Raghuram Rajan's decision to bid goodbye to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on completion of his three-year tenure as the central bank governor has been largely received with a sense of frustration while some seem saddened about the former IMF chief economist's decision to return to academics after his current term ends on September 4.
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
Rajan's departure means that the Modi government has lost the services of a hugely talented mind. #RaghuramRajan

One way of looking at #RaghuramRajan story: War on crony capitalism is over. Full normalcy restored. Capitalism lost, cronies won.
