Sri Lanka Under Liquidity Trap

Sri Lanka Under Liquidity Trap

Sri Lanka is currently reeling under severe inflation and foreign exchange crisis with falling foreign currency assets and the government’s inability to foot the bill for essential imports. Sri Lanka has seen an enormous capital flight of this short term capital which has triggered a massive selloff in its bond market and currency. The central bank sold dollars in the foreign exchange (forex) market to stabilize the sliding rupee.

Hijab on Trial

The hijab verdict resonates with the Babri Masjid case where the court declared that the temple should be made based on ‘faith’ on the demolition site, despite endorsing the absence of historical evidence of the destruction of the temple there.

A Theory of Doddering Dominoes

In the Ukrainian crisis, if there is one organisation or entity that comes out as the most sensible in indicating the way forward for the world is the European Union (EU). The EU, as an organisation with a particular sensibility and sobriety, can temper the worst excesses of nationalism and the vehicle that it often mindlessly carries forward the nation-state.

A hard call

A hard call

Contesting ideological orientations have caused the exclusion of many talented, competent, and capable people from playing their part in state-building and nation-building. For example, a non-Muslim could not be elected as prime minister and/or president of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan no matter their capabilities.

Ganga’s Revival: A Distant Dream without Reimagining Policy

Ganga is one of the most significant rivers in India. The river has appeared in almost all election campaigns, particularly in the cow belt region.

Reforming Medical Education In India

Reforming Medical Education In India

Prof. Furqan Qamar iterated that the capacity of the medical field is severely restrained in India. However, this does not mean that the number of medical colleges and their intake capacity has remained stagnant since independence. India had only about 28 medical colleges and in 2021-22, the number of medical colleges has gone up to 595. While in 1950-51, almost all medical colleges were under government domain with the idea of training people to serve the nation. During 1991-92 this started changing as high fee charges in medical education started making entry into the system. In today’s scenario of the above 600 colleges, almost half of them are private or in the private domain. The intake is deficient, with less than 100,000 students every year, half of which goes to the government and half to the private sector.
