Fixing healthcare's bones - Varun Gandhi, Economic Times
For a basic wage worker afflicted by tuberculosis in a multi-drug-resistant form, an adequate treatment can cost around Rs 1.2-1.5 lakh — over five years of savings. An unskilled worker needs to work an hour in India (vs 10 minutes in Britain) to afford a basic paracetamol. Private healthcare expenditure accounts for about 4% of GDP, one of the highest in the world, and a staggering 82% of this is out-of-pocket (OOP), which pushes 63 million people annually below poverty line (BPL).

Under the leadership of PM Modi India’s commitment towards South East Asia is well documented.
India must stop foreign giants from cannibalising its startups - Vivek Wadhwa, ET
The Rs 136 crore fine imposed on Google for discriminatory search operation was nothing more than a slap on the wrist for the company.  The Google issue, though, is bigger than money. It is about power and control. If India does not rein in foreign technology companies, it will suffer under corporate colonialism.
