A time travel tale from 1960 to 2019

What’s the story here ?

How Indian National Congress’s juggernaut was shaken violently after the emergency of 1975 by a coalition of unlikely bed buddies. The era of coalitions had arrived, but it would take another 30 years before one could really survive.

What’s the forecast?

India has seen even Juggernauts come and go. But, since currently, a juggernaut holds the helm, if history is any guide, Coalitions are coming, and probably so is instability.
