The stars are calling... 9.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
By 2020, the average Indian will be just 29 years old, making India the worlds youngest country. Over 64% of Indias population will be in the working age group, while the population of western countries, Japan and China grows older and less active. This would unleash a workforce with immense potential and give Indias economy a massive boost. On the other hand, this could become a demographic disaster if enough jobs are not generated and infrastructure does not gear up to adequately support the growth potential. Will our youth get a chance to test their wings and build a better India and world? Will our current leaders and policymakers be able to provide them quality education and training to prepare them to face tomorrows challenges? Or, will Indias youth be bogged down by lack of healthcare and social security, and cut-throat competition, to get and retain jobs? India is already set to overtake China as the worlds most populous country. In the coming years, New Delhi is likely to become the worlds ...

A collage of cultures 6.12.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
In the pursuit of experiencing the colour and culture of India, Devendra Naik, a Mumbai-based photographer has been exploring the country. He's been lucky enough to have captured the nature’s people through the vision of his lenses. People, whom he terms as our ethnic cousins are very much a part of our heritage yet live far away from the hustle and bustle of our urban settings in the lap of mother nature. He encountered the Drokpas, the lost tribe of Alexander the Great at Dharchik village of Ladakh valley and keenly witnessed the beautiful culture of this secluded tribe. He also travelled to the dense jungles of Koraput and Malkangiri districts of Odisha to experience the lives of few of the most primitive tribes of our country, the Bondas and the Gadabas. He was fascinated by different facets of their culture, tradition and heritage, their sustainable lifestyle which is in perfect harmony with nature and froze his experiences through his photographs. Each of the images captures the essence of the way ...

'Bimaru' MP in the fast lane of growth 4.12.2017 DNA: Opinion
From being termed a Bimaru (laggard) state in the 90s to its roads being compared to those in the US by none other than its own chief minister, Madhya Pradesh is attracting a different conversation around its mention. But the CM's remark is not as facetious as it seems. In the last decade or so, the state government has constructed 1.75 lakh km of roads and connected all its villages. In fact, infrastructure has remained Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's primary focus ever since he took charge of the state in 2005. As per the official records of the state government, before 2003, the state generated 2,900 MW of electricity, which went up to 17,700 MW by 2017. Chouhan, however, himself admits that when it comes to education and health in the state, a lot needs to be done. In 2015, talking about his 10 years as a CM, Chouhan had told the media:"Though I am satisfied with the work done in the last 10 years, a lot still needs to be done to improve health and education scenario in the state. We have ...

Compensatory afforestation schemes are a charade 24.11.2017 DNA: Opinion
Development projects have been a cause of numerous conflicts in India as land, on which these projects are situated, is key for the survival of rural and urban communities who are otherwise economically and socially marginalised. This is most true in the case of forest areas, which support over 300 million people. As per India’s Forest Conservation Act, 1980, projects — be it industry, plantations, power or infrastructure — that require forested areas, need to undertake Compensatory Afforestation (CA). These forest plantations need to be raised over an equal amount of non-forest land or double the amount of degraded forest land, that is under the jurisdiction of the state forest departments. Land on which CA is to be done has to be earmarked before a final “forest clearance” approval can be granted to projects. However, securing land for CA is proving to be a great problem and government claims that, as a result, forest approvals and projects are being severely delayed. So, the environment ministry has a ...
