The legitimation crisis of Indian democracy
Will a disgruntled populace rely on one individual to work wonders or innovate new institutions when the democratic system itself is questioned?
Digital push must be disability-inclusive
As India catapults towards a digital economy, making ICT accessible to the disabled is a must.
Sharpen the focus on growth
If there has to be investment resurgence, it is necessary to create the climate which promotes this faith.
India must reaffirm its Paris pledge
This will make a difference to global climate outcomes in the context of U.S. recalcitrance under Trump.
Coping with summer
Heatwaves may become more frequent; good action plans can help prepare for the worst.
Wine and whimper
The Supreme Court order banning sale of liquor along highways is not fully thought out.
The pesticide threat to public health
A new report issued by the UN takes a controversial stance on synthetic pesticides.
Income Computation and Disclosure Standards (ICDS) do not resolve all the thorny issues on taxation. This can be attributed to a couple of reasons.
Nature Is A Person
Last month, a landmark judgment by the Uttarakhand High Court declared the rivers Ganga and Yamuna as legal persons. These are tremendous legal victories for environmentalists and indigenous communities, the world over. Now time to recognise this in our decision-making.
The wheel of social justice
New national commission for backward classes must address the gaps and lags in the Mandal project.
