I forgot to tell my readers that the March 2008 edition of Pragati is out. It contains many excellent articles, including one by Karthik Shashidhar on how Futures contracts benefit farmers. There is also a review by me of Kishore Biyani’s book – It happened in India, which I am sure is pretty horrible. I couldn’t concentrate on it because I was running a cough and cold (and other things to distract me) and I pretty much wrote it up over 2 hours. I can’t bear to go back and read it now.
The January edition of Pragati is marred by the inclusion of my article which explains why India’s political system will not allow Narendra Modi to be Prime Minister, why that is set to change and why that is a good thing. Best of all, it does all this without mentioning Modi once. The rest of the edition is a good read. Go forth, download and subscribe!
