विलियम शेक्सपियर ने कहा था, “अनईजी लाइज द हेड दैट वियर्स द क्राउन” यानी राजमुकुट कांटों से भरा होता है। नरेंद्र मोदी ने जश्न के बीच एक बार फिर पांच वर्ष के लिए पद संभालने की शपथ ली। चूंकि वह पूर्ण बहुमत के साथ सत्ता में लौटे हैं और यह उपलब्धि 48 वर्ष में कोई नहीं दोहरा पाया था, इसलिए देश और दुनिया को उनके निर्णायक नेतृत्व से काफी उम्मीदें हैं। पहले 100 दिन अहम होंगे, जब उनकी नीतियों की लकीरें मोटे तौर पर खींची जाएंगी। भारत की पाकिस्तान नीति ऐसी ही लकीर होगी, जिसे बहुत सावधानी के साथ खींचना होगा।
