Management lessons we can learn from Rahul Gandhi, but he won’t

Indira Gandhi built the party in its current form. Rajiv enjoyed the power in the aftermath of her assassination. Sonia entered politics because the Gandhi family was used to power by then. And now Rahul, the weak grandson, is busy driving it into the ground. #Congress #Indira Gandhi #Rahul Gandhi #Rajiv Gandhi

Modi’s mann ki baat on land acquisition is the first attempt to explain reform in 25 years

Modi addressed this issue as well by saying: “In every household, the farmer wants only one son to stay in farming. But he wants other children to get out there and work because he knows that in order to run a household in this day and age different endeavours need to be made.” He then went to say that given this scenario what is wrong with the government acquiring land for building an industrial corridor and ensuring that jobs are created in the vicinity of where farmers live. #BJP #Clair de Lune #Land #Mann Ki Baat #Narendra Modi

SBI’s property e-auction: Why not show same aggression to corporate defaulters?

India's largest bank has not shown the same aggression when it comes to recovering money from big defaulters. In that sense the entire thing is very Orwellian—all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. #bad loans #corporates #Defaulters #Property auction #SBI

Stimulus and reforms don’t go together: Jaitley should have kept his fiscal deficit promise

Stimulus and reforms don't go together. Let's see if Jaitley and the Modi government are able to prove that wrong. Only time will tell. But with 282 members in the Lok Sabha, Jaitley should have kept his promise to bring down the fiscal deficit on 28/2. #Arun Jaitley #Budget #Budget2015 #Economy Budget 2015 #fiscal deficit #Union Budget 2015

Jaitley’s tax gimmick: Budget 2015 gives tax benefit of only Rs 52,221, not Rs 4.44 lakh

The finance minister Arun Jaitley during the course of his budget speech today remarked: “After taking into account the tax concession given to middle class tax payers in my last Budget and this Budget, today an individual tax payer will get tax benefit of Rs 4,44,200.” #Budget2015 #Common Man Budget #Common Man Budget 2015 #Data Budget 2015 #NPS #Union Budget 2015

Budget 2015: Why cut corporate tax but not personal tax, Mr Jaitley?

Around 3% of Indians pay income tax. If more corporates are likely to pay more tax at lower rates, can't the same assumption be made for individual tax payers as well? Further, like the corporates income tax laws, can't the personal income tax laws simplified as well? #Arun Jaitley #Arun Jaitley Speech #Budget #Budget2015 #Common Man Budget 2015 #Income tax #Personal Finance Budget 2015 #personal taxes #Union Budget 2015
