Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Aug 26 2015

Wouldn't choosing the Equity option of NPS be similar to investing in an Equity Growth Direct plan of a good Mutual Fund? 19% is very good but there are good MFs that give the same returns. The returns could vary based on the market performance just as in a MF. The only difference is, if we choose a...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

Matrimc Saar, thanks for the info. I contacted him but sadly I cannot buy entire set due to some constraints. Hence made a trip to Koti bookshops todin. At Koti, after many redirections, false leads and outright lies I was able to get Veyipadagalu in Vishalandhra bookshop (in Gandhi house). Also bo...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

The first book got Gnanapith Award. PVNR translated into Hindi. I don't know why Gnanapith award books don't get automatically translated for wider circulation. Maybe OT here but: 10 to 15% percent of the book is poetry that is almost impossible for a translator to do justice to while translating. ...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

... In the Historical fiction category, 1. Veyi Padagalu by Viswanatha Satyanarayana comes first to my mind. The literary impact of this book was enormous. 2. Kanyasulkam by Gurazada Apparao Thank you, SrinivasK-ji. Do you know if the two books you have named have already been translated to English...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

Agree with pkiran above. While we do want BJP to grow in TG/AP, it just does not have the leadership AND grass root level cadre to make that happen anytime soon. It must be a 10 year project and preferably should go alone while it does this. At the national level BJP already has more than 50% of the...

Re: Discussion on Indian Epics, Texts, Treatises & Kathas

Would you concur that atmaarpaan is close enough to euthanasia? If not then why not? This is an interesting question. I think these two are distinct if one assigns the widely accepted end goal to euthanasia which is to "escape"/"to allow the escape of" physical (and/or mental - ...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

The question now for us is why is TRS trying so hard to impress upon people that Telangana was not automatically part of Bharat and it was forced to be? What would be the advantage of such a strategy? Is it possible the recent alliance with MIM has anything to do with it? Owaisi family has a history...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

CBN asked and took help from Pavan and allied with BJP in 2014 because he knew he couldn't pull it off alone. Even after that blitz and with all the -ve publicity for Jagan, Jagan still got 60 assembly seats. As incumbent, his popularity must take some dent after 5 years. Unless he actually delivers...

Re: Telugu States' News and Discussion

AP government should put statues on the Krishna barrage or near Vizag beach, of leaders/freedom fighters/poets belonging to not just Andhra and Telangana, but to whole of India. Maybe wishful thinking - but, people need to be reminded that the idea of belonging to India is sweeter than the idea that...

Re: General Elections 2014 : RESULTS thread

Is there any place from where I can download the election results (all the data that is available on the eciresults.nic.in website) in an excel format? I want to see if I can analyze it further by adding additional data points. I can do this manually if it is not available; I searched online for tha...
