The best diet for everybody - JP Nadda, Pioneer
Malnutrition has been a public health issue in our country for which Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set the agenda through the POSHAN (Prime Minister’s Overarching Scheme for Holistic Nourishment) Abhiyaan. He has announced clear targets and visible results to be seen by 2022, the 75th anniversary of the country’s Independence.
The missing middle - Anil Gupta, Pioneer
The concern expressed by Opposition leaders during West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s United India Rally in Kolkata on the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) is not only perplexing but confusing as well.
Stormy weather awaits India in 2019 - MK Narayanan, Hindu
As India prepares for the general election this year, all signs point to 2019 being a difficult year. Whether this would directly impact the poll outcome is uncertain, but the country needs to remain alert to unexpected developments.
Citizens as stakeholders - Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Pioneer
We all know that technology, especially the internet, is the major disruptive force that is changing everything and turning every model, known and unknown, on its head. At a basic level, it is connecting the average citizen to information and data and empowering him/her in an unprecedented way — in both good and bad ways. This puts all institutions under pressure to change and adapt — and more so Parliaments and parliamentary representatives.
Chill in the Valley - Ashok K Mehta, Pioneer
A deeply poignant moment of the 70th Republic Day parade was the spellbinding citation of Lance Naik Nazir Ahmad Wani for the award of the Ashok Chakra, the highest ‘peacetime gallantry award’, which is a terrible misnomer in war-ravaged Kashmir. A terrorist-turned-soldier, Wani is the first Kashmiri to bag this medal for conspicuous valour.
Clarity begins at Home - Milind Deora, Economic Times
New Delhi rang in the new year with a rancorous debate over the Rafale jet deal that rocked Parliament. The spectre of Rafale continues to haunt the country’s political discourse. While the deal itself has undergone immense scrutiny and analysis, it would behove us to move past politics and peek into the heart of the matter — the nature of the defence sector in India.
Unpleasant home truths - A Surya Prakash, Pioneer
While the announcement of the Bharat Ratna for social activist Nanaji Deshmukh, former President Pranab Mukherjee and Assamese musician Bhupen Hazarika by the Narendra Modi Government has been well-received all over the country, there are some voices of dissent, especially within the Congress, with some leaders accusing the Union Government of promoting “loyalists.”
Congress: Going all in? - Santosh Desai, Times of India
There was a looming inevitability about it, but now that it has happened, questions abound. Does the entry of Priyanka Gandhi into the arena of formal politics cause more excitement in media rather than deliver votes on the ground?
The tripod of rights - Prafull Goradia, Pioneer
As India celebrated its Republic Day, one’s mind goes to the Constitution and the wonderful promises it made. The most poetic of them all is liberty, equality and fraternity, a vow taken from the central slogan of the French Revolution that began in 1789. 
Giving back to the roots - Amit Singh, Pioneer
The then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had conceptualised the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas to acknowledge the existence of overseas Indians in the national narrative, give them a connective tissue to their country of origin and make them stakeholders in the country’s development.
