Permit Raj in a brand new avatar - Jaithirth Rao, Tehelka
In the bad old days before Narasimha Rao liberated us from the Licence Permit Raj, it took a minimum of three years (the average was closer to seven years) to obtain an industrial licence. Anyone who wanted to start a factory was treated as if he or she were a supplicant.

Verbatim

This is a proxy war and proxy war is a dirty war. It is played in a dirty way. The rules of engagements are there when the adversary comes face-to-face and fights with you. It is a dirty war.... That is where innovation comes in. You fight a dirty war with innovations. People are throwing stones at us, people are throwing petrol bombs at us. If my men ask me what do we do, should I say, just wait and die? I will come with a nice coffin with a national flag and I will send your bodies home with honour. Is it what I am supposed to tell them as chief? I have to maintain the morale of my troops who are operating there.In fact, I wish these people, instead of throwing stones at us, were firing weapons at us. Then I would have been happy. Then I could do what I (want to do).
