Tasteful metaphors, poor politics 8.3.2018 Deccan Herald - Opinion
The recent political speeches about "rewriting history" and "unemployed people should sell pakodas" raises concerns about the quality of the ongoing political debate as well as the policies they will influence. Though the quality of debate and policy formulation exercise may seem orthogonal to each other, they pathologically reflect the contemporary organisational philosophies of the government and the opposition, together influencing the countrys long-term vision of growth and development. Jawaharlal Nehru and Atal Bihari Vajpayee, both feted as statesmen, were known for their oratory and remembered for their vision of nation-building through dams, IITs, the Golden Quadrilateral, etc. Not long ago, during NDAs stint in the opposition, Sushma Swarajs oratory made former speaker Meira Kumar apprehensive about the adabof Shayaris (polite gesture of sharing Urdu couplets) as she was "repaying a loan of one couplet with two couplets". Political speeches and debates should communicate in-depth analysis of an ...

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 ...
