Food on its own terms - Pulapre Balakrishnan, Hindu
Picture, they say, is worth a hundred words. Two pictures related to Kerala, though separated by decades and differing in content, speak to us strongly of how we may secure its future.

Fixing India's banks - Nirvikar Singh, Financial Express
In an earlier column, I highlighted the urgent need to deal with non-performing assets (NPAs) of Indian banks, as well as the important role that the new RBI Deputy Governor, Viral Acharya, could play in finding a solution. Indeed, on February 21, in his maiden speech in his RBI role, Acharya brilliantly laid out the outlines of a comprehensive plan to deal with banks’ stressed assets (a category somewhat broader than NPAs, including loans that are at risk, but not yet in trouble).

Itís not about loan waivers - Ashok Gulati & Ranjana Roy, Indian Express
THE ANSWER TO who will form the next government in Punjab is currently sealed in the ballot boxes. Meanwhile, there are reports that the Election Commission has written to the home minister, reinforcing its demand to make electoral bribery a cognisable offence.

An Indian sub-prime crisis in the making? - Rohit Azad, Hindu
The Indian corporate sector is grappling with a severe bad debt crisis, and as a result, the banks (public sector banks) are increasingly getting saddled with non-performing assets. Calling it India’s sub-prime crisis might be an exaggeration but I would just like to add ‘not yet’! Moreover in conditions such as these, with the global economic crisis in the background, it’s better to be cautious rather than looking back at the data when it’s all over.
