Paying The Penalty For Low Food Stock

There are many good reasons why should a government maintain a minimum food reserve in the country. First of all the government has to run several dozens of foodaided social safety net programmes under the public food distribution system and to do so government must have certain volume of food in the public granaries. Unless the reserve is at sufficient level it may constrain government’s capacity to cater to the needs of ultrapoor, who are generally the beneficiaries of the safety net programmes.

Diplomacy And Papacy: How Do The Twain Meet?

[The essay analyses the challenges that Pope Francis confronted during his recent trip in an effort to defuse the tensions created by the Rohingya crisis between Myanmar and Bangladesh and also to draw the attention of the world to this massive humanitarian crisis. He seemed unswayed by either praise or criticism, and he drew both. He was able to demonstrate that while, as Pope, he might not command any military divisions, as Stalin had disdainfully observed, he had the courage to attempt at more than what many other leaders who did.]

The year 2017 is not the year 1971. The middle-aged citizen of today is no more the youth of yesterday. The freedom we enjoy in these times is far removed from the tortuous struggle we waged for liberty in those times. And yet there is something called history that connects the dots and links the linear lines of matters generational. That is the reason why we remember 16 December 1971 in winter 2017.
