Guest | October 25, 2013
Why should an NRI become the least relevant of all Indians? Diaspora: the movement, migration, or scattering of a people away from an established or ancestral homeland We disperse, float away, settle in new lands – mostly by design but sometimes by default – and we take root. I am one such example. I did […] Continue Reading »

A high powered trade delegation from the European Union (EU) is due in Delhi next week. The visiting dignitaries are expected to call on the Union […]Continue Reading »

Have we tamed the animal that is the rupee-dollar exchange rate? The arrival of a new RBI governor seems to have clicked with the markets – stocks are up to near-all-time-highs, while bond markets have remained positive after some scary moves. The Rupee has reversed rapidly, down to the Rs 61 levels from the Rs […]Continue Reading »

Lethal ideas and insurgent memory
BooksGuest | October 25, 2013
A review of Neville Bolt’s The Violent Image. Insurgency is as old man’s first effort at organised government in the ancient river valleys of the Near East and Asia. Wherever some men imposed what they reckoned to be civilised order, other men saw only tyranny and took up arms in rebellion. The unequal contest of […]Continue Reading »

The biggest governance challenge for a new government will be re-creating the legitimate space for executive action. This Mint article is an interesting portrayal of the situation in the country today. I would strongly commend to you the paragraphs of the article on the Supreme Court, the CBI and the bureaucracy. The recent CBI decision to […]Continue Reading »

In the run up to the 2014 general elections, Paid News will probably be the easiest way out for media houses to make money. It is also the easiest way to lose credibility.

Fiscal Discipline in the States
In DepthPubEcon | October 18, 2013
Issues in measurement and use as a policy instrument. Even as the concerns are mounting about the Union government’s competence in managing public finances and more broadly fiscal risks, it may be useful to examine fiscal discipline in the states. Among the key issues are its measurement and its use as a policy instrument in […]Continue Reading »
Urbanisation in India
Infographic | October 18, 2013
If you go by the data released following Census 2011, India still lives in its villages. Only about 31 percent of India’s population lives in what are classified as urban areas. This infographic takes a closer look at this 31 percent. The urbanisation ratio by state: Delhi and Chandigarh are mostly urban. They are followed […]Continue Reading »
A dangerous narrative
GuestPerspective | October 11, 2013
For Baloch nationalists, the battle of narratives is as important as the struggle on the ground because classification of the Baloch struggle with the regressive TTP will do them more harm than any army can inflict. “I stood firmly with those who opposed Musharraf’s Balochistan operation and earlier the sending of the military into Waziristan,” […]Continue Reading »

The Union government, has squandered the opportunity to develop a proper transition plan in Andhra Pradesh and has instead chosen to make an ill timed political decision. The Congress led UPA Government finds itself in an Andhra pickle. Sentiments in non-Telangana Andhra – now called Seemandhra – are (chili) hot. A power shut down in […]Continue Reading »
