POLITICS AND INDIA: A DEEP EMOTIONAL CONNECT

India will hold its national elections in the next 12 months. Indians love their politics and emotions are sure to get charged up. The evening news will be full of shouting matches, charges and counter-charges, lies, promises, and the obligatory fake news. There will be political discussions on social groups and disagreements will flare up into personal insults, fights, people leaving the group, old friends being unfriended or blocked--the whole drama.

TIME FOR INDIAN VOTERS TO WAKE UP

Governments never learn--only people learn. Voting, therefore, is a right best exercised by people who have taken time to learn about the issues It will soon be election time in India--a season for meaningless rhetoric and false promises. Politicians will outdo each other in making irresponsible statements about a lot of things. A big hot-button issue will be corruption. Politicians will attack each other as corrupt, yet as every Indian [...]

INDIA NEEDS LEADERS NOT POLITICIANS

We need leaders not in love with money but in love with justice. Not in love with publicity but in love with humanity. Leaders who can subject their particular egos to the pressing urgencies of the great cause of freedom…..a time like this demands great leaders. — Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. As India gets ready to vote in twelve months, Dr King’s inspiring words from 1956 become even more [...]

DOES INDIA’S SHAME-BASED CULTURE ENCOURAGE WRONDOING?

The recent rape and brutal murder of an 8-year old girl in Kathua ( Jammu ) have been universally condemned. What is equally shocking is that many politicians and lawyers whose oath of allegiance is to fight for justice came out in support, not of the girl and her family, but the alleged killers. Is this a manifestation of a cultural bias towards how people view right and wrong? Anthropologist [...]

SKILLING MODERN INDIA’S WORKFORCE

Education and skill development fulfil two goals simultaneously: an economic goal to provide businesses with a skilled workforce necessary to enhance productivity, improve competitiveness and increase economic growth, and a social goal of creating employment, reducing poverty and inequality and helping people realize their potential. Traditionally, education and skills-development policy have largely been driven by the state, but evidence now points to serious flaws in that model. The fast-moving modern [...]

MORE SELF-RESPONSIBILITY, NOT MORE REGULATIONS

You signed on to Facebook, voluntarily. You posted information on it freely. You liked other people’s posts and commented on them willingly. You connected with friends and updated your information and activities on Facebook without any coercion, and you were free to stop posting information whenever you wanted. It was your choice to keep your account active. No one from Facebook called or coerced you to sign up for Facebook [...]

INCOME INEQUALITY: FACTS AND FICTION

There is a world of difference between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal It appears fashionable these days to blame capitalism for all that ails modern society including inequality, environmental problems, global warming, extinction of animal species, unemployment, healthcare costs etc. Everything miserable is somehow caused by capitalism. One thing is clear: those who articulate these views have no knowledge of either history or economics, and their [...]

INDIA NEEDS PRINCIPLES NOT POLICIES

I hate watching evening debates on Indian television. Besides the uncontrolled shouting and the lack of intelligent and respectful discussion, it is always a slugfest about policies and rarely about principles. Most Indians would be hard-pressed to identify the set of principles that guide the different political parties. Election manifestos are a worthless listing of populist programs and not compelling documents of a party’s guiding and uncompromising principles. But, if [...]

CRYPTOCURRENCIES: MONETARY FUTURE OR FAD

Imagine a world with no controls on how you exchange money with people. There are no global boundaries on where goods and services are produced and you can use a ‘global currency’ to purchase anything anywhere without the help of a third party and no transaction costs. And since the currency is not controlled by a government, you have total freedom on how and where you spend your hard-earned money [...]
