India has a new prime minister: Narendra Modi. The Hindu nationalist was elected last week as India's next leader, winning by the widest margin in 30 years. The controversial leader - who denies he encouraged the mob violence in 2002 that killed 1,000 people, most of them Muslims - has promised to revive an Indian economy plagued by high inflation and corruption.
