Cleaning up the Augean stable of bank books, Narendra Modi may emerge as the modern-day Hercules.
The Greek mythological hero Hercules had to perform twelve labours for King Eurystheus. The fifth one was to clean up King Augeas' stables. Augeas had 3000 cattle in the stable, which had not been cleaned for 30 years. Move over from the land of mythology to reality–glancing upon Narendra Modi, the 'tea-seller turned Prime Minister' of India. Among the labours undertaken by Modi, one may quickly count five – dismantling the Lutyen's Delhi brand cronyism in governance of the nation, bringing in India in the canvas of global diplomacy, introducing a uniform goods and services tax in India, putting a halt to the generation of black money and the fifth one is, having a transparent insolvency and bankruptcy code to clean the balance sheets of India's public sector banks, which have not been effectively touched in the last 70 years.
