I sincerely wish Mr Jaitley will resist the temptation of being hailed as a hero. Here is my unsolicited advice Temper expectations: The economy has been on the mend since 2013-14 when the growth rate jumped from 51 per cent in the previous year to 69 per cent but there is still some distance to go The CSO has estimated that growth in 2014-15 will be 74 per cent Accept the estimate and don’t aim for a higher growth rate Given the current situation a growth rate of between 7 and 8 per cent will be satisfactory and non-inflationary Stick to fiscal consolidation: UPA II lost its way when it prolonged the policy of fiscal stimulus I requested Mr Vijay Kelkar to suggest a path of fiscal consolidation He did we adopted it and it has paid rich dividends Inflation has moderated the exchange rate is reasonably stable and the credit rating is intact If the Chief Economic Adviser or the Vice Chairman of NITI Aayog demurs invite Mr Kelkar for a one-week tutorial that will keep the two gentlemen occupied until Budget day The first numbers that analysts will look for is whether the government has achieved the targeted fiscal deficit of 41 per cent in the current year and has set a target of 36 per cent for 2015-16 Increase public sector investment not government expenditure: Public sector enterprises (PSEs) are woefully reluctant to invest In 2012 we told them “Use it or Lose it” We told them that their profits have to be invested failing which they should give the government more in the form of dividend The diktat worked In 2012-13 the capital expenditure of Central PSEs was Rs 193737 crore and in 2013-14 it was Rs 257641 crore Public sector investment stimulates demand for goods and services creates jobs and has a “drag” effect on private sector investment On the other hand government departments are happy to spend Departments will ask for more money to spend on buildings travel seminars outsourcing studies and forming monitoring committees They will propose “new and better” schemes and promise to name them after BJP icons Mr Jaitley should firmly reject such requests and give only a little more than what each department actually spent in 2014-15 Tax sops may be required but only for enhanced savings: Tax concessions for financial savings are a good idea Higher deduction under some heads of expenditure is a bad idea Ideally exemptions and deductions must go so that everyone above an income threshold pays tax Budget should pass equity test: On equity the government’s intentions are suspect and its capacity doubtful Scarce public goods and falling standards impose a huge burden on the poor There are many ways to promote equity so let’s see how the Finance Minister goes about it Budget should also pass the equality test: Rising inequality — of income and wealth — is the bane of development It is the prime cause of social strife crime and erosion of democratic values Only some Scandinavian countries have faced up squarely to this challenge Given the BJP’s core beliefs I can predict with regret that the Budget will fail the test of reducing inequality My best wishes to the Finance Minister For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsSex education has been a tricky subject especially in a country like India where even uttering the word sex is considered a taboo But despite the reality of a new young India there is a patent unwillingness to accept let alone discuss the fact or possibility that people actually have sex for pleasure not to procreate and sometimes even out of wedlock In today’s age of the Internet and information where accessing porn is as easy as accessing email or news reports on the Internet it wouldn’t be too much to expect the government to at least to be open to sex education in schools But Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan delivered a rude blow to these expectations with his comment that "So-called ‘sex education’ (should) be banned" After being criticised by opposition and activists he later backtracked a bit to say "Crudity and graphic representation of culturally objectionable symbols as manifested in the UPA’s so-called sex education programme cannot be called sex education Every education system must strive to have an ideal curriculum and to that extent my stand is valid Sex education that builds societies free of gender discrimination teenage pregnancy" Representational image AFP Anjali Gopalakrishan of the Naz Foundation declared herself shocked by the minister’s attitude during a panel discussion on CNN-IBN "Are we not going to talk about issues with young people With great difficulty we have some modicum of sex education in place and most schools don’t run them and here we have a doctor who is the health minister giving us lessons on morality" she said "We have to ensure that our young people don’t die of STDs because adults are not comfortable talking about sex" she added Psychologist at VIMHANS Jitendra Nagpalsaid that sex education and information needed to be considered a right of the youth "We need empowerment through information for adolescents Dialogue at the right time on adolescent education and an age appropriate curriculum keeping in mind the culture is needed It is not about tutoring them but a dialogue It is human rights for teenagers to know about the process of growing up good touch and bad touch If we hide it under the carpet it will be chaos" However he said "We need to depart from the nomenclature of sex education" Firstpost entertainment editor Deepanjana Pal wrote about the importance of a healthy discussion on sex especially given the reality of how many of India’s youth were introduced to it "Considering the highly sexualised popular entertainment all around us children don’t need to be introduced to the idea of sex Plus whether or not they’re dancing to "Sheila ki Jawaani" or crooning Honey Singh songs a lot of Indians are having sex as is obvious from our population statistics From traumatic instances like when children witness their mother being sexually abused to hearing or glimpsing adults having sex there are countless ways that the young are introduced to sex and sexuality Under these circumstances where sex is all around you but not talked about it’s more important than ever to make sure children get the right end of the sexual stick The scope of sex education goes far beyond talking about the mechanics of sex" Despite this however Lata Nair of the Parents and Teachers Association said that parents in the country were actually queasy about sex education "They are still in the 19th century They don’t mind watching television with the children but they don’t want to talkabout sex" But Gopalan points out that things arenot that grim "Parents are apprehensive But we have worked with parents and we discussed with them what we would be discussing with the children and they become positive" It is not only the parents in India that are averse to sex education There are others who bring the question of morality into the equation Author and activist Rahul Eashwar said "I believe both sex and ethics are both good words and need to be taught but in the subtext of life and health education Sex education taught without values will have a disastrous effect" "Millions of parents who don’t belong to the ‘liberal’ category have inhibitions Don’t sugar coat the words but use the right ones Relationship fidelity should be also be taugh IN UK and US people are going out of control Condoms cannot stop teen pregnancies culture can" he said Questioning Eashwar’s argument filmmaker Onir said "What is our culture We are also the land of Kama Sutra When one is talking of sex education such a large number of our children face sexual abuse allthe time Mostly abuse happens at home and no one talks about it By denying our children the knowledge of sex we are not acknowledging that so many children get married off without any information about theirbodies" Written by PREETI DAS | Ahmedabad | Updated:
