It must indeed be a good feeling for the Indian Diaspora to see Rishi Sunak as the newest and youngest Prime Minister of Britain, bringing to end days of uncertainty and hopefully ushering in an era of stability. Only a couple of months back, Sunak ran a spirited but highly professional campaign to succeed Boris Johnson, only to find himself outwitted by Liz Truss, who only lasted for a very short period of time.

In political defeat then and victory now Sunak has shown in a short span of time that the need of the hour is unity in face of some highly challenging times for his country, domestically and in the realm of foreign policy. The quick turnaround in the political scene has not stopped a speculation that Britain may be heading for a general election. But that is for time to tell.
