Not only India's relief packages are grossly inadequate it is not even spending enough to revive demand in the crisis-hit economy; what is needed is clear: more fiscal spending, not \"keeping the power dry\" for future stimulus or unrealistic claim of a V-shaped recovery

Part II of this two-part article continues to relook at misadventures that derailed the Indian economy, threatening dreams of millions of \"aspirational\" Indians. Instead of a serious and meaningful debate, India continues to grapple with constant and systemic \"misdirection\" in multiple sense of the word

This is Part I of two-part article revisiting critical economic decisions that eventually led to minus 23.9% growth in Q1 of FY21. Blaming exogenous factors (pandemic) or intense lockdown is merely an excuse to divert attention from government's ineptitude and thwart meaningful debate

Gross mismanagement of the economy, starting with demonetisation in November 2016 and continued with untimely, unplanned and sudden nation-wide lockdown has compounded the GST problem. Centre's refusal to pay compensation to states now may derail it completely

NEP 2020 does not address the fundamental flaws in Indian education system: poor public investment, ad hoc and low-paid teachers, segregation of students on socio-economic status and low quality of school education. Rhetorical flourish doesn't bring transformative changes

High and middle-income countries that have consistently performed well in PISA, the global test of quality schooling, notably rely on public schooling and public funding of schooling. India, which participated in it once in 2009 and came second last, does the exact opposite

No wonder the quality of education in Indian schools is very poor. The latest Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) says just 16.2% students in Class I and 50.8% in Class III could read Class I text and 41.1% students in Class I and 72.2% in Class III could recognise 2-digit numbers in rural India
