Growth busts poverty - Times of India
Poverty estimates between 2004-05 and 2009-10 show a sharp reduction in the absolute number of the poor by 52.5 million to 354.7 million. This is encouraging for several reasons. While the new poverty line at lower than the earlier Rs 32 per day benchmark - Rs 22.43 per day for rural areas and Rs 28.65 per day for urban areas - may draw grumbles, the fact is the percen-tage of below poverty line people has declined at double the pace of that bet-ween 1993-94 and 2004-05.

Verbatim

The Modi government, by building a range of options, including to neuter Pakistan’s nuclear blackmail, is indicating that Pakistani aggression will attract increasing costs. If the ISI is planning new attacks in India, with the intent to fob them off as the work of al-Qaeda’s supposed new India franchise, it can be sure that it will invite an Indian response imposing serious costs on the entire Pakistani security establishment. Mr. Modi is clearly signalling that India’s response to the Pakistani strategy to inflict death by a thousand cuts will no longer be survival by a thousand bandages, but punitive so as to bolster deterrence and mend conduct. Given that the “do nothing” approach allowed India to be continually gored, prudent gradualism has been a long time coming.
