The Farm Bill 2020: Know the Pros & Cons

The newly passed farm bills will give farmers the freedom to trade across states and empower them to turn into traders of their own produce and be in control of the process. The intent behind these three bills is that the new regulation will create an ecosystem where the farmers and traders will enjoy the freedom of choice of sale and purchase of agri-produce and promote barrier-free inter and intra-state trade and commerce outside the physical premises of markets notified under State Agricultural Produce Marketing legislations.

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.

Indian Trains in Private Hands!

If there is one thing that is believed to represent the majority population of our country, that is Indian Railways. You would have surely observed that foreigners who visit India usually travel by trains to get to know this country better. Of course they get a proper rustic feel while traveling by trains. But, after taking this experience, they usually do not appreciate India. Not in a way that they disrespect the country but, it’s clear they do not enjoy their train traveling experience. Let’s delve deeper into this.

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. But, just before this, we experienced quite an unusual time where the only thing we knew was ‘Stay Home, Stay Safe’. People stayed at home but the economy entered into an unsafe territory. 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%.

This is a monetary or economic risk attached to human assets, and this is where the role of insurance comes in.

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’.

Why Government is planning to come up with a vehicle scrappage policy

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.

Union Budget 2020: Highlights, Analysis & Opinion

Union Budget 2020 was presented by our FM. Did it meet our expectations? A man resided in a desert along with his Camel. The conditions that were already harsh were slowly getting worse, and it was tough for both of them to sustain. The camel had faithfully serviced his master for long so, it had high hopes that the master would take good care of it. Finally, a day came when they had to start their journey in order to shift to the nearest city. Before starting the long journey, the camel had to eat in bulk and the Camel expected a satiating treat. But, alas! The man offered some Cumin seeds (Jeera in Hindi) to the camel and started the journey. Now imagine the desert as economy, the man as the government and the camel as common people.
