Jaipur (PTI): The tra-
ditional ‘Gulal Gota’ or
lac balls filled with nat-
ural dry colours are
again finding favour
with Holi revellers de-
spite the dominance of
cheap synthetic options.
The round-shaped Gulal
Gota are traditionally
manufactured in Jaipur
where a few Muslim
families have been en-
gaged in this work for
generations.
Made of lac, these
balls are filled with nat-
ural colours. Unlike wa-
ter balloons and water
guns, Gulal Gota does
not cause any harm. Ar-
tisans and manufactur-
ers say the demand for
Gulal Gota has seen a
rise of late. “Most of the
current generation en-
joys Holi with synthetic
Gulal, water balloons
and guns, but only a few
people know and use the
beautiful Gulal Gota on
Holi. However, now the
young generation is also
getting attracted to-
wards it,” Avaz Moham-
med, an artisan, said.
Due to the bulk or-
ders, artisans start
handcrafting Gulal Go-
tas around two months
before the Holi festival.
Gulal Gota is still the
favourite of royal fami-
lies and is a part of their
Holi celebrations.

Vikas Sharma
Jaipur: In order to
strengthen Chief Min-
ister Ashok Gehlot’s vi-
sion of a healthy Ra-
jasthan, the legal crack-
down on adulterants
has started strictly
.
Till now, the actions
under ‘Shudh Ke Liye

limited to the collec-
tion of samples, but in
the last 1 year, there
has been a record speed
in presenting the cases
of these actions in the
court. In last 5 years,
the maximum number
of challans have been
presented in the court
in 2022. After CM Ge-

and with the appoint-
ment of a dedicated ad-
ministrative head, the
actions have been also
intensified in the state,

Meena believes that un-
less strict legal action is
taken, it is difficult to

Every moment of Veer Savarkar’s
life was devoted to the motherland.
Many tortures of the British and
punishment of black water could not
deter his resolve to make the country
independent. Be it his struggle against
untouchability or his thoughts of
patriotism, Veer Savarkar will always be
the center of inspiration for the country.

SISODIA’S ARREST
AIMED AT REINING
KEJRIWAL AND
DERAILING AAP
n a big blow to the
Aam Aadmi Party
(AAP) and Delhi
Chief Minister
Arvind Kejriwal,
Deputy Chief Minister Manish
Sisodia has been arrested on al-
leged charges of corruption in
liquor policy. The arrest was
made by the CBI after several
hours of interrogation. In an
speech earlier, Sisodia asked Ke-
jriwal to keep fighting for the
people as Prime Minister Naren-
dra Modi is scared of only one
party which is AAP. Sisodia is
the second high-profile AAP
minister after Satyender Jain to
be arrested by the CBI.
Sisodia’s arrest will leave
Arvind Kejriwal in a spot as the
former has been his trusted lieu-
tenant. He is in charge of 18 de-
partments, a crucial fact when
the party’s Budget Session is due
to be tabled in March. The arrest
is clearly aimed to weaken the
AAP which defeated the BJP in
AssemblyandMCDelections.As
Sisodia is also alleged to be in-
volved in collection of political
intelligence about AAP’s rivals,
his road ahead is tough.
I
onia Gandhi’s
statement at the
Congress plenary
that “her innings
could conclude
with Bharat Jodo Yatra” in
Raipur on Saturday has set
off speculation about her re-
tirement from active politics.
The Congress party’s clarifi-
cation that what she meant
was her tenure as party pres-
ident was not of much help
in the context of the tenor of
her speech. Sonia said she
had the honour of taking
over as party president in
1998 and “over these 25 years”
the “support, goodwill and
understanding of each one
of you and all the Congress
party workers throughout
the country have given us
strength. Our victories in
2004 and 2009 along with the
able leadership of Manmo-
han Singhji gave me personal
satisfaction, but what grati-
fies me most is that my in-
nings could conclude with
Bharat Jodo Yatra”.
Kumari Selja, a senior
leader, said Sonia spoke in
the context of her tenure as
party president. Another
party member Alka Lamba
said she was able to speak
with Sonia on this, who told
her that “she has never re-
tired, nor she will do so”. The
party may have played down
any talk of Sonia retiring
from politics but the refer-
ence to her statement coin-
ciding with Bharat Jodo
Yatra suggests that she is not
giving up her faith in her son
Rahul Gandhi. One must also
not forget that she stepped
down as party president in
October 2022, when Mallikar-
jun Kharge was elected party
chief. Party may have down-
played the import of her
statement as that would have
again triggered pro and anti-
Rahul faction war within.

S
atural calamities are inevita-
ble, and at times they show-
case mother nature’s fury
side. From massive earth-
quakes that rocked Turkey
and Syria to the devastating
forest fires that ravaged
Chile and flash floods in the
Southern Hemisphere, Feb-
ruary has been a month of
deadly natural calamities.
During any calamities,
where we all return to our ba-
sics, i.e ‘humanity’ irrespec-
tive of class, creed, religion,
gender,socioeconomicquo,or
any other parameter of per-
petual social differences that
we all sadly follow, knowingly
or unknowingly
. While calam-
ities are destructive and tax-
ing, all they occasionally do to
us - is knock our conscience.
And at this juncture, a mili-
tary drill comes to the fore is
– HADR (Humanitarian As-
sistance  Disaster Relief)
It is when we have seen the
world to stand – secular in all
truthfulness. Each time
HADR support is extended
for any victim nation, it is
delivered through the Armed
Forces being functional on-
ground, reverberating to
their call of duty. Be it the
combat ready, Army – an ag-
ile Air Force, the silent and
cohesive Navy
, or any special-
ized task force like – NDRF.
All stand one, with a common
objective to their super vigi-
lant senses, i.e, to appease
humanity and save lives.
Recently, HADR was ex-
tended to the quake-hit na-
tions of Syria and Turkiye.
Union Ministry of Health
and Family Welfare, Govern-
ment of India, was instru-
mental in sending the prompt
HADR for both the victim na-
tions. India has aided the vic-
tim countries in the spirit of
its age-old tradition of –
“Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.”
India has provided life-
saving emergency medicines,
protective items, medical
equipment, critical care
drugs, etc, as part of India’s
HADR plan, calling it – Op-
eration Dost this time.
On 6th February 2023,
when two powerful earth-
quakes hit Syria and Turkey,
three truckloads of relief
materials were mobilized at
Hindon airbase consisting of
life-saving emergency medi-
cines and protective items
within 12 hours. Trucks
started reaching by 10:00 am
on 7th Feb, 2023, and handing
over of the relief items to the
Indian Air Force (IAF) began
by 04:00 pm. The last truck-
load reached by 09:30 pm, and
the flight departed to Syria
with emergency relief mate-
rial on the same day by 10:00
pm for the relief operation.
The consignment consist-
ed of 5,945-ton emergency
relief material, including 27
life-saving medicines, two
kinds of protective items,
and three categories of criti-
cal care equipment, valued at
approximately `2 crore. On
10th February 2023, addition-
al relief materials were ar-
ranged for Turkiye and Syr-
ia. The consignment for Syr-
ia consisted of 72 critical
care drugs, consumables, and
protective items of 7.3 tons,
valued at `1.4 crore. Relief
materials sent for Turkiye
included 14 types of medical
and critical care equipment
valued at `4 crore.
It is learned that the medi-
cal corps of our Indian Army
,
with their Field Hospital,
treated over 3,600 earthquake
victims in Hatya Province of
Turkiye. Furthermore, the
Indian disaster relief team,
comprising 99 personnel of
the Indian Army Field Hospi-
tal and National Disaster Re-
sponse Force (NDRF) re-
turned to India on February
20, 2023, after putting in a
stupendous effort to provide
medical relief to disaster vic-
tims in Hatya Province of
Turkey hit by the earth-
quake. The effort has been
applauded both at the Nation-
al and International levels.
The Indian Army Field Hos-
pital has treated 3604 casual-
ties, provided emergency
medical care, and performed
04 x significant surgeries, 63
x minor surgeries, 343 minor
procedures, including 87 x
POP applications for fixing
fractures.
TheIndianArmyFieldHos-
pital comprising of 99 person-
nel,includingvariousSpecial-
ist Medical Officers and Para-
medics, established their Hos-
pital at Iskenderun, Hatay
Province, Turkey on 08 Feb
2023, which included a fully
functional OT and Trauma
Care Centre. The Specialists
haveMedical,Surgical,Anaes-
thetists, Orthopaedicians,
Maxillofacial surgeons, and
CommunityMedicinespecial-
ists to assist earthquake vic-
tims. Besides this, a Lady
Medical Officer has also been
sent to render medical care to
female patients/casualties.
In addition, the Indian
Army Field Hospital provid-
ed Dental treatment to 242
patients, carrying out 283 pre-
cautionary X-rays on trauma
victims. 14 x patients were
admitted, and 97 x patients
were detained and treated.
1159 Lab investigations were
carried out on the cases re-
ported for treatment. Indian
Army has replenished the
Field Hospital through Medi-
cal and Surgical bricks and
Orthopaedic equipment.
On the administrative
front, the team had also set
up a reception desk for re-
ceiving donations and dis-
tributing them to the needy.
Later, Prime Minister Naren-
dra Modi interacted with and
lauded the National Disaster
Response Force members, In-
dian Army, and Indian Air
Force, who were deployed on
Operation Dost on Monday,
February 20, 2023.
NDRF and the army final-
izeditsteam,andofficialscon-
cerned at the ministry of ex-
ternal affairs worked till late
on February 6, the day earth-
quakes hit Turkey and Syria,
to issue a passport to every-
one. Most of the team mem-
bers needed passports. The
rescuers had to be flown im-
mediately
, so MEA opened
their offices and printed the
passports. Separately

helpful the app has
proved in providing

“This is a big achieve-
ment. This is a living
example of how the peo-

ple,” he said.

also highlighted the
cleanliness exercises
adopted by people in

Ghulam Nabi Azad con-
demned the killing of a
KashmiriPanditinJam-
mu and Kashmir’s Pul-
wama district on Sun-
day
, saying it was a mat-
ter of grave concern.
“Any killing, especial-
ly a targeted killing, is a
matter of grave concern
and condemnable. We
condemn it,” he said.
The former JK CM
said every targeted kill-
ing is condemnable, be
that of a Kashmiri Pan-
dit or a Muslim or a
Sikh and whether the
victim is from Jammu
or Kashmir.
However, he said the
most unfortunate part
is that while many peo-
ple were arrested in
connection with such
incidents over the last
30 years, “not one killer
has been arrested for
these targeted killings
in the last two years”.
Sanjay Sharma (40),

ing never to compro-
mise with the politics
of BJP-RSS,andmen-
tioning its openness

challenges facing the
country: growing
economic inequality,
intensifying social
polarisation and
deepening political
dictatorship.”
The same was re-

gered a massive sell-off in

Adani’s sprawling con-
glomerate, which spans

edible oil and commodities,
energy, cement and data
centres, is under attack by
US short-seller Hinden-

Since the Hindenburg
report, the group’s 10 list-
ed companies have lost Rs
12.06 lakh crore, nearly
equivalent to the market
capitalisation of Tata
Consultancy Services
(TCS) - India’s second most
valuable company.
Group’s founder chair-
man Gautam Adani, 60, a
first-generation entrepre-
neur, has lost $80.6 billion
in wealth, which was pri-
marily based on valuation
of his holding in group
companies.
He was worth $120 bil-
lion before Hindenburg re-
port but now is ranked
No.30 on the world billion-
aire index with about $40
billion networth.
Rival Mukesh Ambani,
whom he had overtaken
last year to become Asia’s

‘DIGITAL ECONOMY CAN
CONTRIBUTE 25% GDP’
New Delhi (PTI): Noted
banker KV Kamath, who
now chairs the National
Bank for Financing Infra-
structure and Development
(NaBFID), expects the digi-
tal sector to contribute a
quarter of the incremental
GDP by the time the econo-
my becomes a $ 7 trillion
giant by FY29. Currently,
the contribution of the
digital economy is a low
4%, whereas it is as much
as 40% in China.
The government and
planners see the economy
becoming the third largest
in the world by FY29, over-
taking Japan, with a GDP
of $7 trillion from the pre-
sent $3.3 trillion.
The digital economy --
the digital infrastructure,
e-commerce and other digi-
tal payments and services
segments--can be the coun-
try’s biggest growth-driver
and can contribute as
much as 25% of the incre-
mental GDP by the time
India becomes a $7-trillion
economy by FY29. Current-
ly, the share is a low 4%,
Kamath said.
“As much as 40% of the
Chinese economy come
from the digital sector to-
day, and I don’t see any rea-
son why we can’t achieve
this,” the former ICICI
Bank chairman quipped.
Kamath said, the NaB-

‘MAY FALL SHORT OF TARGET’
India’s economic growth fragile
New Delhi (PTI): India’s
economic growth appears
to be ‘very fragile’ and it
may fall short of what the
country needs to meet the
aspirations of its growing
workforce, RBI Monetary
Policy Committee (MPC)
member Jayanth R Varma
said on Sunday
.
In India, Varma said he
expects inflation to remain
high in 2022-23 but come
down significantly in 2023-
24. “However, growth ap-
pears to be very fragile,
and monetary tightening
is compressing demand,”
he said.
Explaining further, he
said rising EMI payments
increases the pressure on
household budgets and
dampens spending, and ex-
ports are struggling in the
face of global factors.
While noting that high
interest rates make private
capital investment more
difficult, Varma said the
government is in fiscal con-
solidation mode, thus re-
ducing the support to the
economy from this source.
“Because of all these fac-
tors, I fear that growth may
fall short of what we need
to meet the aspirations of
our growing workforce
given our demographic
context and income level,”
he said.
The Reserve Bank of In-
dia (RBI) has projected In-
dia’s economic growth at
6.4% for 2023- 24. Gross Do-
mestic Product (GDP)
growth is estimated at 7%
in 2022-23, according to the
first advance estimate of
the NSO.
The Economic Survey
2022-23 projected a baseline
GDP growth of 6.5% in real
terms for the next fiscal.
Varma, currently a pro-
fessor at the Indian Insti-
tute of Management,
Ahmedabad said he sees
global inflationary pres-
sures dissipating in the
months ahead as the sup-
ply shocks from the pan-
demic and from the
Ukraine war gradually re-
solve themselves.
“The world is learning to
live with the war,” he said,
adding that at the same
time monetary tightening
is putting growth at risk
across the world.

Kota: After the massive
public support for Ra-
hul Gandhi’s Bharat
Jodo Yatra in Kota,
UDH Minister Shanti
Dhariwal, who is in
command of Congress’s
Haath se Haath Jodo
campaign, has spread
enthusiasm among the
Congress workers by
undertaking a record-
breaking padyatra.
Dhariwal, along with
his son and PCC mem-
ber Amit Dhariwal,
other Congress leaders
and workers went door-
to-door in 6 wards in 7
days during his stay in
Kota from February 20
to February 26. He in-
teracted with the people
of the area and high-
lighted the achieve-
ments of the Congress
government.

the development works
from the people of the
area.
He also discussed
with Valmiki Samaj
about the recruitment
of sweepers being car-
ried out by the govern-
ment. He said that the
government is con-
stantly trying to pro-
vide relief to every sec-
tion of the society with
sensitivity. On the
other hand, the minis-
ter stated that people
have got relief from the
fraud of private power
company KEDL.
“I had promised the
people to get rid of the
company following
complaints of over-bill-
ing. With the state gov-
ernment providing 100
units free, the private
power company has
now become irrele-
vant,” he said.

Raghu Sharma said
that the leaders have
kept their views here
and new message will
go from this session.
“Rahul Gandhi ji said
we don’t
have to be
afraid, we
have to
fight. Our
party has
history.
We had driven the Brit-
ish out of the country.
Congress will never
have trouble if the party
is united. Even if the
biggest force comes,”
he said. Regarding Ge-
hlot and Pilot camps,
Sharma said that both
have to think for unity.
“Our existence is only
because of Congress.
The High Command
must intervene in the
matter. Only when we
are united, can we
defeat the BJP in elec-
tions,” he said.
One of the greatest acts of
persona responsibility is
focused planning- both
short-term and long-term.

Feel the
blossom
Floral skirts are flirty, fabulous
and enjoyable. City First brings to
you the significance of floral
skirts in the fashion world
retty floral
skirts lead the
list of women’s
skirt trends due
to their femi-
nine allure. Flo-
ral skirt ensem-
bles can appear beauti-
ful if they are worn with
the correct approach.
These dresses are eye
candy thanks to the love-
ly floral pattern. While
the wide selection ena-
bles every lady to select
the ideal one for her
unique style. Floral
skirts give an otherwise
plain closet a celebrato-
ry vibe. They could be
classified as a summer
or spring essential. But
the truth is that if you
know the dos and don’ts
of wearing them with
other clothes, you can
wear them all year
round. Floral dresses
come in a variety
, just
like actual flowers. They
can be long skirts, mini
pencil skirts, or short,
stylish tennis skirts.
They could also be bub-
bleskirts,circularskirts
with flares, or high-
waisted skirts with
pleats. In conclusion,
you can order floral
dresses in any length
and shape. The sort of
floral skirt you choose
will determine how you
should arrange it. These
gorgeous skirts can have
a large-scale pattern
with vibrant, evenly
placed flowers. Alter-
nately
, they could be mi-
nuscule, grouped mini
florals, which might be a
good choice for under-
stated designs. Darker
designs appear more
subtle, while vibrant
flower prints are expres-
sive and upbeat. The
best method to dress a
floral skirt is to give
close attention to the flo-
ral pattern. The flowery
design ought to be the
focal point of your en-
semble. To do credit to
this fashionable item of
clothing, it is essential to
understand what top to
pair with a flowery skirt
and what layering choic-
es can go with it. The
measurements and hues
of the staples you use to
complement it must be
accurate. This will help
you put together an en-
semble that is both cohe-
sive and attractive to the
eye. At times, striking
contrasts in the form
of colours and
patterns also
work for
women who
love an ec-
c e n t r i c
style. Make
sure that the
scale of both
prints is the
same to create
a balanced
look.

He was taken for questioning on Sunday over the alleged liquor scam which took place under the Delhi Excise Policy. This comes after Sisodia, during a show of strength organised by AAP asked his party members to take care of his family if he is jailed. AAP leaders said that the BJP is 'scared' of AAP which is why they are using Central agen- cies like CBI and ED to attack 'innocent' people like Sisodia.

Jaipur (PTI): The tra- ditional ‘Gulal Gota’ or lac balls filled with nat- ural dry colours are again finding favour with Holi revellers de- spite the dominance of cheap synthetic options. The round-shaped Gulal Gota are traditionally manufactured in Jaipur where a few Muslim families have been en- gaged in this work for generations. Made of lac, these balls are filled with nat- ural colours. Unlike wa- ter balloons and water guns, Gulal Gota does not cause any harm. Ar- tisans and manufactur- ers say the demand for Gulal Gota has seen a rise of late. “Most of the current generation en- joys Holi with synthetic Gulal, water balloons and guns, but only a few people know and use the beautiful Gulal Gota on Holi. However, now the young generation is also getting attracted to- wards it,” Avaz Moham- med, an artisan, said. Due to the bulk or- ders, artisans start handcrafting Gulal Go- tas around two months before the Holi festival. Gulal Gota is still the favourite of royal fami- lies and is a part of their Holi celebrations.

TOP TWEETS SISODIA’S ARREST AIMED AT REINING KEJRIWAL AND DERAILING AAP n a big blow to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has been arrested on al- leged charges of corruption in liquor policy. The arrest was made by the CBI after several hours of interrogation. In an speech earlier, Sisodia asked Ke- jriwal to keep fighting for the people as Prime Minister Naren- dra Modi is scared of only one party which is AAP. Sisodia is the second high-profile AAP minister after Satyender Jain to be arrested by the CBI. Sisodia’s arrest will leave Arvind Kejriwal in a spot as the former has been his trusted lieu- tenant. He is in charge of 18 de- partments, a crucial fact when the party’s Budget Session is due to be tabled in March. The arrest is clearly aimed to weaken the AAP which defeated the BJP in AssemblyandMCDelections.As Sisodia is also alleged to be in- volved in collection of political intelligence about AAP’s rivals, his road ahead is tough. I onia Gandhi’s statement at the Congress plenary that “her innings could conclude with Bharat Jodo Yatra” in Raipur on Saturday has set off speculation about her re- tirement from active politics. The Congress party’s clarifi- cation that what she meant was her tenure as party pres- ident was not of much help in the context of the tenor of her speech. Sonia said she had the honour of taking over as party president in 1998 and “over these 25 years” the “support, goodwill and understanding of each one of you and all the Congress party workers throughout the country have given us strength. Our victories in 2004 and 2009 along with the able leadership of Manmo- han Singhji gave me personal satisfaction, but what grati- fies me most is that my in- nings could conclude with Bharat Jodo Yatra”. Kumari Selja, a senior leader, said Sonia spoke in the context of her tenure as party president. Another party member Alka Lamba said she was able to speak with Sonia on this, who told her that “she has never re- tired, nor she will do so”. The party may have played down any talk of Sonia retiring from politics but the refer- ence to her statement coin- ciding with Bharat Jodo Yatra suggests that she is not giving up her faith in her son Rahul Gandhi. One must also not forget that she stepped down as party president in October 2022, when Mallikar- jun Kharge was elected party chief. Party may have down- played the import of her statement as that would have again triggered pro and anti- Rahul faction war within. IS SONIA RETIRING FROM POLITICS? Sonia Gandhi’s statement at the Congress plenary that “her innings could conclude with Bharat Jodo Yatra” in Raipur on Saturday has set off speculation about her retirement from active politics S atural calamities are inevita- ble, and at times they show- case mother nature’s fury side. From massive earth- quakes that rocked Turkey and Syria to the devastating forest fires that ravaged Chile and flash floods in the Southern Hemisphere, Feb- ruary has been a month of deadly natural calamities. During any calamities, where we all return to our ba- sics, i.e ‘humanity’ irrespec- tive of class, creed, religion, gender,socioeconomicquo,or any other parameter of per- petual social differences that we all sadly follow, knowingly or unknowingly . While calam- ities are destructive and tax- ing, all they occasionally do to us - is knock our conscience. And at this juncture, a mili- tary drill comes to the fore is – HADR (Humanitarian As- sistance Disaster Relief) It is when we have seen the world to stand – secular in all truthfulness. Each time HADR support is extended for any victim nation, it is delivered through the Armed Forces being functional on- ground, reverberating to their call of duty. Be it the combat ready, Army – an ag- ile Air Force, the silent and cohesive Navy , or any special- ized task force like – NDRF. All stand one, with a common objective to their super vigi- lant senses, i.e, to appease humanity and save lives. Recently, HADR was ex- tended to the quake-hit na- tions of Syria and Turkiye. Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govern- ment of India, was instru- mental in sending the prompt HADR for both the victim na- tions. India has aided the vic- tim countries in the spirit of its age-old tradition of – “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.” India has provided life- saving emergency medicines, protective items, medical equipment, critical care drugs, etc, as part of India’s HADR plan, calling it – Op- eration Dost this time. On 6th February 2023, when two powerful earth- quakes hit Syria and Turkey, three truckloads of relief materials were mobilized at Hindon airbase consisting of life-saving emergency medi- cines and protective items within 12 hours. Trucks started reaching by 10:00 am on 7th Feb, 2023, and handing over of the relief items to the Indian Air Force (IAF) began by 04:00 pm. The last truck- load reached by 09:30 pm, and the flight departed to Syria with emergency relief mate- rial on the same day by 10:00 pm for the relief operation. The consignment consist- ed of 5,945-ton emergency relief material, including 27 life-saving medicines, two kinds of protective items, and three categories of criti- cal care equipment, valued at approximately `2 crore. On 10th February 2023, addition- al relief materials were ar- ranged for Turkiye and Syr- ia. The consignment for Syr- ia consisted of 72 critical care drugs, consumables, and protective items of 7.3 tons, valued at `1.4 crore.

Adani’s sprawling con- glomerate, which spans from sea ports to airports, edible oil and commodities, energy, cement and data centres, is under attack by US short-seller Hinden- burg Research. Since the Hindenburg report, the group’s 10 list- ed companies have lost Rs 12.06 lakh crore, nearly equivalent to the market capitalisation of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) - India’s second most valuable company. Group’s founder chair- man Gautam Adani, 60, a first-generation entrepre- neur, has lost $80.6 billion in wealth, which was pri- marily based on valuation of his holding in group companies. He was worth $120 bil- lion before Hindenburg re- port but now is ranked No.30 on the world billion- aire index with about $40 billion networth. Rival Mukesh Ambani, whom he had overtaken last year to become Asia’s richest is now ranked No.10 with $81.7 billion wealth. INDIA’S ENRON MOMENT?

Current- ly, the share is a low 4%, Kamath said. “As much as 40% of the Chinese economy come from the digital sector to- day, and I don’t see any rea- son why we can’t achieve this,” the former ICICI Bank chairman quipped.

In India, Varma said he expects inflation to remain high in 2022-23 but come down significantly in 2023- 24. “However, growth ap- pears to be very fragile, and monetary tightening is compressing demand,” he said. Explaining further, he said rising EMI payments increases the pressure on household budgets and dampens spending, and ex- ports are struggling in the face of global factors. While noting that high interest rates make private capital investment more difficult, Varma said the government is in fiscal con- solidation mode, thus re- ducing the support to the economy from this source. “Because of all these fac- tors, I fear that growth may fall short of what we need to meet the aspirations of our growing workforce given our demographic context and income level,” he said. The Reserve Bank of In- dia (RBI) has projected In- dia’s economic growth at 6.4% for 2023- 24. Gross Do- mestic Product (GDP) growth is estimated at 7% in 2022-23, according to the first advance estimate of the NSO. The Economic Survey 2022-23 projected a baseline GDP growth of 6.5% in real terms for the next fiscal. Varma, currently a pro- fessor at the Indian Insti- tute of Management, Ahmedabad said he sees global inflationary pres- sures dissipating in the months ahead as the sup- ply shocks from the pan- demic and from the Ukraine war gradually re- solve themselves. “The world is learning to live with the war,” he said, adding that at the same time monetary tightening is putting growth at risk across the world.
