Re: Indian Agriculture and Agro-based Industry

Incorrect. As the economy develops share of agri in GDP will go down. Gross value addition has very little to do with farmers as it happens after farming. Not an agrarian crisis.

The Tamil parties are the decider as neither side has majority. They are unlikely to back Rajapakse. SC is likely to restore parliament and ask for vote.

Re: Indian Sports and Entertainment Industry

India-Belgium 2-2 draw. India should have won 3-1. Missed one sitter and conceded a goal through defensive lapse. If they beat Canada comfortably then they will head group and go directly to QF where they are likely to meet Germany or Holland.

Re: Maldives Civil-Military Issues

We will need some kind of security arrangement with Maldives - may be a small naval detachment (base we will most likely have in Mauritius and Seychelles). Expect China to sooner or later try to smuggle in like in Sri Lanka using its proxies. This needs to be prevented.

Re: Indian Railways Thread (Dec 2015)

It should be a hub of HSR and spoke of semi-HSR. Sufficient to cover all of India. No need to spend too much trying to connect every city with HSR. Diamond quad should be sufficient.

Re: Currency Demonetisation and Future course of Indian Economy

venkat_r you are trolling. There is plenty of information over years in the Eco forum to show what the goals were and what were the outcomes. Where is your data? Just quoting far-left websites and videos is not going to do. Show us the data.

Re: Indian Roads Thread

No but you can tell from several youtube videos. WPE, shoulder is good for only motorcyles, will block slow lane if truck stops. Landscaping is incomplete. Finish of road looks ordinary. In contrast EPE which was done by NHAI, I believe, is world std.

Unlike EPE, WPE does not have proper shoulders and looks inferior. WPE is not upto expressway standards. They have cut corners.

Re: Indian Railways Thread (Dec 2015)

The gangetic belt is densely populated. It will catch up in economic terms by the time HSR reaches there which is about 10-20 years that too only trunk route i.e. Amritsar/Delhi to Kolkata. Smaller routes for HSR are not viable anywhere specially now that you have semi-HSR.

The optimum scenario for India is HSR for diamond quadrilateral and no more, semi-HSR for intercity and slow trains for more stops in quad tracks on trunk routes, RRTS is for suburban.
