QUOTATIONS AND CAPTIONS

  • The lessons of NFHS-5 must be used to improve social development indices.
  • India, while moving to renewable energy, e-vehicle use, and a digital economy, needs to focus on sustainable well-being.
  • Courts need to ensure a more searching inquiry into the lives of death row prisoners, particularly the mitigating factors which help humanise the perpetrator, creating the possibility of compassion in passing judgement.
  • India’s latest health report card says our total fertility rate has fallen to 2.0, so headcount stability is a given. The state mustn’t interfere with family size—it violates our Constitution.
  • The efforts to stem stunted growth among children too have not been encouraging, even as malnourishment remains a formidable challenge. An increase in public health investment is called for.
  • The efforts to stem stunted growth among children too have not been encouraging, even as malnourishment remains a formidable challenge. An increase in public health investment is called for.
  • Most economies today understand the power of data-driven opportunities for trade and India has to step up its game at the global stage on the digital front.
  • India’s outlook to shape a futuristic digital economy could only be successful with the investments or riches generated through trade.
  • India needs to emphasise to the world where its scorecard is better than many of the developed countries, who frequently lecture India on emission flows.
  • Cryptocurrencies are not just another trading activity. They have the potential to turn into a lethal weapon in the wrong hands with sinister motives.
  • The logic of awarding death penalty to rapists is based on the belief that rape is a fate worse than death.
  • The government must reduce inequality, not hype up the GDP growth rate. Income and wealth are clustering right at the top, concealing how the poor are getting pushed to a corner.

50- WORD TALK

  • ICDS, India’s first scheme to tackle malnutrition, was launched in 1975. Yet, almost half a century later, nutritional indicators continue to fall in NFHS-5. This proves the more of the same approach isn’t working anymore and calls for urgent correctives, starting with raising the Rs 10 per beneficiary cost limit.
