We are well into the new financial year. Both, Railway Budget and Union Budget are already out and life appears to be moving gingerly ahead without any radical shift of fortune, except that the anticipated share market revival has not taken place.
Summer months are round the corner hence the mercury is steadily going up. Also going up is the political heat. With developments of different nature, political parties are taking diverse stands which can affect political permutations and combinations. There is unease in New Delhi’s corridors of power. There is speculation that there could be election to the Lok Sabha earlier than 2014. Election to the Karnataka Assembly has already been announced for next month. Atmosphere is really hot but uncertain. Incumbent party may have to pay for incumbency factors. Who will come to power at Bangalore is difficult question to answer. It looks co-alition is going to return to state politics. In any case, let’s hope that there is deliverance to the harassed people of Karnataka.
There was a very pleasant surprise when we received a feedback from a young lady, as young as, all of 16 years. A 10th Std. CBSE student, the youngest to respond, in a language far beyond her age. Meghna Achar has really made our day with her incisive observation. We are indeed touched. Hope she continues to read I & C and regularly reverts with her valued feedback.
International Women’s Day, is an annual feature on 8th of March every year. We have taken up the issue under Focus for the importance it deserved. However, how politician and police joined to-gether to hijack the feminine movement, despite the loud positive noises of the political class is something known, but not discussed. We have tried to combine both issues for its relevance. Hope readers will find it interesting and worth your time. Do revert as usual with your considered inputs. Rest as usual.
