#16 Indias past, present and future

A big thank you to the 80+ people who joined our seminar:

Indias past, present and future with Dr. Parakala Prabakar.

Dr Parakala Prabhakar is an Indian political economist and political commentator in economic and social affairs. He served as Communications Advisor and held a cabinet rank position in the Andhra Pradesh Government between July 2014 and June 2018. He is also Managing Director of the company RightFOLIO. Rightfolio leverages the latest advances in collection and analysis of Big Data. 

In this episode we will take a look at the health emergency caused by Covid-19, the preparedness of the union government, accountability in the Indian political system, and the numbing of our senses to the large scale human tragedy that’s unfolding before our eyes. 

Other topics we touched upon are:

  • From independence until the 1980’s, the Indian economy grew at a modest rate of 2-3 percent. In 1991, many reforms were initiated by Manmohan Singh. What has happened since 1991?
  • India has the largest number of students in the world at 315 million. How will the 500 million young Indians shape the future of India? 
  • The government of India has introduced a number of reforms, one of them being Make in India. How do you view FDI during this pandemic? What are the biggest barriers for economic growth? 
  • What industries or economic areas does India have the potential to be a world leader in? 
  • Where is the growth expected to come from?
