The Rekindling of Old Flames

Cheif Minister Mamata Banerjee with GJM leaders in Darjeeling

Is the Mamata - GJM friendship back on track?

The Mamata - Morcha friendship seemed to come much closer on the 25th of October as a long meeting between the two dubbed the much hyped meet as successful wherein it was decided that a bipartite meet would be held after the festival of lights. Any talks with the State Government had been ruled out by the Morcha in its latest tirade against the Government earlier. While the bipartite talks would be held in Kolkata, it is expected to be followed by tripartite talks and the three GJM legislators would be heading to Delhi along with the TMC MPs to pressurize the Central Government to release funds to the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA). “I am happy that the GTA has started functioning.

The World of Business

No Shortcut Route Open

Little did we think that the airlines could compete with the railways, the then sanctioned housing loans turning to be a giant sub-prime crisis and great recession would be visiting the biggies at a time when mankind wishes to look at the other planets to find out the existence of the counterpart

The time has arrived when we note that even the best of professionals need a team of effective information managers to ensure optimal productivity, an effective system of internal control skills to provide inputs to quicken the process of decision making. An attitudinal change is a must in such a context as the nature of business has been becoming more and more complex. Today’s business means, clearly, becoming an international player as nothing of such could succeed if the same remains restricted to a frog in the well form. It is something like accepting that ‘the ship looks good when parked at the harbour but the same is not meant to remain so. Business without risk is virtually preparing an omelet without breaking the egg. Add a comment Read more...

Power Struggle

Natural resources and their bearing on the future of mankind

People around this planet now know for sure that its natural resources are exhaustible and are being exhausted at a very fast rate. It is therefore, our moral duty to preserve the energy resources available to us, as citizen of this planet Earth.

Unstoppable India!

Young India holds the key

Few civilizations have perhaps witnessed as much of a transitional phase in history than India. Yet, it is to our strength that the country has made giant strides. The colonial invasion, gory past of bloodshed or the nefarious caste system – actually nothing could mar the spirit of optimism that the countrymen display braving all odds. In the words of longtime India watcher Mark Tully, the famous BBC journalist, “India is often likened to an elephant lumbering along unstoppable”

If the saying ‘Nothing is permanent except change’ is relevant anywhere,it is in the context of India’s emergence as an upcoming global economy and regional power to a large extent. It has braved crises after crises – and surmounted challenge after challenge.The inherent resilient power vis-à-vis the economic recession and successful management of its economy and its polity has earned the country a respectable position in the comity of nations.
