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. Amartya Sen, Identity and Violence, London, Allen Lane, 2006

BJP's thumping majority under Modi Ji's leadership is a resounding victory for power of democracy. I congratulate the whole team and hope that BJP, while providing good governance, will also stick to true secular principals with protection of minorities enshrined in Constitution of India & dispel fears of Liberals like Amartya Sen ( Nobel Prize winning economist) who had expressed those fears prior to elections.
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 ...

Those who claimed to leave India if Modi won (statement made by Shahrukh Khan, Sam Pitroda, Amartya Sen etc etc) can please pack their bags and leave. :-)
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. I could not finish the list of non-Brahman maestros before he left: Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Prof Satyen Bose, Satyajit Roy, Partha Pratim Majumder, Jibananda Dash, Amartya Sen, Master da Surjo Sen, Charan Kobi Mukundo Das, Jagadish Chandra Bose, Dr Bidhan Roy. All men are created equal. We no longer live in the middle age or any other age of discrimination.

Ford Foundation’s link with Congress, NAC, AAP In our reports, ‘AAP part of international anti-India racket’ part 1 and part 2’, we revealed the Ford Foundation connection of the following Indian NGOs: • Sampoorn Parivartan (later christened Parivartan) of Arvind Kejriwal and Kabir of both Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia. • ICSSR of Jawaharlal Nehru University that funded Yogendra Yadav. • PRADAN of Meera Sanyal.

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) [1] for the last two decades has earned it a place in Goldman Sachs' Next Eleven [2] - 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 [3]. "Bangladesh is one of the few countries on track to achieve its Millennium Development Goals related to child and maternal mortality." [5] "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 ...

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 ...

"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. Rao (Bharat Ratna), Venkatraman Ramakrishnan (Nobel Laureate)), Amartya Sen, artists (Anish Kapoor, Zubin Mehta), writers (Vikram Seth) ...

Why India is great country? Are we making the country Proud? An incident happened to my friend made me to think about it. 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 ...

A free press and an active opposition constitute the best ‘early warning system’ that a country threatened by famine can have. Dr. Amartya Sen, Noble Laureate. This excerpt of Amartya Sen depicts the importance of an ‘opposition party’ for Bangladesh. Both ruling party AL and the opp BNP should realise the facts that they can be complementary to each other for the sake democracy and the nation. But what are they doing on the contrary and the long term effect is alarming.

Poverty leads to an intolerable waste of talent. Is not just a lack of money; it is not having the capability to realize one´s full potential as a human being. "Amartya Sen"
Amartya Sen's on the role of basic education The country is proud of Amartya Sen that he has brought glory to the country. Bengalis have hailed him as a great and "quintessential Bengali intellectual", yet others have written about his marxism and his view about market economy, globalisation, and so on. A few have written about his concern for victims of famines and his theory that famines are caused not by shortage of food grains. The Bengal famine in 1943 - one of the significant works of Amartya Sen is on this famine - in which more than three million people died without raising a finger by way of protest, was caused by hoarding of food grains. The government failed to handle this great calamity. All these are, no doubt, important aspects of Amartya Sen's studies and contributions. Regrettably, the most important contribution of Sen has hardly been noticed by commentators including academics and political leaders. This relates to the role and importance of basic education in economic development, which ...

European Institutions. World Solidarity & the New Capacity Building Programme. Important Breakthrough. Some of you may remember that during the closing session of a three day congress on Democracy that was held at the Belgian Royal Academy of Sciences in May 2013, I reminded Economics Nobel Prize Winner (1998) Professor Amartya Sen (Harvard University) before a packed audience that the top priority of the Third Millennium was World Society Well Being and Quality of Life. I said that if the latter became the international referential, thereby changing the international mindset, this would become a strong incentive to catalyse the blending of all the disconnected roadmaps, action plans and grids together. Professor Sen completely agreed. However, to boost everything forward, the above statement also had to be acknowledged and recognised by international institutions. During an important workshop on SMEs that took place at the European Commission on 28th November 2013 in Brussels, not only was a need for an ...

Gender inequality dictates the daily lives of thousands of women in the Indian Subcontinent and manifests itself in many ways. The incident on 16th December 2012 saw this manifest in the traumatic gang rape of a 23-year-old female that shook the pillars of Indian society. Many questions were raised as a result: What had led to this act? What was the mindset behind it? Had society allowed these attitudes to flourish? The UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon issued this statement: ‘Violence against women must never be accepted, never excused, never tolerated’. The UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women called on the Indian Government to do everything in their power to take up radical reforms, ensure justice and robust Public Services to help women. Responses have led to Indians questioning cultural mindsets and the effectiveness of the state’s legal status to protect women. Let us firstly look at the cultural obstacles many women face not only in the Indian Subcontinent but also in man ...

"Advancing gender equality, through reversing the various social and economic handicaps that make women voiceless and powerless, may also be one of the best ways of saving the environment, and countering the dangers of overcrowding and other adversities associated with population pressure. The voice of women is critically important for the future of the world – not just for women’s future." Amartya Sen

Tenzing Norgay was shadowed by the mere pace of reaching the summit, but there I was, bowling my oxygen-starved lungs out. Thank God... Miyaki(the yeti escort) buried me deep in her fur. But not deep enough... otherwise I would not have got frosted hair. Growing up was so boring that I memorised the Illiad and the Odyssey to spend time.

well while surfying d net gt an awaesm humorous info about 50 reason not to marry a bong :-p :-p its lengthy bt intersetn 1. So much about Bengali men is about food. A significant number of contemporary Bengali men, unlike their forefathers, condemn fish. Excepting ilish, for the men love it too. “I don’t have fish, only ilish,” many men have been heard confessing in a tender moment. Since they love ilish, they will not care if others do so as well. Love makes them blind. The men will have the best peti (belly piece), for they say they are afraid of the kaantas, fishbones. Ilish abounds in them, which makes it a challenge. Women, at some point in their life, learn to tackle the kaantas, but confronting them able-bodied men become bashful and tremble. It pays off. Women are left to work their way through the thick-with-bones gaada pieces and men just sit back and allow the ilish to work on them. Eventually, the women get to liking chewing the bones and they are considered sexy while they are at it ...

Mumbai Congress chief wants singer Lata Mangeshkar stripped of Bharat Ratna for praising Modi. Now this is the most liberal, secular and progressive thought I have read today.

'Nobel-prize winning economists Joseph Stiglitz and Amartya Sen have admitted that GDP does not capture the human condition and urged the creation of different tools to gauge the wellbeing of nations. This is why countries like Bhutan have adopted the gross national happiness in place of gross domestic product to calculate progress. We need to create measures beyond GDP, and economies beyond the global supermarket, to rejuvenate real wealth. We need to remember that the real currency of life is life itself . . .'

Illuminating symposium- Social Resilience and Sustainability: Bonus: Got to meet Amartya Sen
Published on Friday, November 1, 2013 by The Guardian/UK How Economic Growth Has Become Anti-Life An obsession with growth has eclipsed our concern for sustainability, justice and human dignity. But people are not disposable – the value of life lies outside economic development by Vandana Shiva 'Water extracted beyond nature’s capacity to renew and recharge creates a water famine'. (Photograph: Joe McNally/Getty) Limitless growth is the fantasy of economists, businesses and politicians. It is seen as a measure of progress. As a result, gross domestic product (GDP), which is supposed to measure the wealth of nations, has emerged as both the most powerful number and dominant concept in our times. However, economic growth hides the poverty it creates through the destruction of nature, which in turn leads to communities lacking the capacity to provide for themselves. The concept of growth was put forward as a measure to mobilise resources during the second world war. GDP is based on creating an artificial ...

Rural folks, underprivileged growing rapidly…..could create UPA-3 A series of stories being run in “The Mint” on rural prosperity (based on NSSO data) as well as the piece by Swaminathan S Anklesaria Aiyer in the TOI last Sunday finally draw focus to areas mostly forgotted by mass media…..the ones that are the pet of the UPA government. There is a surge in growth rates in the rural areas in general. More specifically, it is the underprivileged communities that are doing far better economically. This probably explains why Rahul Gandhi usually travels to rural areas for his speeches, away mostly from TV cameras, while the urban-middle-class centric BJP’s PM aspirant Narendra Modi almost always clings to the bigger towns. The UPA has made it a business to cater to the rural folks and the underprivileged. Take the MNREGA as an example. For the poor who want to work, and who have nowhere to do so, the MNREGA provides a way out. By providing a guarantee for 100 days work at Rs 100 a day, the poorest o ...

What Holds India back: We Indians don’t know about our own culture, religion, heritage, etc. We only acknowledge our talents when it is acknowledged by a foreign nation. See the plight of C.V. Raman, Har Gobind Khorana, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Amartya Sen, V. S. Naipaul and Venkatraman Ramakrishnan. Even we still do not know about Satyendra Nath Bose’s findings with Albert Einstein as he was not acknowledged by any foreign nation. Radhanath Sikdar, who perfectly calculated the height of Peak XV, currently known as Mount Everest remains only in the page of history. Actually we are the fools who love those who paint beautiful art from sand or say appeasers us, but hate who shows us the mirror or the facts. What is holding India back is lack of self-assessment and self-realization. You see practically we are in a kind of Kleptocracy or say ruled by thieves. We are emotional fools/ aggressive voters which include educated ones including me and it started since we submitted ourselves to British to till ...
It is hard to read/ listen to Jagdish Bhagwati & not feel disgusted! Apart from constantly bullying Amartya Sen, he (1) never misses a chance to tout himself as a contender, (2) considers Brahmins as some intrinsically gifted sect, (3) calls Rahul Gandhi- hold your breathe- 'remarkably intelligent'!
FAULTS IN INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM By FAILURE Amartya Sen said that Education is the only solution of all problems in India. Our Government is doing, whatever it can, to provide Education to all sections of society. Thanx to government commitment to provide education to all, we, today, have Right To Education, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, Vocational based Education System,Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya Yojna, Shakshar Bharat etc. We have many IITs and IIMs today. Still not a single Indian Education Institution makes it place in top 200 World Class Education Institutions. Why? We are the world largest democracy. Democracy means participation of all. It has been said that through Education Democracy can be strengthened.But even a graduate student doesn't know How our political system run? How President is elected? What are the powers of President and Prime Minister?How to claim our rights?How many forms of Government systems exist in world?Why? The problem is in Education Quality. Students go to school, learn on ...

Bengali famous people Noted Bengali saints, authors, scientists, researchers, thinkers, music composers, painters and film-makers have played a significant role in the development of Bengali culture . The Bengal Renaissance of the 19th and early 20th centuries was brought about after the British introduced Western education and ideas. Among the various Indian cultures, the Bengalis were relatively quick to adapt to the British rule and actually used its principles (such as the judiciary and the legislature) in the subsequent political struggle for independence. The Bengal Renaissance contained the seeds of a nascent political Indian nationalism and was the precursor in many ways to modern Indian artistic and cultural expression. The Bengali poet and novelist, Rabindranath Tagore, became the first Nobel Laureate from Asia when he won the 1913 Nobel Prize in Literature. Other Bengali Nobel Laureates include Amartya Sen (1999 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences) and Muhammad Yunus (2006 Nobel Peace Pri ...

Swamy had originally returned to India on an invitation by Amartya Sen for a reader's chair on Chinese studies at Delhi School of Economics.
Modi deserted by Indian intellectuals: Now its Amitav Ghosh after Amartya Sen and URA.
After Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, yet another intellectual has come out strongly against Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. Acclaimed author and Padma Shri awardee Amitav Ghosh said that for him Modi remains someone culpable for the Gujarat riots of 2002.
I always astonished by Amartya Sen's writing; one of my favorite Noble laureate
I know this is naive, but this week—reading everyone from UR Ananthamurthy to Amitav Ghosh to Amartya Sen decry Modi— depressed me madly..

Nitish Kumar complained in Aap Ki Adalat about a SM campaign against him & Amartya Sen-has the CM forgotten that its a democratic right?
Most of the people have been so complicated that it is going to be very difficult to say anything to anyone. there are some persons who say that who have no work, they give lecture with free. May it be truth? Then, Rabindranath Tagore, Amartya Sen, Najrul Islam, Satyajit ray and many more have no work actually and that is why they say a lot of lectures. Some persons say that the persons who are depressed say others depressed. It means all the psychiatrists are depressed. May it be truth?
The IPCC [the Global Warmist racketeers], Obama, and Amartya Sen are some of the few whose Nobel Prize should be withdrawn. The rest of the world SHOULD AND MUST institute an alternative Nobel [which has become completely ignoble], GLOBAL PEOPLE'S PRIZE. And keep the likes of Vandana and Arundhati out of it.
Dear Amitav Ghosh and Amartya Sen, Do you know which seat Modi is fighting election from? are you registered to vote from that area? and by chance if you are, will you vote for the person standing against him? will you vote for him even if he turns out to be Navaz Sharif? What if it is Gabbar Singh? How about Dawood Ibrahim?
Amartya Sen at 'lifted everyone up' as Josh Cohen put it. Generously inspiring. I'm still high from his warm words and handshake
Amartya Sen broke the mold to achieve the Noble Prize. Are we also inspired enough to act as change agents??
Terrific post on inequality, and more broadly, the state of NZ's political/economic discourse:
TH Charge of the unenlightened brigade: Jagdish Bhagwati’s attacks on Amartya Sen are based on a series of mis...
Abdul Kalam’s grand dream of reviving the ancient Nalanda Unv collapsed when he resigned, saying he was being forced out by Amartya Sen.
The usefulness of wealth lies in the things that it allows us to do--the substantive freedoms it helps us to achieve---Amartya Sen
Scholars slam Jagdish Bhagwati for attack on Amartya Sen - The Times of India
think Amartya Sen should live up to the reputation of the author of the Argumentative Indian, i.e., argue more with Bhagwati.
IIT 2013 Global Conference is excited to announce Prof. Amartya Sen, Nobel Laureate and world-renowned economist, as a confirmed speaker.
the way amartya sen ranted anti Modi views the time is not far he has to write for tehelka type d grade shops
only other Indian Adam Smith Prize winner - Amartya Sen but NOT Bhagwati (there around same time).2/3
Great post from “You have a moral obligation to view your opponent's argument in the best possible light..."
nope, vanjara, CBI, sen etc, now don't tell me they are paid to do so.
For example, Harvard economist and Nobel Prize winner Amartya Sen observed that there has never been famine in a country wit…
Erm... Nothing specific, it's a body of research. I'll dig up some people. Start with Amartya Sen and Hernando de Soto
not only that but also defend MPS letter to US, (shameless) by getting Amartya Sen to talk about Modi.
 border=
.Rightly said Madhuji.Cong hired Amartya Sen to write the letter so that it takes at least 3 days for Modiji to understand it
The range and depth of Amartya Sen's mind is something else. Here he reviews a Tagore Anthology - Reason and Poetry
don't forget to ask them about Amartya Sen ;)
My latest, in the National Interest, on the Amartya Sen-Jagdish Bhagwati controversy:
What was the name of Economist who Spoke against Amartya Sen...When sen said he doesn't want Modi as PM??
Interesting. Amartya Sen on why India struggles with poverty.
No response from his highness, Modi ji as he find difficult to decode Amartya Sen's letter.
If u think Modi gives a *** to what Amartya sen writes, then u r Rahul Gandhi
.Tehelka hired Amartya Sen to write that letter so that it takes Modiji at least three days to understand what is written.
Why colonized souls like Amartya Sen are not coming up with models suggesting economic and social devastation caused by US threats on Syria?
