Notes

Goodbye, Barack

Obama as a president reflected the need for unity, peace and reconciliation in the nation and world. Some may have interpreted it as the loss of Americas greatness but, it symbolically represents that human tribe is one.

Obama way of affirming his black roots with out denying others their due has given the world the importance of being tolerant.

He made American society to reflect to itself.on issues of race, police community relations, role of the state etc,.

But, he failed to gaze the anger growing in working Americans due to globalisation and loss of jobs. Added to this, Obama wanted to change things, but with out disturbing too much. It had given a credence for the voice of Trump and his ascendency for presidency.

 

Perspective

Notes to remember

Demographically, senior citizens, low income groups are more dependant on disposable income. In India, cash to GDP ration is close to 12% and cost on cash is close to 21,000cr rupees. Any society to be able to transform  to a digital economy should have a choice to be able to safely, reliably and conveniently transact money digitally at price which is affordable and at a place where needed. India has a long distance to go.

 

Talking to children about untouchability

In India, as per survey of social attitudes research for India,  Urban and Rural areas, young and aged do not have a much difference to their sensitivity to caste. They equally practice untouchability. Roots of this menace starts in early childhood, when one gets exposed to untouchability  in day to day practice.

Empirical evidence in USA shoes us that white studentswho read about both the accomplishments of and the discrimination faced byblack Americans later displayed lessbiased attitudes towards blacks thanwhite children who had merely readabout accomplishments.

India has to acknowledge the problem and every one shall make an effort to end this. It has to start from Talking to children about untouchability.

 

 

Question of the day

  1. Do you think Indian society and economy are ready for digital economy / cashless economy. Suggest the way forward?
