1.21 Billion

We , Indians, now are a family of 121 crores now, as per the 2011 Census. Up by 17.64%.
Equal to a combined population of US, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Japan.

Some of my observations


1.      Look it from other side, a deficit of 10%, since the GDP never grew by that percent in this period

2.      It's a serious threat, courtesy- BPL figures :(

3.      A nation can't sustain with an increasing topline when its bottom line doesn't complement it , assuming topline being the population, bottom line be the economic growth

4.      Growth rate is less, not the number. 20% on 100 is 20 and 2% on 1000 is 20 as well. If the base would change, obviously percentage shall come down. On the quantity- we have risen to a higher number. Secondly- male to female ratio still a concern. Education is contributing- but with disparity of geography

5.      Base- It is the 2001 data. On the same- we have increased quantum. In numbers we have added more, in percent we have added less, this is what m saying. The only difference is that we have added a good number of children that are now getting educated

6.      We are up by 17.64% owing to increased female foeticide, again a reason to worry.

7.      Per Population - if u say that it is number of ppl increase per total population, it is mathematical, that is why it has shown a less number than previous year. Issues of concern are - we couldn't contain the increasing number.

8.      All i want to say is- GROWTH RATE is a base effect, Quantum number not in control, like every year, so positivity aana baaki h...

All they want is a pleasant experience for us

My experiences with this gloomy world continue. I may sound repetitive and annoying, but there's a reality check for all of us who think that the world is fine as long as the Covid-19 doesn't hit us and our paychecks continue to flow into the banks.  The store in the picture is amongst the busiest in the area, always remains full and explodes with the people on the Saturdays. A typical brand in a store, let's say a Van Heusen makes about ₹200,000 to ₹220,000 of sales on the weekend. As of today, the store does about ₹10,000 to ₹15,000 of revenues of the same brand, and the footfalls are not even 5 per cent of what they otherwise used to witness. Ironically, a store of this size would have 8-10 salesman with an average basic salary of ₹10,000 to ₹12,000 a month and the balance they earn (~₹5,000-₹7,500) is all linked to the sales of the brand. For them, purchases from the store cover-up for the livelihood, savings and the investments and there are no concept of "work fr

The new age crisis

I don't know who I should credit or discredit, but last couple of years have been incredible for India and it's people and it is not in a good way. Disappointed to note that the politics has completely taken over us and the ideological differences have reached our houses and personal devices. We are not only fighting amongst us on difference of opinion, but also ensuring that the dissent against a majoritarian view is killed to its core, to the extent that the voice is never raised against any impending thoughts or disagreements we may have.  I am deeply saddened by the fact that most of us now are actually made to believe that the opinion shared by a larger section of society is deemed right since it has the weight of a the population around, and in case you have reservations to even contest that, you are probably branded as a threat.  I may have had little problems with CAA or NRC if it wasn't done for the political incentives and the treatment of the people not sharing t
