South Africa, the rainbow nation, is an economic engine for the African continent. Former President Dr. Nelson Mandela gave a a stable and towering leadership to the country after the end of an era of apartheid that lasted 342 years. The first general election held in 1994 gave the African National Congress (ANC) a thumping victory in seven out of nine provinces. A coalition comprising of the ANC, Inkatha Freedom Party and the National Party (pro-apartheid) formed the first democratic government. What was the mood of the nation? What were the aspirations of the people? How they looked at the Politics? What has bee the contribution of the people of Indian origin, their apprehensions and their relations with the political parties? Answers to these and many other questions are sought through this first hand account of the author's visit to South Africa in which he traveled Pretoria, Johannesburg, Capte Town, interviewed a number of ministers, members of Parliament, academicians, lawyers, bureaucrats, journalists and people of Indian origin.
