Is Abrogation of Article 370 a Silver Lining for Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh!

by Neeti Raina In the late 1980s, life as I (a junior school student) knew was quite comfortable during the harsh winter months in Jammu and Kashmir. In Srinagar, where I lived with my family (till December 1989), on an average load-shedding for 12 hours a day– particularly covering peak hours, was a norm. Every household would make arrangements to manage this thrice-a-week power cut (called ‘Vaaer’ in Kashmiri literally translated to Turn). From dusk or at night children would study and do their homework, women would cook and finish their household chores under the light of a petromax lamp (a star performer) or the traditional kerosene lamp or even the humble candle. The entire family would huddle around the lamp or the candle (back then one did not have the luxury of having more th...

Infrastructure is the backbones of a country’s economy – growth of both – physical and digital infrastructure is needed for achieving sustainable development.

Real Estate Budget Wish List: More Tax Benefits Needed To Generate Demand

by Anuj Puri With the Modi Government taking full charge, all sectors have pinned high hopes from the finance minister – who is already saddled with multiple issues including the slowing economy, liquidity crunch due to NBFC crisis, lack of job creation and rising NPAs, among others.

After all, during the boom era between 2004 and 2008, the average five-year return...
