India is in tumult after the government passed reforms that cut certain subsidies and loosened up controls on foreign investment entering the country, paving the way for big multi-brand retail chains like Walmart entering the market. Allies have threatened to abandon Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s ruling coalition, while opposition parties and activists took part in a nationwide strike against the reforms on Sept. 20 that saw protests and arrests in many of India’s major metropolises.
