Parents and youth are continuing their protest to demand security for women. In the aftermath of the brutal police laathicharge on peaceful demonstrators following provocative actions by miscreants connected with established political parties, the scene of protests have shifted to Jantar Mantar and residential colonies and local markets throughout Delhi. Thousands of citizens had gathered at the Jantar Mantar on 25th December and vociferously protested the police clamp-down and reiterated their demand for right to security for women and people at large.

Do we have to live with inflation?

One issue that has been bothering people most in recent times is the persisting inflation over the past several months. We hear that inflation in India was 7.5% in the month of May. But inflation in the Indian economy is a much more longer-term phenomenon. We will be surprised to hear that historically Indian inflation rate averaged 8% from 1969 to 2012, for more than 40 years!
