In Modi's India, will farmers (like soldiers) regain their significance

While sitting in a cab, my driver told me a very interesting story. He was a farmer and was farming potatoes until last year. He told me that farmers pay Rs. 400/quintal. And govt offered them the price of Rs. 300/quintal.

So all the farmers did not take out the potatoes as they would have to pay Rs. 100/quintal in that case. They thought these potatoes under the soil will at least act as fertilizers under the soil.

Raise your hands if you think this blurring of distinction is dangerous

That's the case with most of the startups. They sell everything lower than the cost price and Even then are unable to capture any market

Shouldn't there have been a public payments app in place ?

What interest does govt has in building it's own payment app when paytm servers the purpose well.

Modi also endorsed it

Role of Facebook and Twitter in shaping the elections

Instead of just being a medium, I think Facebook and Twitter have isolated people rather than getting more views to the table. For example, I am currently in North Carolina and I follow most local pages on Facebook. However, my entire feed is filled with "I hate Trump" posts despite the fact that Trump actually won NC. So I guess Facebook shows you only like minded people with like minded opinions. As a result, nobody really could see how Trump could even win with no support anywhere. So do Facebook and to an extension Twitter really act as echochambers rather than represent the truth ?

Labour market in India finally disrupted

Seems like India's labour is abandoning domestic work, gardening, daily labour, driving and queueing up in droves to deposit money in accounts. Beggars and vagabonds with nothing to lose are depositing even above 5 lacs in their accounts with little regard to the income tax law. After all, they have nothing to lose. Most marketplaces which teemed with daily laborers are empty as they are busy negotiating India's banking system.


Hope a good percentage remains in their account rather than go back to the sponsors.


A big thanks to Modiji.

We might be losing the race but manufacturing sector is extremely important to Indian Economy

I have got 3 points to say:

1.) India is going build huge infrastructure(roads, rails, metros, cities, ports, etc.). We are not going import steel and cement from China to build everything. We actually don’t have money to import everything, we need build domestically.

2.) India needs to become self reliant in technology and capital. Manufacturing can bring a lot of money (higher return on investment) and we will invest those extra money in our people. This can help us in achieving our goal.

3.) Many industries don’t become profitable in the West due to higher labor cost. China will slowly move towards efficiency and innovation driven industries. India can start manufacturing what China doesn’t want to manufacture.

Is Russia powerful enough to re-create a Cold War like situation?

A big foreign policy challenge awaiting the next U.S. President is the frosty relationship with an angry, resurgent Russia. Talk about a post-Cold War partnership between the world’s two greatest military powers is now a thing of the past.
