Climate change stripping Ladakh of its very identity
Leh, July 16 (101Reporters/IANS) Blame global warming, and Ladakh is one of those places where its more evident than elsewhere.

Markets will remain volatile, trade cautiously (Column: Market Watch)
Markets continued to remain choppy and volatile on expected lines. On the very first day of the week, they traded for quite some time in the band of 11,700-750 and once that broke, all hell was let loose. Markets saw significant losses on Monday. For the next three days they gained and once again gave a feeling that the level mentioned above was sacrosanct. While Friday was another bad day at the markets, the level held. The week ended with BSESENSEX losing 257.58 points or 0.65 per cent to close at 39,194.49 points while NIFTY lost 99.20 points or 0.84 per cent to close at 11,724.10 points. The broader indices saw BSE100, BSE200 and BSE500 lose 0.77 per cent, 0.77 per cent and 0.86 per cent respectively.

Decoding Congress failure in the 2019 general election (Comment)
The recently held general election was different from any other held in India in the sense that for this election, the ruling party as well as the opposition were in serious election mode for almost four years before it was held. On the ruling party side, the BJP knew well that its 2014 victory was more a mandate against the incumbent UPA government, and this factor would not be there in 2019.

Minions could have sportingly leaked portfolios in a carnival of democracy (Comment)
The great TV anchors, God's gift to Indian journalism, who have been Prime Minister Narendra Modi's shrill town criers these past five years, looked sheepish covering the spectacular swearing in ceremony at the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. These media stars from the loyalist school of journalism kept state secrets so deep in their hearts that they revealed not one portfolio, not even the time when the portfolios would be announced. There is an Arab saying: he knows not and knows not that he knows is a fool to be avoided.

As the new government takes office, it is time to reflect on some of the most critical areas that need attention to boost the investment and business climate in India. While structural reforms around land acquisition and labour laws remain on the top of the agenda, the new government would do well to focus on implementing incremental policy changes and addressing gaps in the various sectors that would significantly boost the investment climate.

May 23: A day to celebrate India's democracy (Comment)
On May 23, the seven-week long Indian election process will come to an end. The votes will be counted and a winner will be declared. No matter who wins, the real winner will be Indias democracy. I say this as an Indian American who has had the privilege of living in the two largest - and, I would add, greatest - democracies in the world. I have watched in awe as this years election in India has unfolded. It brought back memories of Indias national election of 2014. The scope and size of that election was unrivalled in the history of the world.

The eager beavers, the trigger happy foursome lurching towards war are what Irans Foreign Minister Javad Zarif describes as Trumps "B" team - Bibi Netanyahu, John Bolton, bin Salman and bin Zayed.

We need a clearer policy against political violence (Column: Spy's Eye)
The General Election this time has been marked by a significant amount of violence in the run-up to the polls in several parts of the country. The bitterness amongst the contesting parties in states like West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra precipitated clashes between rival workers testing the efficacy and impartiality of the local police. The institution of the State Electoral Officer did not seem to be strong enough in monitoring the performance of the district police officials and taking action against those who showed serious dereliction of duty.

News on Indian credit markets over the last few weeks provide us with pointers that should help shape policy and business strategy. The struggle to get bidders for Jet Airways and the tepid response from investors towards Indias fledgeling municipal bond market point towards the need for a better-structured credit market, especially as the nature of businesses evolve even as the demand for credit rises to finance consumption and infrastructure needs.

MCA likely to debar Deloitte for 5 years (IANS Exclusive)
N0ew Delhi, April 28 (IANS) Even as Deloitte Haskins and Sells remains perched precariously on the high wire over its questionable role in the IL&FS audit process, it appears that the Ministry of Corporate Affairs may invoke section 140 (5) of the Companies Act to debar the firm for alleged malpractice in IL&FS accounts. This extreme action is being warranted after Deloitte's alleged misdemeanours and conduct in the IL&FS case.

Films and politics (Column: B Town)
The phenomenon of film actors joining forces with politicians is not a new thing. In the South, it happened much earlier while the Hindi film actors took the cue a bit late. One of the reasons the Hindi film industry kept away from politics for long was that the rulers and, as such, politicians were seen as enemies of film folk. Not one, there were many Swords of Damocles hung over the film industry by the rulers and usually used as tools.

(Trans)mission Impossible? A Discussion On Monetary Policy (Guest Column)
New Delhi (IANS): The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has now delivered a second successive rate cut in the current calendar year. But a bystander only observing the bond and money markets may have been excused in believing that the second cut was actually no cut at all, or indeed maybe even a hike! Thus yields have risen across the board since the April rate cut. The quantum of rise has been between 25-50 bps in money market and front end bond yields.

Ram's birth in Ayodhya: Memorable view from sanctum sanctorum (Comment)
There was a singular absence of frenzy last week in Ayodhya on the occasion of Ram Navmi. As the campaign for election 2019 rose to a crescendo, one would have expected the Hindutva Brigade to turn up in full force for several reasons. To obtain the Lords blessings for the do or die battle. And to focus on Ayodhya to keep the issue simmering during these crucial elections. True, the matter is in court but so is the Sadhvi Pragya Thakur matter. When were such niceties sacrosanct for the current lot? More likely, the Mandir-Masjid soufflé is not rising.

Recent news about an increase in Indian corporates and state entities issuing dollar bonds is welcome news, especially since it clearly shows investor appetite for lending to credible Indian business models. However, relatively easy liquidity and high investor appetite for lending in the international markets must be tempered by the fact that borrowing in foreign currencies is beneficial for businesses with certain specific balance sheet structures.
