Governments must listen to voices from the past

'In economic matters governments should not take sides based on religion and caste,' says T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan. There is nothing more satisfying than re-inventing the wheel. Economists generally are particularly good at it, and Indian economists are even better. If you don't believe me, just read the writings of pre-1947 Indian economists in J Krishnamurty's Towards Development Economics: Indian Contributions, 1900-1945. Your eyes will pop open. Thus, several years ago, I was in Bangalore ... Rediff.com, 2 days ago

Privatisation, India style

Over the years India’s governments have turned several public goods into private ones, says T C A Srinivasa-Raghavan. A friend of mine is appalled that the Modi government has asked private restaurants to allow people to use their loos for a nominal charge of Rs 5. I can quite understand her annoyance.

What the fiddich! Why are books so fat?

Just as scotch bottles have become bigger, novels have also become fatter. Illustration: Dominic Xavier/Rediff.com. A few days ago, a friend said he doesn’t read fiction. This reminded me of an incident 40 years ago when, largely in order to prevent an earnest friend from forcing Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Virginia Woolf, etc on me, I told her I never read story books and that my tastes in fiction ran very much lower. Eventually, she turned her attention to someone else and I was ...
