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 ...

Day ahead of voting in Gujarat, BJP releases manifesto 8.12.2017 deccanherald.com
A day before the first phase of polling in Gujarat, the ruling BJP today released its election manifesto with a slew of promises for various sections of society, which included a resolve to "double" farmers income. Releasing the manifesto, BJPs election in-charge for Gujarat, Arun Jaitley, said it was prepared keeping in mind the partys resolution to maintain and improve on the 10-per cent growth clocked by the state under the partys rule. Unlike the 2012 manifesto, the BJP has chosen not to make any extravagant promises, as the present poll document largely revolves around "overall development" and "resolutions" instead of getting into details. In 2012, the Gujarat BJP, led by then chief minister Narendra Modi, had promised to construct 50 lakh houses in the next five years, which was the key highlight of the manifesto. The manifesto released today said it has resolved to "double farmers income through various means, such as cheap fertilisers and seeds, better irrigation, proper Minimum Support Prices ...

'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 ...

Bengaluru needs revamp of public transport system 30.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Megacities of the world have become engines of economic growth, witnesses of sprawling urbanisation and population explosion in recent decades. Indias capital, New Delhi, has virtually blacked out, thanks to a boom in vehicular traffic-led air pollution. The growth of income levels in all metropolitan cities is much higher than the average per capita income of the country. This shows that wealth concentration is highly polarised towards cities of the world, causing growing inequality in income distribution, on the one hand, and the pleasure for millions of owning a private vehicle, on the other. The per capita income of city dwellers is several times higher than that of rural households. Bengaluru is the countrys IT hub and the most dynamic city in the world, leaving behind Beijing, China, witnessing a rise in per capita income from a mere Rs 28,512 in 2001 to Rs 2,71,387 in 2015. This has directly influenced interest in owning private vehicles, particularly two-wheelers and cars, whose numbers have shot ...
