Time for Educational Transformation!

Our government is involved in filmy coincidences these days. In 2018, a political action drama Telugu movie was released titled 'Dashing CM Bharat' starring Mahesh Babu. In the story, the newly elected CM imposed heavy fines on those breaking traffic rules. Sometime after that, the government introduced heavy monetary penalties for traffic rule violations. Now, just a few weeks ago, a video went viral on social media in which an IAS officer was seen saying not so good things about our education system. And, here we are today witnessing the New Education Policy 2020 that has been introduced by the government. Now, whether films are being made to inspire the government or government is itself getting inspired by the films/social media, it is all worth it until doing good for common people.

National Education Policy 2020

The New National Education Policy made us wait for the last 34 years. It was in 1986 that the present curriculum came into existence. In Indian politics, the subject of education has mostly remained at the back foot because it wasn’t vote fetching. Why should one think about the children who aren’t even eligible to vote might be the understanding for the politicians sitting in our Parliament. BJP had this change for policy in their manifesto since 2014.

New Advertising Strategy of Chinese Smartphones

In marketing, there's a concept called 'Localization.' According to this concept, a company customizes its product based on the needs of the market in which it is selling. A classic example of this is the introduction of 'Mc Aloo Tikki' burger by McDonald's in India. By the way, it was not innovation or some positive marketing strategy, but McDonald's was forced into this. After McDonald's introduced its classic Beef Burger in India, it had to face mass retaliation as it had inadvertently hurt Indians' sentiments. But, then it introduced a range of localized products, and you see, it's working for it fine now.

Dramatically declining unemployment rate in India.

In the last few weeks, certain things have changed. The nationwide lockdown got over and India entered Unlock 1.0 and then Unlock 2.0.

The slump is still going on and something which shot up as a result was unemployment. During the lockdown, the unemployment rate touched an alarming height of 23.4%.

SBI FD Rates: SBI slashes FD rates by 40 basis points

SBI slashes FD rates by 40 basis points. And, a cursory view of Nestle India’s stock. The previous generation has hailed fixed deposits so much that even we find it attractive. Whenever a person in India has got some extra money, the first option that comes to mind is getting an FD done. Reasons for this are also simple – no risk of losing money, a decent rate of return (till now it was slightly more than inflation) and an option to get your money back anytime (compromising the interest). But, latest news from the State Bank of India has put all the FD lovers in dilemma.

TikTok’s tough time going on in India. And, a cursory view of Interglobe Aviation’s stock. There’s an old saying that ‘Time is Money’. So, of course wastage of time can never be appreciated. With India being the largest market for TikTok, an impression was being created that Indians have a lot of spare time. Surely, the people consuming the content from the app were not gaining anything out of it besides petty entertainment. And, since people were watching it large numbers, some brands and businesses were also involved in marketing themselves there.

First phase announcements of PM Modi's Rs 20 trillion stimulus package

First phase announcements regarding the gigantic 20 trillion stimulus package. There’s something very special about self-dependence. If you’re actually self-dependent, you’ll feel liberated from within and you would be motivated to achieve bigger things in life. However, if you stay satisfied with your dependency over others for your survival, you will surely limit yourself and miss the potential growth that you could have enjoyed. This may sound philosophical, but its commercial advantage is being explored by our government currently through ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.

Government planning to come up with a vehicle scrappage policy in near future. And, a cursory view of Maruti-Suzuki’s stock. It’s the nature’s rule to get rid of the old and make way for the new. If we see this through the commercial lens, we observe that old products get replaced by the new ones based on market’s demand. Sometimes, when the market is not ready for the new product (but that’s the need of the hour) then, the government has to step in and introduce the innovation, or rather impose it upon the market. We’re talking about this today because there’s one such situation on cards.
