Telcos struggling to survive cash crunch 10.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
Anjana Das The telecom sector is passing through one of its toughest phases as service providers struggle to survive. It’s not a question of making profits, but survival in an atmosphere of consolidation and brutal competition. Director general of the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) Rajan Mathews in an interview with Anjana Das spoke about problems of debt, low profitability and losses in the sector. Excerpts: Some telcos have voiced the liquidity crunch in the sector, which is constraining them from meeting payment obligations to the government. What’s your take on this?

The illusion of control: How technology rules our lives 8.12.2018 Financial Chronicle
Back in the 1980s, going to the bank with my grandmother was about the most tedious part of my summer holidays in Calcutta. It was only the promise of tiffin cake afterwards that kept me from whining my way through the whole outing. Whiz forward in time to the present — my eight-year-old nibling has probably never even seen the inside of a bank, because, as far as they know, money comes from an ATM.

But then, that has been true at every juncture of history. Back when we were kids, the focus was on how (colour) television had changed socialisation patterns.
