India shines amidst global gloom

Apropos “RBI: FY25 growth forecast at 7%,” (THI, May 31). By upping India’s economic outlook from “negative” to “stable”, the S&P agency also has put its stamp on the remarkable recovery made by the Indian economy after the mayhem caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. It has forecast India’s GDP growth at 6.8 per cent this fiscal. This is an encouraging sign amid a global slowdown. But S&P has a word of caution for the country’s political parties. It said that it could revise the outlook to stable if it observed an erosion of political commitment to maintain sustainable public finances which, in turn, signifies a weakening of the country’s institutional capacity.

Modi will meditate for India’s sake

EC junked Congress complaint that meditation by Narendra Modi is a gross violation of MCC. It is a slap in the face of opposition. It only signals that they are scared of Modi. In fact, the word ‘meditate’ means, “To think deeply in silence”, there is no iota of doubt that a patriotic leader of the calibre of Modi will certainly focus for the good of the nation unlike Rahul Gandhi and Congress leaders who at the drop of the hat only demean the nation by sarcasm.

A leg-up to pvt space companies

Recently, Agnibaan marked the second instance of a privately constructed Indian rocket taking off. This accomplishment is noteworthy because the engine utilised a combination of gas and liquid fuel, a pioneering feat for the nation. India’s encouragement of a private space sector is commendable. Even NASA is urging private enterprises to make significant strides in space exploration. As a recognized space power, India should advocate for global initiatives aimed at restraining the commercialization and militarization of space.

In a substantial leap for India’s private space sector, Agnikul Cosmos efficaciously launched its SOrTeD mission, a single-stage launch vehicle parade powered by a semi-cryogenic 3D-printed engine. The mission, which lasted roughly a couple of minutes, marked a major accomplishment for the company and the country in the development of indigenous space technology. It marks a momentous moment for private players who are contributing to the growth of India’s space sector.

Nature does turn us creative

Apropos, “Imagination: The true magic carpet” (THI 30-05-2024). Dr Mohan Kanda has touched with grace all veterans in all fields. I repeat the quote of Einstein in a different conclusion. “Imagination is more important than knowledge for knowledge is limited whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution”. New born baby sucks the mother’s milk - how and who taught the baby. It is sheer imaginative power bestowed on them by the nature. Same phenomenon applies to animals also.

PM turns himself a laughing stock

Discretion is the better part of the valour. Caring two hoots for it, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi stumbled upon remarking that “Mahatma Gandhi got recognition after a film was made on him”. The year was 1982. It shows his extreme sense of arrogance and, if any, his dogmatic and blind exclusion to the very personality of the “Father of the nation”. Overnight, he turned into a laughing stock. Such unrestrained statements definitely leave their impact on the prospects of his political party.

Minds were blocked to everyone on seeing the news that none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the world did not know of Bapu till film on ‘Gandhi’ (May 30). It is not only astonishing but a big joke of this year. The entire world knows about Father of the Nation much before he jumped into the India’s freedom struggle. Hollywood studied in depth about Gandhi years before for bringing him on to the celluloid in 1982. Strictly speaking Gandhi was in lime light since he was insulted in South Africa more than hundred years ago. Nelson Mandela , Martin Luther King, Barrack Obama, British Emperors, Albert Einstein etc., had poured their encomiums on this peace lover. Modi’s aversion on Congress rulers spills over to Mahatma also.
