I just read this whole inaugural speech : Gaborone Central MP Honourable Phenyo Butale's response to SONA: Delivered before parliament on Wednesday 19 November 2014. Madam speaker let take this opportunity to thank you for the chance to make this inaugural address to this august house. Allow me to echo the apt words of my leader, the people’s president His Excellency Duma Gideon Boko, and pay tribute to a great son of this soil, an honourable man who if it was not for the evil forces that connived to deprive this nation of his eloquence and leadership, i have no doubt that Gomolemo Thatayaone ‘Sir G’ Motswaledi would be standing where the present speaker is standing and he was no doubt going to illuminate this house with well researched debates, at the heart of which was going to be nothing but the interest of his people.

‘Nandana’s nudity is sensuous!’ Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen ditched economics and discussed cinema with daughter Nandana Sen and me in Mumbai, October 2009. I was editor of the prestigious ‘Bombay Times’ then. The world renowned economist thought his daughter’s nudity in the controversial film ‘Rang Rasiya’ (which releases Nov. 7, seven years after it was made) was sensuous. This is what he had to say… It's funny, with a daughter like the lovely international actress Nandana Sen, you would have thought Nobel Prize economist Prof. Amartya Sen would be well informed about cinema. But he’s not. He knows just about five people connected with filmmaking. And these he counted for me with much difficulty and some prompting from Nandana . “I knew Satyajit Ray extremely well,” he began, “he and I studied at Santiniketan. I had huge admiration for him. And I know Mira Nair, Shyam Benegal, and, and... what’s his name, Mrinal Sen! I do know Nandita Das and like her films, also. And I met... ...

Good news. The Film Review Council of the Sangh Parivar has given a big thumbs down to the fim Haider. It is scurrilous and offends the dignity of our brave jawans. In fact there is a concerted effort to review all the films made after Raja Harishchandra to see if there is suspicious content that pollutes the minds of our Akhand Bharatiyas. It is a humongous task as you can well imagine but made possible by the fact that the council members (many of whom gave a big thumbs down to other sickular rotters like Romila Thapar, Amartya Sen,MF Husain and more recently Wendy Doniger) do not actually need to see the films. Just as they do not need to read any books.Word of mouth, hearsay and rumor suffice. In emulating Gandhiji's three monkeys it is ensured that only the truest of emotions and beliefs, untainted by paid news and pseudo intellectuals, will carry the day. Jai Hind.
Peace Proposal 2012 Human Security & Sustainability : Sharing Reverence for the Dignity of Life by Daisaku Ikeda President, Soka Gakkai International Synopsis The economist Amartya Sen, a renowned advocate of the methods and approaches of human security, has emphasized "the dangers of sudden deprivation." Such unanticipated threats can take the form of natural disaster and conflict, and can also arise from economic crises and rapid environmental degradation brought about by climate change. It is crucial that we respond vigorously to such threats, which can grievously undermine people's lives, livelihoods and dignity. It is the nature of disasters that they destroy those things that are most precious, necessary and irreplaceable to human life. They inflict the suffering of the loss of friends and family members, the destruction of homes and the shredding of the bonds of community. When disasters strike, society as a whole must be prepared to offer long-term support, sharing the responsibility to assist pe ...

Some years ago when I was returning to England from a short trip abroad (I was then Master of Trinity College in Cambridge), the immigration officer at Heathrow, who scrutinized my Indian passport rather thoroughly, posed a philosophical question of some intricacy. Looking at my home address on the immigration form (Master’s Lodge, Trinity College, Cambridge), he asked whether the Master, whose hospitality I evidently enjoyed, was a close friend of mine. This gave me pause since it was not altogether clear to me whether I could claim to be a friend of myself. On some reflection, I came to the conclusion that the answer must be yes, since I often treat myself in a fairly friendly way, and furthermore, when I say silly things, I can immediately see that with friends like me, I do not need any enemies.

Identity and Violence: The Illusion of Destiny by Amartya Sen 240pp, Similar experiences can produce very different philosophies. Witnessing the Russian revolution as a child in Petrograd, Isaiah Berlin saw a crowd dragging off a struggling man, pale and terrified, to be killed. He used to say that the episode gave him a life-long horror of violence, and it undoubtedly bred in him a suspicion of theories that suggested a radiant future could be realised by the use of force. The experience did not make him a pacifist - he served as a government official in the second world war - nor did it lead him to condemn all revolutions. What it did was implant in him a deep sense of the fragility of freedom. Unlike most liberal thinkers, Berlin understood that, while freedom may be a universal value, it is far from being an overriding human need. Humans want freedom but they also fear it, and in times of insecurity they tend to retreat into closed, hostile groups. Reason can help us understand this process, but it ca ...

I had a debate with a Brahman, and he said people like Swami Vivekananda (original name Narendra Nath Dutt) was born in a Kaesto (a caste lower than Brahman) family by mistake. He was supposed to be born in a Brahman family. I don't know whether or not the message was conveyed to him by any angel or any demon.

The Controversy over Bharat Ratna to Amartya Sen has been doing rounds of Media and Political circles during past few days, but very few know that it is Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who is the sole victim of Withdrawl of Bharat Ratna in the history of India. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose was awarded Bharat Ratna posthumously in 1992. The award was later withdrawn in response to a Supreme Court of India directive following a Public Interest Litigation filed in the Court against the posthumous nature of the award. The Award Committee could not give conclusive evidence of Bose’s death and thus it invalidated the posthumous award. Bharat Ratna is the Republic of India’s highest civilian award, for performance of highest order in any field of human endeavour. Till date 41 Persons have been conferred Bharat Ratna award, inlcluding Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan and Nelson Mandela, the two non-citizens of India. It is also an established fact that more than Half of the Bharat Ratna Awards have been given away to Politi ...

Beautiful Bangladesh Prepares For Change But if you leave out politics from the equation, "Beautiful Bangladesh" is a country of enormous potential. It's consistently high rates of GDP growth (6 - 6.7% in the past decade)  for the last two decades has earned it a place in Goldman Sachs' Next Eleven  - a list of 11 emerging countries. Besides, high rates of GDP growth, Bangladesh has made huge strides in different social indicators and in the area of providing healthcare to the poor. According to Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen, India should learn from neighbouring Bangladesh about how to tap the energy of women in its efforts to spur development. In most of the social indicators, Bangladesh has gone ahead of India, according to Sen . "Bangladesh is one of the few countries on track to achieve its Millennium Development Goals related to child and maternal mortality."  "Bangladesh, the eighth most populous country in the world with about 153 million people, has recently been applauded ...
Why is there so much outrage in the air? There is outrage in the west. There is outrage in the east, in north, in south, up, down, almost everywhere. The surly US of A is outraged because Edward Snowden is in Russia. The munificent man who leaked the dirty paternalistic secrets has finally found home in a country which would shame the moral custodians of superiority forever. Europe is outraged over its falling fortunes. Economy is slowing down. There is a talk of neo-neo-capitalistic order but it will take some time to implement, thus the outrage. Pakistan has its share of outrage too because expressing outrage is all the country has learnt to do. But China is not outraged. It has passed on the opportunity to the neighbors on the west …. … which brings us to India where Congress is outraged because Narendra Modi has become a contender for PM’s post against the party’s pampered ‘prince’. The party is also outraged because Chandan Mitra has expressed outrage against Amartya Sen and wants the nex ...

Why Amartya Sen is wrong: Jagdish Bhagwati The issue is if Sen’s policy prescriptions will ameliorate shortfalls in social indicators or accentuate them, says Bhagwati Jagdish Bhagwati Share First Published: Tue, Jul 23 2013. 04 26 PM IST Illustration: Jayachandran/Mint Also Read Reforms are needed, combined with health and education: Amartya Sen Gandhi vs Modi is actually Sen vs Bhagwati Everything you wanted to know about the Sen-Bhagwati debate Maneka Gandhi slams Varun for praising Rahul Gandhi AAP: A Rorschach test Updated: Thu, Jul 25 2013. 05 06 PM IST In a brilliant article on Bhagwati versus Sen published in Mint on 10 July, Niranjan Rajadhyaksha unwittingly took one step in the wrong direction in arguing that I could be the economist for Narendra Modi and my good friend Amartya Sen for Rahul Gandhi. Let me explain. First, I have argued (with Arvind Panagariya) that Gujarat has produced growth and also that the change in its social indicators is remarkable, whereas Kerala is by no means the gr ...
How interesting that the Outlook editor Vinod Mehta says "Columbia Professors Bhagwati and Panagariya" have been part of the holding up of the BJP manifesto, as they are talking about trade liberalisation when the RSS Swadeshi folks are against that etc. Both Jagdish Bhagwati and Arvind Panagariya are Americans, Bhagwati being a declared Democrat. What are they doing writing a party manifesto for an election in India? My criticism from last year of both them and their adversary, Amartya Sen, a "Non Resident", who has declared for the BJP's opponents, remains...
"The Argumentative Indian" by Amartya Sen. Nice book to understand Indian Culture n identity
A debate with a friend: Rugved Reddy : Amartya Sen is an overrated economist. *period* Iqbal Latif: Why? Pl Rugved Reddy: Iqbal he is an unabashed supporter of distribution of wealth rather than creation of it. I don't think it is productive or sensible. Iqbal Latif: I beg to differ Rugved Jee, I present my case, it is all about a case example that Modi Jee does not want to listen. It is a debate on Kerala Model vs. Gujarat Model. It should be 'Kerala and Gujarat' models to walk down the aisle and form a new hybrid for good of the nation. It is not about Dr. Sen and Dr. Bhagwati! I just don't see the need of this kind of polarization on the way forward. A battle has to be won on all fronts. From grass root eradication of poverty to sending Mars mission, big ambitions always need big open inclusive minds.

This highly up-to-date on-line course organized on Cousera by Duke University is designed for anyone concerned with the best ways of learning and thriving in the world we live in now. It's for students, teachers, professors, researchers, administrators, policy makers, business leaders, job counselors and recruiters, parents, and lifelong learners around the globe. The full, whimsical name of the class is: “The History and Future of (Mostly) Higher Education: Or, How We Can Unlearn Our Old Patterns and Relearn for a Happier, More Productive, Ethical, and Socially-Engaged Future”. That subtitle is inspired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen who has said that "all education is vocational" in the sense that it is our job, as educators, to help train people for the vocation of leading better lives. So are we fulfilling that educational objective, from kindergarten to professional school? Or are we training students with the methods, philosophy, and metrics designed for the Fordist era of the Mode ...

Amartya Sen on Kejriwal's Aam Adami Party. A prominent face in the Lok Sabha elections is Arvind Kejriwal who will campaign in Haryana on Sunday. Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen has called AAP's success in Delhi Assembly election a major achievement and saluted its electoral strategy. He said, "To be able to win electoral support massively in Delhi on the basis of a program which is about equity even though their understanding of equity may be somewhat distorted, but I thought that what they were trying to do to win it without appeal to communal division, caste division was a major achievement. So I salute AAP electoral strategy and success." On the issue of making policy for the aam aadmi, Sen said, "When it comes to making policy, they have to identify who the aam aadmi are as it is a variable term. If you are looking at the poorest of poor they are not asking for cheaper electricity, they don't have electricity." Sen has also asked the AAP to re-examine its position and widen the definition of aam aadmi. He ...
Amartya Sen salutes electoral strategy, asks it to be more inclusive. include Sen too. Chandan Mitra may object ;)
"17th century Diggi Palace is not just another heritage property!" By- Editorial | January 14, 2014 -From a mere 100 visitors in 2006 to a massive footfall of around 200,000 in 2013, the 17th century Diggi Palace shot into global fame from being just another heritage property to a literature hub as it served as the constant host of the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) for the last six years. This eclectic marriage of literature and heritage has benefited both. So much so that the Diggi Palace is now synonymous with the JLF. From planning special, elaborate menus to setting up colourful marquees, the owners start their preparations three months in advance to ensure the five-day literature feast doesn’t disappoint. This year the festival runs from Jan 17 to 21 and boasts of 200 authors from eclectic backgrounds, including heavyweights like Nobel Prize winners Amartya Sen and Harold Varmus, Man Booker Prize winners Jhumpa Lahiri, Tash Aw, Alison Macleod and Jim Crace, Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan, Olympic b ...

Nalanda University: Very Old School After years of delay, the university has begun operating out of a small campus near the ruins of the old school and will have a partial launch next year:- It was one of the world's leading universities long before Harvard and Cambridge were set up. At its peak, Nalanda was a centre of excellence not just for philosophy and Buddhist studies but also for literature and mathematics. Today, about 800 years after it was razed by invaders, a group of scholars led by Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen is reviving the ancient university in Bihar as part of a wider Asian renaissance. Sen says he had always dreamt of resurrecting the ancient university. "Since my childhood, Nalanda had a big presence in my life. I was around 10 or 11 when my grandfather took me to Nalanda for the first time and I was completely bowled over by the vision it offered to humanity," he says. "It is very inspiring to have the campus close to the ruins. I have been there some 20 times and at every visit I've be ...

7 wishes of Prof. Amartya Sen at Jaipur Literature Festival :- Wish 1:- The serious cultivation of classical studies for a balanced education. Humanities are important because “you should learn to speak in an articulate way about ideas that are inescapably imprecise.” Wish 2. He said as a left-winger he yearned for a “strong and flourishing right wing party that is secular, not communal.” He said there was a vacuum where there had once been the Swatantra Party for a “clear-headed pro-market pro-business party that does not depend on religious politics.” Wish 3 was for the Left to be stronger but more focused on "removing severe deprivations of the really poor and downtrodden" instead of fighting American imperialism through "various parliamentary moves that have reduced the number of seats they themselves have in the Parliament." Wish 4 for the media to be more responsive to the needs of the poorest and less "single-minded in their coverage of the world of glitzy entertainment". Of course, tha ...

I attended a function in Rashtrapati Bhavan on Saturday where NDTV recognized 25 living global Indian legends. TCS sponsored the event, hence my attendance. It was an impressive array of personalities. NDTV had asked them to give 3 messages to the next generation. It was interesting to hear all of them. One hand, there were industrialists like Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, Narayan Murthy, Indira Nui etc. who talked about dreaming big, working hard, honesty, integrity etc. which fundamentally centered on positioning you in society. On the other hand, there were people like Ila Bhatt (social worker), MS Swaminathan (agricultural scientist) who talked about poverty, diversity, food security etc. which is centered on society in general and not individual. In between there were actors (Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan), cricketers (Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev), Scientists (C. N.

She works in USA and her office colleague is coming to India for inspection work at their plant in Aurangabad. She asked him, how he is feeling?

And even I want to come back as soon as possible.” She tried to make him aware of India’s contribution by saying Aryabatta’s invention of ‘0’. About Vedas, Upanishads, Sutras and their contribution. About The world's first university at Takshila. About Brahmagupta and Bhaskara 2’s gravity concept, World’s first navigation (was born in the river Sindh) and Ashoka’s care of Environment.

The Penguin Lecture is organised by Penguin Publications and the luminaries invited to speak; speak on a topic of their choice. Amitabh Bachchan spoke about cinema; specifically, Indian Cinema. He went on to say that feature films are the great popular passion of India, cutting across all social divides of caste, class, gender, region, religion and language. They absorbed all other performing arts from here and abroad, and churned. Commenting on how intensely passionate Indians are about films, he said “This filmi nectar is an ambrosia so intoxicating, that it has achieved what no Indian politician has ever done, could ever dream of. In our cinema, the bad guys always come to no good.” He also said Indian films have no borders and boundaries; they extend beyond all lines and unite people. “Our pos ...
