    Rajiv Shah: Meet the Gujarati who may replace Nancy Powell as US Ambassador to India

    NEW DELHI: With US Ambassador to India Nancy Powell quitting, one of the names being considered as her replacement is Rajiv Shah, head of USAID. Rajiv Shah was Obama's pick for the job, the highest ranking Indian American in his cabinet and a Gujarati to boot.

    Shah, who is 41 years of age, was born in Ann Arbor Michigan to immigrant parents from India.

    Shah was sworn in on December 31, 2009. Shah is the 16th Administrator of USAID. According to the USAID website, "Shah managed the US government's response to the devastating 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; co-chaired the State Department's first review of American diplomacy and development operations; and now spearheads President Barack Obama's landmark Feed the Future food security initiative."

    Before becoming USAID's administrator, Shah served as undersecretary for research, education and economics, and as chief scientist at the US Department of Agriculture. At USDA, he launched the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, which significantly elevated the status and funding of agricultural research, says the USAID website.

    Prior to joining the Obama administration, Shah served for seven years with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, including as director of agricultural development in the Global Development Program, and as director of strategic opportunities.

    Originally from Detroit, Shah earned his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School and his master's in health economics from the Wharton School of Business. He attended the London School of Economics and is a graduate of the University of Michigan.

    In a sudden development, US Ambassador to India Nancy Powell on Monday resigned in the midst of general elections in India in which Narendra Modi is perceived to be a front runner for the post of Prime Minister.

    The announcement of her resignation to her colleagues in the US mission came a week after media reports here that she may be shipped out by the Obama Administration to "clean the state" with India. Powell has been in India for less than three years.

      70% Indians discontented, looking for change in leadership: US report

      NEW DELHI: Stung by the rising levels of dissatisfaction over the country's economic and political situation, a majority of Indians are looking for a change in political leadership in the upcoming polls, according to a report by a US-based think tank.

      "Nearly 70 per cent of the Indians surveyed have expressed dissatisfaction with the way things are going in the country at present, and this discontent is shared across the political spectrum. An overwhelming majority identified inflation, joblessness and inequality as the key challenges facing the country."

      "Looking ahead, by more than three-to-one, Indians prefer the Bharatiya Janata Party ( BJP), not the Indian National Congress (Congress) party, to lead the next government," Pew Research Center's Global Economic Attitude Director Bruce E Stokes said, quoting the findings of the study at an Ananta Centre session.

      On the foreign policy front, more Indians expressed a favourable view of the US notwithstanding recent high-profile bilateral friction.

      Interestingly, the study found division in public opinion about China, with more Indians favouring strong ties with Washington than to support improved relations with Beijing.

      The study, titled 'On Election Eve: Indians reflect on the nation and the world,' looked at Indian views towards the economy, their personal finances, the future of the economy and their children's future, the problems facing India at home and abroad and the Indian public's views of the US, China, Pakistan and other countries.
