he couldn’t afford shoes—his parents were farmers—and how his dream for India is that 600 million people could be lifted out of poverty. And we’re talking about lifting them from 50 CENTS A DAY TO $2 A DAY. ( From dirt poor the gracious Roths have turned millions of Indians to simple poor Until that is someone starts producing Cheaper food at which point the Roths would move their generosity there )
L.G.: What else will you do with E.L. Rothschild?
L.R.: We are also looking very seriously at the RETAIL SPACE IN INDIA, both in terms of front-end retail as well as Indian brands that we believe have opportunities. I think that’ll be the next area where you’ll see some announcements from us.
L.G.: Give me a hint. I know you’re on the Estée Lauder board,and I know you’re very interested in luxury goods in India. Would it have something to do with that?
L.R.: Well, we’re looking at those. You know India has luxury in its DNA. All you’ve got to do is look at the maharajas and look at the Taj Mahal. There’s no Hermès or Louis Vuitton that’s going to tell India anything about luxury.LUXURY IS A VERY INTERESTING, UNDEVELOPED PIECE OF INDIA. I don’t think it will be a big piece for a long time, because of the income level, but I think it’s interesting. We do think luxury when we think retail, but we also think more MAINSTREAM, ASPIRATIONAL BRANDS AND OPPORTUNITIES
L.G.: And the country obviously has an exploding middle class, so that could be a good market internally-or are you thinking for export as well?
L.R.: I am thinking more about the domestic markets, more about the growth of the domestic market, because 10 million people are entering the middle class every year in India. You know, there are more billionaires in India than anyplace else. Let me put it this way: Every day in India, the entire nation of Great Britain is on the train, one way or another. So the numbers are pretty colossal. SEVENTY MILLION PEOPLE IN INDIA CAN AFFORD ANYTHING THEY WANT. It’s a small percent, but that’s a reasonable number.
L.G.: That’s a pretty healthy market.
L.R.: Two hundred fifty million are middle-class, so you might not go for the Chanel glasses, but you sure could go for an Estée Lauder lipstick or a Starbucks coffee. (BOTH JEW OWNED BRANDS )
Now Cut back to the Present and let’s go on a flashback ————In 2002 as the LEADER OF OPPOSITION in the RS Manmohan Singh had opposed FDI The BJP leader Advani produced a letter showing Manmohans opposition Come 2012 and Manmohan as PM and as Lady Rothshcilds SPECTACULAR PERSON turns 360 degress and expressed his open and complete support to FDI IN RETAIL
Manmohan made a series of shady deals with corrupt regional parties opposing the deal and managed to get it passed The press oblinginly spoke of NOTHING BUT WALMART (Gentile owned ) Emboldened by the victory over the issue of FDI in retail in Parliament, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday hit out at opponents, saying they ARE “IGNORANT” ABOUT GLOBAL REALITIES OR ARE CONSTRAINED BY “OUTDATED IDEOLOGIES”
As a small token of their appreciation for the SPECTACULAR PM the Rothschild Eranda Foundation has started a Scholarship for Indian students in the Cambridge University,under/on MM Singh’s name.The Manmohan Singh Undergraduate Scholarship fund has received endowments from Sir Evelyn and Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild (through the Eranda Foundation) and the Sunil Bharti Mittal-led company Bharti Airtel (through the Bharti Foundation). The fund will also receive “substantial funding” from Cambridge Assessment
Whether the Roths have left a more SUBSTANTIAL APPRECIATION TO MANMOHAN IN SOME OFFSHORE ISLAND ONLY THEY AND HE KNOW
