The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : No room for complacency

The article illustrates the impact of swime flu across the globe and how WHO responds to it. It does so by declaring it as a pandemic. Tough data assessment is necessary but WHO made a sensible decisionby asking reports for countries which have faced recent urgency only. This would really help them to fight against the disease and take the stress off them. As a result of past database and experience countries have learnt the importance of sharing it with world body. Concern is shown over countries when healthcare is weak. Moreover it will be difficult for some places to tackle the situation. The situation will raise the curtain on the preparedness of the world to fight against it.



Just started......do pour in tips for improvement!

A Calculated Risk (editorial 15th July)

This article deals with the Finance Minister's decision regarding 6.8% fiscal deficit. It can be justified given the current scenario and the overall objective of the government: Inclusive growth. The article goes on to show that the expectation to reduce it to 5.5 percentage by 2010 is tough given that it took the government 4 years to bring down the deficit it had in 2003-04 by around 1.2 percentage.

A calculated risk - editorial from the hindu dated 15-07-09

The article seeks to analyze the record high fiscal deficit presented in the recent budget. Though the finance minister's justification for such a high deficit appears in the right light, given the objectives of the spending, the promise of the return to the older deficit values have to be dealt with caution, given the previous records of how long it took for the earlier governments to reduce fiscal deficits and also what has been promised by the present government as the expected timeline of reduction

Symbols over substance?

Leaders can only be immortal if they r remembered by the common man. By putting statues and memorials what bhenji is doing is only reducing the amount of money that shud go to the people who were responsible for electing her. That is what will make her immortal.
Katchatheevu is settled

Both Indian and Sri Lankan govt. think that the issue of the Katchatheevu island is solved but the main issue is with indian fishermen demanding penetration into sri lankan waters for fishing. But this cannot be demanded. this is what is leading the local parties to keep on demanding the central govt. to talk with sri lanka.
Symbols over substance?
The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : Symbols over substance?
The article shares opinion about UP CM Ms. Mayawatis obsession for the memorials and statues. She is known as disciplined administrator, however spending 2000 crore Rs. on construction of memorials and reconstruction of already completed project is not reasonable. To justify this act of irresponsibly spending public money, UP Government compared the statues and memorials of Ambedkar and Kansi Ram with Nehru Memorial Centre in New Delhi, while The Nehru Memorial is a research centre of social science and one of the finest libraries of India. Undoubtedly, Ambedkar and Kansi Ram gave their astonishing contributions to uplift the status of Dalit in India, but the chauvinistic approach and symbolism is leading to squander Mayawatis good work which she has done in past and General Election 2009 reflected the voters feeling about it.
