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.

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%.

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.
