राजनीति को दिशा दिखाती अर्थनीति, लोकतांत्रिक जड़ों को कर रही है मजबूत (दैनिक जागरण)

[राजीव कुमार] जब 16वीं लोकसभा का अंतिम सत्र संपन्न हुआ तो इस सदन की कार्यवाही देखते हुए मुझे अपार गर्व की अनुभूति हो रही थी। हमारा देश इकलौता तो नहीं, लेकिन उन चुनिंदा देशों में जरूर है जिन्होंने द्वितीय विश्व युद्ध के बाद स्वतंत्रता हासिल की और इन सात दशकों के दौरान अपनी लोकतांत्रिक जड़ों...

The 2-3 ODI series loss to Australia is evidence that such talk may be premature, and that India needs to address certain...

What happened to poverty estimation in the country (Livemint)

Himanshu The tenure of the incumbent National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has seen a sharp deterioration in the quality and credibility of the official statistical system.

Airport anthropology and new behavioural patterns (Livemint)

There’s no place like large city airports to get a sharp yet nuanced sense of what India today is all about. In cities with two terminals, this is especially true of “low cost” terminals rather than the newer “global” ones, which are great to experience, but lack an Indian soul—just like those very upmarket shopping...

The release of yet another report on jobs growth has been held back, raising fresh concerns over data being fudged under a spin-happy political regime. Reportedly, the Labour Bureau’s survey on the number of jobs created under the Mudra loan scheme won’t be made public until the national elections are over. The main reason cited...
