The political mandate for reform enjoyed by the Narendra Modi government low global oil prices and challenges in other major economies that have made India “the near-cynosure of eager investors” have according to it created an unprecedented opportunity to launch the country on a double-digit medium-term growth trajectory This moment should hence be leveraged to do just what is required — among other things rationalising subsidies by moving to targeted direct benefit transfers using Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile (JAM as the survey calls it) redirecting government expenditures from public consumption to investment and pushing for a nationwide goods and services tax with a single internationally competitive rate sans exemptions Equally sensible is the suggestion that “Make in India” should be about improving the general business environment through less onerous taxes and labour laws or building infrastructure and enabling connectivity It mustn’t involve micro-intervention and sector-specific tax/ tariff incentives which is standard fare in every budget Share This Article Related Article One cannot disagree either with the survey’s assessment about not worrying excessively over deficit reduction targets in the near term so long as the extra borrowings are only for financing investments Weak corporate balance sheets the failure of public-private partnerships in infrastructure and an impaired banking system have held back private investments Given no signs of revival on this count there is no alternative to greater public investment in the current scenario That being the case a review of the existing “glide path” for fiscal deficit reduction — with a view to boosting public investment to revive growth and crowd-in private investment — may well be in order Such a strategy is moreover unlikely to cause any macroeconomic instability: India’s consumer price inflation is projected to be within 5-55 per cent alongside a current account deficit at 1 per cent of the GDP this year as against their corresponding levels of 102 and 47 per cent in 2012 But it is one thing to make the right economic diagnosis and prescription in a routine annual flagship

mudflats and attractive migratory birds including the seasonal flamingos When the flamingos arrive on their annual Mumbai sojourn in November remaining until the monsoon begins birdwatchers flock to the fort to enjoy views of the pink birds But perhaps they too do not really know that the fort was built in 1680 by the British initially serving as a watchtower and later as a jail to house prisoners In 1689 during the Mughal-British confrontation naval chieftain Yakut Khan attacked the fort almost destroying it But the fort survived going on to be completely reconstructed by the British in 1768 After Independence the Mumbai Port Trust converted it into a godown Later it was brought under the jurisdiction of the Department of Archaeology and Museums Maharashtra government and became a state-protected monument Inside the fort (Express Photo) Despite its rich history the fort lies forgotten and neglected today Apart from the locals not many are aware of its existence Ahmed Raza caretaker of the adjacent dargah says “Since it is a desolate spot lovers and drug abusers have made it their haven They create a lot of nuisance here To prevent this we have put a ‘No entry’ sign at the entrance” Located barely a stone’s throw from the Sewri railway station the fort cannot be easily spotted by passersby owing to concrete buildings obstructing the view from the road A dusty path leads to the fort with neither a signboard to indicate that a historical structure lies ahead nor signs inside the fort premises to recount its history Like the walls of other forts in Mumbai over the generations the stone walls have become a tablet to inscribe love stories of visitors The ground is littered with glass bottles cigarette packets and plastic waste According to Ahmed Raza at least 150 people visit the fort daily Bhalchandra Kulkarni Deputy Director of the Archaeology Department says “Developing the Sewri Fort as a tourist spot can greatly benefit the area The more it will be used the more it will be preserved” He adds “There is a plan for a gallery for visitors to stand in and watch the flamingos While this will increase tourism it will also reduce anti-social activities

as his inspiration (Source: Reuters) Top News If one take a closer look at Australian off-spinner Nathan Lyon then it is hard to ignore that the 28 year-old has had a serious makeover since the end of the Australian summer Much of the credit goes to the preparatory camp in Dubai where he bowled close to 1200 deliveries And now Lyon is deservedly reaping all its benefits Lyon exploits with the ball has made everyone sit up and take notice including his inspiration R Ashwin Lyon himself admitted to tweaking his action and approach to imitate the world’s leading spinner India’s R Ashwin And it seems like the offie has now managed to go one notch higher than his counterpart Lyon extracted tremendous bounce from the M Chinnaswamy pitch as the Indian batsmen were found wanting Ashwin on the other hand did not manage to do extract that much amount of bounce A comparative analysis at the two reveals that Lyon who has a more conventional action uses a lot more of his body Primarily his upper body He is a lot more side on as compared to Ashwinwho is a lot more open chested Another factor is themuch bigger pivot for Nathan Lyon which results in thetransfer of his bodyweight into the ball resulting in more bounce?While Ashwin on the other hand relies on finger spin with lesser body weight transfer Another aspect is Lyon imparts more revolutions on the ball than Ashwin Hence the combination of bodyweight with more revolutions gets the ball to kick of the surface It may be recalled here that Lyon’s 8/50 in the first innings of the second Test in Bengaluru helped the visitors bowl out India for 189 While Ashwin picked up only 2 wickets in Australia’s first innings But as far as numbers are concerned 30-year-old R Ashwin is way ahead of Lyon He has already bagged 24 five-wicket hauls in just 84 innings While his average is brilliant as he goes for just above 25 runs per wicket Lyon on the other hand does not have such daunting numbers He has a good strike rate of
