Its time to make a move scented with epic pressure diplomacy

The interim relief in Hague is not the End.  But it has given us a chance to make another move towards Islamabad. Islamabad has always done contrary actions with support of China.

New Delhi has to make Islamabad to save face on order of execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav. New Delhi should keep its pace to expose and isolate Islamabad in case of international conventions as  well as for its support for terror.

Its the time to be the Iron fist in velvet glove and make Beijing incovinient to continue provide unfit support to Islamabad not only at UN but anywhere else. New Delhi should make Islamabad deal on issues peacefully, as it is always beneficial for both the countries.

Tackling Unemployment :Not just through Economic Growth

There have been some alarming signs of increasing unemployment in India from past few  years with jobs created in labor intensive sectors going down to 1.35 lac in 2015 from 9.5 lac in 2011 and unemployment rate going up to whopping 5% in 2015 from 3.5% in 2011. These signs have certainly caught an eye of policy makers who are planning to address the issue through increased economic growth.

But sheer economic growth can’t be envisaged as the panacea for unemployment. Economic growth can be achieved by either creating more industries which will create new jobs or improving the productivity of the existing industry, which won’t necessarily create new jobs.

What policy makers need to focus on is to shift labor from informal sectors such as agriculture to more formal sectors like manufacturing. Though this solution is not without it’s reservations, countermeasures like labor reforms can aid to accomplish this goal.
