Disequilibrium: DISTURBIA 13.10.2018 Financial Chronicle

Skilling and vocational development is crucial to arrest this emergent trend line as this peculiar strand of xenophobia against economic migrants takes shape leading to greater social disorder and unrest in India. With as many as 139 million moving about in India, it is leading to employment and economic displacement which comes with an attendant backlash Even as agriculture’s contribution over the years has diminished, the emphasis on services has been overplayed. In many ways, services acquired an altogether new hue, becoming the hot button item in India’s economic march.

Delhi: Trapped 2.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Faizan and Sehmat, like thousands of young men, travelled to Delhi to earn a living. But, the dream of pulling out their families from abject poverty was short-lived for the duo from Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. They were killed in a fire at an illegally-run cloth manufacturing unit in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar in Shahdara last month.

Locals say there are around 5,500 of these without any escape mechanism in case of emergencies. Since the beginning of this year, seven major fires broke out in such illegally-run units in the Capital, killing at least 28 labourers. Six fires claimed casualties and four broke out in April alone. The most recent one was the 18 hour-long blaze in South Delhi's Malviya Nagar in an illegally-run rubber warehouse.
