what parochial? If he has to be true to his American citizenship, he has to raise the dollar to 100 rupees, ?not lower it.
Where does his allegiance lie?
This is an obvious conflict of interest.

Subject: Next Governor of the Reserve Bank of India
Raghuram Govind Rajan (Tamil:??????? ??????? ?????) (born 3 February 1963) is an American economist who has been appointed the next Governor of the Reserve Bank of India.
Samir Kelekar posted the following on his timeline on Facebook
"what the heck is this? A US citizen made RBI governor? The guy must step down however brilliant he may be,"
Again, I ask (see below), "Do we not want the best candidates for our top jobs?"
If you may recall . . .? recently the Bank of England appointed the then current Governor of the Bank of Canada Mark Carney, a Canadian, to be its Governor. A non-Briton!
If old establishments can change why not the newer ones?
I think it will help if we stop being so parochial in our thinking.
