Re: Indian History Discussions - III

Sai: Great Find. I hope someone emails it to John Dayal and the vatican. A superb article on Sulekha. Among other things, this article contains a wealth of historical information on early Christianity in India. The erudite author has served in the US army. http://www.sulekha.com/column.asp?cid=305819

Re: P V Narsimha Rao

Re: P V Narsimha Rao

Privatization helped in booming of industries, so more ppl who were enterpreneur got rich and helped in generating more jobs. Since no pension plans and job security was offered, they were offered more pay. I might be wrong here but AFAIK, until Lib, even the private sector wages were not that much...

Re: P V Narsimha Rao

YAWN. The number of desi students to hit the US shores rose to the highest among all countries. Some 68,000. I am sure that most of them came with some support offered here in the US like an RA or TA. There is a reason why the flow of indian students to the US was a trickle during Kaushal's time, op...

If you were in government service it didnt do much for you. Hence the construct of liberalization and finances is indeed not as self-evident as you make ...
