The current debacle of our contemporary institutions leaves us all aghast with shock and maybe some nostalgia for older times when matters were perceived to be more organised. It seems that with the loss of the pyramidal structure of societies, which implied not only that the place of each individual was clearly defined but also that the diffusion of information was controlled,  our contemporary society is floundering to find its footing. Whether in the world of education, politics, religion, family, everywhere the debacle is felt as individuals scramble to cope with the fragmentation of knowledge and control which is our contemporary legacy.

My thoughts on education hubs and their role as income generating economic opportunities for nations often start with established success stories in Australia and Malaysia and more recently in the Middle Eastern kingdoms of Dubai and Qatar. But they quickly wind down towards a non-descript town in the arid Indian state of Rajasthan called Kota. You may have never heard of this town at all – most people have not.

Of course, it’s a lot easier said or written than done. Today, we are negotiating the fourth article of the series on our electoral framework in comparison with international standards. You may remember that all the points of view are against the backdrop of the recent bitterly-fought and foul-tempered municipal council elections.

The Government has again shown its firm intention to bring about the necessary reform in the civil service to improve the efficiency in the provision of public services, to eliminate corruption and to reward efforts through Performance-related pay incentives.

The Government has again shown its firm intention to bring about the necessary reform in the civil service to improve the efficiency in the provision of public services, to eliminate corruption and to reward efforts through Performance-related pay incentives. It is thus expected that these good intentions will not be in vain and that these will be translated into meaningful actions in the next PRB publications getting the buy-in of all the stakeholders.

The Economics of national budgeting in turmoil scenarios with systemic volatility and forecasting murkiness is akin to Picasso’s abstract Art with a dose of wishful strategic thinking and utmost political faith for good measure.

A 100 thousand poets for a change,
I’ll give a round of applause for the man of the hour for the initiative,
Quite laudable,
Yes,
At least a man who feels, in a world of zombies and other haem-feasting nosferatu,

A 100 thousand poets for a change,
I’ll give a round of applause for the man of the hour for the initiative,
Quite laudable,
Yes,
At least a man who feels, in a world of zombies and other haem-feasting nosferatu,

I just managed to survive the world at peak time right now,
It seems like everyone’s rushing for the remaining tickets for the aero zeppelin leavin earth in a bit,
You know, just before mother earth explodes out of sheer pissedness at us all
Where to?
