7- Delhi needs to be open to several outcomes from the turbulence created by the US president

Delhi tends to use the word “transactional” pejoratively. This is particularly true of the Indian discourse on the partnership with the United States. The political elite of independent India had convinced itself that foreign policy was mostly about articulating principles. It frowned upon the idea of deal-making for mutual benefit. This approach, coupled with the inability to see the world through the lens of power politics, has meant India’s international performance has always been sub-optimal.

Q- What is transactional diplomacy ? Although pragmatism has often crept into Indian diplomacy since the end of the Cold War, it has not really overthrown the entrenched condescension in Delhi towards deal-making. Comment.

8- Philanthropy for higher education

9- Why India needs more women entrepreneurs

Indian women are not only staying out of the workforce, they are doing so in increasing numbers across the board. The World Bank’s latest development update for India reiterates these trends but also draws attention to an interesting insight: Women employers tend to hire a significantly greater number of women.

Q- if India’s growth story has to translate into shared prosperity for all its people, then it cannot afford to have one half of its population sit out.  Comment
