P. V. Narasimha Rao (or PV as he was popularly known) has been widely praised for enabling the economic reforms that transformed the country in 1991. From the vantage point of his long personal and professional association with the former prime minister, bestselling author Sanjaya Baru shows how PV’s impact on the nation’s fortunes went way beyond the economy.
This book is an insider’s account of the politics, economics and geopolitics that combined to make 1991 a turning point for India. The period preceding that year was a difficult one for India: Economically, due to the balance of payments crisis; politically, with Rajiv Gandhi’s politics of opportunism and cynicism taking the country to the brink and globally, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, its ally. It was in this period that the unheralded PV assumed leadership of the Indian National Congress, took charge of the central government, restored political stability, pushed through significant economic reforms and steered India through the uncharted waters of a post-cold war world. He also revolutionized national politics and his own Congress party, by charting a new political course, thereby proving that there could be life beyond the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty.
1991 marked the end of an era and the beginning of another. It was the year that made PV. And it was the year PV made history

Some time ago we received at the Embassy the letter of a teenager who asked us to somehow deliver it to his idol Rafa Nadal.
Yesterday, taking the opportunity that the Spanish Tennis Team is in#NewDelhi for theDavis Cup, we delivered the letter to Rafa Nadal and he gave us a signed photo!
We surprised this boy, Aryaman, by paying him a visit at his house with the signed photo and with two tickets for today’s tennis match (courtesy of the Spanish Royal Tennis Federation)… he could hardly believe his luck!
Thanks everyone who made this possible, a Spain-India sport dream come true!
See the picture of the Chargée d’Affaires, the Cultural Counsellor and our intern with Aryaman!
Hoy tenemos una historia muy especial para contaros…
Hace algún tiempo llegó a la Embajada la carta de adolescente indio, gran fan de Rafa Nadal, quien nos pedía se la hiciéramos llegar a su ídolo de algún modo.
Ayer, aprovechando la presencia del equipo de tenis español en#NuevaDelhi con motivo de la Davis Cup, entregamos la Carta a Rafa Nadal y… ¡nos devolvió una foto firmada!
Acudimos por sorpresa a la casa de este chico, Aryaman, con la foto firmada y con dos entradas para ver el partido de hoy (cortesía de la Real Federación Española de Tenis), ¡no podía creerlo!
Gracias a todos los que habéis hecho esto posible, ¡un sueño deportivo Spain-India hecho realidad!
Aquí tenéis una foto de la Encargada de Negocios, la Consejera Cultural y nuestra becaria con Aryaman!
Paris, 16 September—UNESCO will host an international meeting at which experts will take stock of underwater heritage which is becoming ever more vulnerable due to its increasing accessibility. At UNESCO Headquarters on 22 and 23 September, particants will examine ways to improve the protection of this heritage from pillaging, commercial exploitation and illgal trade.
The purpose of the meeting is to support the implementation of UNESCO’s Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Heritage. Participants will include leading experts, among them James Delgado of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Ricardo Duarte, of the Eduardo Mondlane University (Mozambique), Michel L’Hour of the Department of Underwater Archaeological Research of France’s Ministry of Culture, and underwater archaeologist Michael Pateman from the Bahamas.
They will examine questions concerning the monitoring of sites, pillaging and the trade in illegally or unscientifically salvaged cultural artefacts (see Programme). There will also be presentations concerning recent examples of pillage such as the case of the Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes*.
Advances in diving equipment have placed underwater remains within the reach of archaeologists and treasure hunters alike and the pillaging of such sites is spreading. While many States have reinforced the protection of their heritage on land, most undrwater heritage remains unprotected.
UNESCO’s 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage has been designed to improve the protection of submerged heritage, in line with what is done on land. Fifty-five countries have ratified the Convention to date, committing to safeguard this heritage, banning its commercial exploitation and pillaging. The Convention also seeks to encourage the exchange of infromation and draw attention to the importance of this heritage. The Convention doe not, however, address disputes regarding ownership of submerged properties.
Amittabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu,Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang along with the Director Anirudhha Roy Chowdhary adn roducer Shoojit Sircar and Rony talks about their film in Delhi
Pink is a courtroom drama and the court room scenes in the film are inspired from1988 Hollywood film “The Accused”.
The film revolves around three working professionals played by Taapsee Pannu(Minal), Kirti Kulhari (Falak) and Andrea Tariang ( playing a North eastern girl)staying together as tenants in the Delhi’s post locality, South. Their life changes at a rock concert that sets off a terrifying chain of events for them.
Taapsee Pannu “I am a Delhi girl and eve teasing is a common thing here. Even my parents say why do I have to wear something short or backless. Is it my fault to be born as a women ? Even if I wear full clothes, men will not stop teasing women on roads.”
The film is lot more than just the girls fighting for themselves and their dignity. The film will show how a society opressed by the men sees an independent woman, how the rich brats considers everything as their property, how the character of a woman is judged based on when she returns home and the guests she entertains.
No other actor in the industry could craft the character of Mr.Sehgall, better than Amitabh Bachchan in the film. He said in a press conference “Why the virginity becomes a question mark for the woman and an exclamation mark for the men?”
“I feel sad when people from abroad call India as a land of rape and third world country. We all should work to make India a developed nation” he further added.
The film is directed by Anirudhha Roy Chowdhary and is produced by Sujit Sircar. Pink loudly says “when a girl says No, that means ‘NO’. Its not a word its an entire sentence”
As part of our Urban Workshop Series, the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) and Centre de Sciences Humaines (CSH), Delhi, are delighted to invite you to a workshop on The Ridge and the City: Environmental Politics in Delhi by Thomas Crowley, from the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany.
Date: Tuesday, 27th September 2016
Time: 3.45 p.m.
Venue: Conference Hall, Centre for Policy Research, Dharma Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi 110 021
This presentation explores the environmental politics of the Delhi Ridge, a hilly area that cuts through the National Capital Territory. The Ridge is often described as the green lung of Delhi, a crucial ecological resource in a rapidly-expanding megacity. At present, roughly eighty square kilometres along the Ridge have been notified as Reserved Forests, the highest level of protection the government can give. The earliest notification dates back to 1913, but the vast majority of the area was notified in 1994 and 1996. The current politics of the Ridge largely revolve around its status as a Reserved Forest: whether the notification process has been followed properly; whether the notified areas are being afforested in a timely and ecologically-sensitive manner; whether boundary lines are being drawn properly, if they are being drawn at all; how to handle so-called ‘encroachments’ in the Ridge; and so on. All these issues are important for understanding ecological and political contestations in present-day Delhi. However, exclusively focusing on the Ridge as a forest obscures a much larger social and environmental shift, which took place over several centuries: the evolution of the Ridge from commonly-owned land used for grazing and firewood collection to a state-owned forest area. But this state-owned zone is surrounded by privately-owned plots used for quarrying, real estate speculation and more, and the boundaries between the two are often quite blurry. Using the theoretical frameworks of political ecology and historical geography, the presentation will analyse these shifts in land use over the longue durée, and explore their implications for ecological and social justice in Delhi today.
Thomas Crowley is the author of the report Fractured Forest: the Political Ecology of the Delhi Ridge, which he wrote while working for the Delhi-based NGO Intercultural Resources. Beginning in October, he will be a Fellow in the Art, Science and Business Program at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany.
This is the eightieth in a series of Urban Workshops planned by the Centre de Sciences Humaines (CSH), New Delhi and Centre for Policy Research (CPR). These workshops seek to provoke public discussion on issues relating to the development of the city and try to address all its facets including its administration, culture, economy, society and politics.

Last even I ran into my friend who is AIIMS Topper and AIIMS Faculty for almost four decades – out of curiosity and concern – I asked ‘AIIMS is getting so many cases of Chikungunya and Dengue cases – Are you safe?’He too had Chikungunya and his wife still suffering. But what he disclosed was most unbelievable – Scam in Fogging.
“Fogging Doesn’t Kill Mosquitoes –The Pesticide Used in Fogging is Short or Spurious or MCD Simply Fogging Diesel Without Any Insecticide.” – He said.
When in Service I was top Engineer, used to Study & Research, Train Workers, Monitor & Surprise Check Their Work. In 2005Trained All Indian Consumers to Test Check ‘Fast Electricity Meters’ On StarNews
India & AAP govt are ‘Failing’ because they do not MONITORING Progress Linked to Billing. There is No Monitoring of –
‘Drain Cleaning, Garbage Collection, All Unauthorized Constructions, Check Qualify & Price of Fruits & Vegetable to Foods Retailed on Streets, Power Disruptions, Quality & Timing of Water, Quality Of Roads, PARKING of Vehicles, Traffic Jams, Consumer Courts, Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Hotels, Malls, Railway Stations, Factories, Accidents & Crimes, Shops & Chemists.’
Tragedy of Delhi is after AAP’s LANDSLIDE WIN – 67 out of 70 MLAs None Of Politicians of BJP, Congress and even Ruling AAP Monitor Working of various departments and hold regular meetings with RWAs.
Fever Due to Chikungunya, Dengue, Malaria was a GOD SENT opportunity to AAP Volunteers to Connect With People of Delhi.
Ø 5000 Thermometers Could Have Been Distributed to RWA,
Voluntary Organizations to Check Fever – 2 Million Times a Day.
Ø This Would Have PINPOINTED Hot Spots for Regular Fogging.
Ø Collection of Blood Samples of High Fever Cases Cost Little.
Ø Bulk Order TEST RATES a Fraction Actual Charged Per Case.
Ø AAP was expected to Install Lowest Cost FEVER Check & Control Program in the World Without Clogging Hospitals.
Ø AAP MLAs to Meet RWAs, Prepare Monthly Progress Reports.
Ø MLAs to Make Surprise Visits to Hot Spots Like Power Breakdown, Accidents, Floods, Bad Roads, Traffic Jams, Schools & Hospitals+.

UN Broadband Commission releases new country-by-country data on state of broadband access worldwide
Geneva, 15 September, 2016—India has overtaken the United States to become the world’s second largest Internet market, with 333 million users, trailing China’s 721 million. But a new report released today by the UN Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development also confirms that just six nations – including China and India – together account for 55% of the total global population still offline, because of the sheer size of their populations.
While Internet access is approaching saturation in richer nations, connectivity is still not advancing fast enough to help bridge development gaps in areas like education and health care for those in poorer parts of the world, according to the 2016 edition of The State of Broadband report.
Globally, an estimated 3.9 billion people are not using the Internet. But the Commission’s new report estimates that, between them, China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nigeria account for 55% of all unconnected people, while 20 countries – including the US – account for a full 75% of those not using the Internet. These findings suggest that targeted efforts in just a few key markets could help enormously in redressing the gaping ‘digital divide’ between those who are online and those still offline.
Released just ahead of the 14th meeting of the Commission in New York on September 18, The State of Broadband 2016 is optimistic about the potential of mobile broadband, with 165 countries now having deployed ‘4G’ high-speed mobile networks. As smartphone penetration reaches near-saturation in the US, Europe and mature markets in Asia like Japan and Korea, India and Indonesia in particular are expected to drive future growth. India also recently overtook the US to become the world’s second-largest smartphone market, with an estimated 260 million mobile broadband subscriptions.
The Commission argues that if today’s near-universal basic mobile phone access could be converted to high-speed mobile broadband access, mobile phones could serve as a major accelerator of development, driving rapid progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
“There is a large body of economic evidence for the role of affordable broadband connectivity as a vital enabler of economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection,” said ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao, who serves as co-Vice Chair of the Commission with UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova. “The Sustainable Development Goals for education, gender equality and infrastructure include bold targets for information and communication technology. The SDGs are achievable, but require urgent efforts and progress in the speed, degree and equality of development. The Commission believes this can be realized through broadband.”
“Broadband technologies can be powerful development multipliers,” Director-General Bokova added, “but this requires combined investments in access and in skills and in education. This is about opening new paths to create and share knowledge. It is about enhancing freedom of expression and about widening learning opportunities, especially for girls and women. This is about developing content that is relevant, local and multilingual.”
Issued annually, The State of Broadband report is a unique global snapshot of broadband network access and affordability, with country-by country data measuring broadband access against key advocacy targets set by the Commission in 2011.
This year’s figures show that, once again, the top ten developing countries forhousehold Internet penetration are all located in Asia or the Middle East. TheRepublic of Korea continues to have the world’s highest household Internet penetration, with 98.8% of homes connected; Qatar (96%) and United Arab Emirates (95%) rank second and third, respectively.
Iceland continues to have the highest percentage of individuals using the Internet(98.2%), while Luxembourg (97.3%) has surpassed Norway to take second place, and Andorra (97%) takes third place from Denmark.
Monaco remains very slightly ahead of Switzerland as the world leader in fixed broadband penetration, at over 47 subscriptions per 100 inhabitants compared with the Swiss figure of 45%. There are now seven economies (Monaco, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Denmark, the Netherlands, France and the Republic of Korea) where fixed broadband penetration exceeds 40%, up from six countries in 2014 and just one nation (Switzerland) in 2012.
Finland has the world’s highest percentage of active mobile broadband subscriptions, with 144 subscriptions per 100 people, followed by Singapore (142) and Kuwait (139). The Asia-Pacific region accounts for nearly half (48%) of all active mobile broadband subscriptions.
In total, there are now 91 economies where over 50% of the population is online, up from 79 in 2015. But whereas in 2014 the top ten countries for Internet use were all located in Europe, this year sees Bahrain (ranked 7th) and Japan (ranked 9th) join the group. The lowest levels of Internet usage are found in sub-Saharan Africa, with less than 3% of the population using the
Internet in a number of countries including Chad (2.7%), Sierra Leone (2.5%), Niger (2.2%), Somalia (1.8%) and Eritrea (1.1%).
Broadband Commission Global Targets
Progress towards the Commission’s 2011 targets has been mixed. As regardsTarget 1: National Broadband Plans, the Commission’s advocacy around the importance of broadband has seen the number of countries with a National Broadband Plan grow from 102 in 2010, when the Commission began its work, to 151 today.
Progress on Target 2: Affordability, has seen the majority of countries now having reached the Commission’s goal of basic fixed broadband costing less than 5% of monthly GNI – including 83 developing countries. However, to date only five of the 48 UN-designated Least Developed Countries have achieved the target.
Target 3: Connecting Homes to Broadband has seen good progress, with 52% of households globally having a broadband connection. In the developed world, 84% of households are now connected, but progress has also been solid in developing countries, where household access has risen from 38% last year to 41% in 2016, exceeding the target of 40% set by the Commission in 2011.
While the Least Developed Countries are expected to attain Target 4: Getting People Online, with 15% of the population connected by the end of this year, at current growth rates the Commission’s overall global target of 60% of people online is unlikely to be achieved before 2021.
Finally, the gender gap which Target 5: Equality of Access sought to redress has in fact widened slightly, from an Internet user gender gap of 11% in 2015 to 12% in 2016, equating to 257 million more men online than women.
The Broadband Commission comprises more than 50 leaders from across a range of government and industry sectors who are committed to actively assisting countries, UN experts and NGO teams to fully leverage the huge potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to drive new national SDG strategies in key areas like education, healthcare and environmental management.
The State of Broadband 2016 is the sixth edition of the Commission’s broadband connectivity report. Released annually, it is the only report that features country-by-country rankings based on access and affordability for over 160 economies worldwide.
