We Heartily Congratulate Shri Ajay Sancheti for been elected as Rajya Sabha member. He is the first member of parliament from Malkapur. Congratulations!!!
Dear Readers, Firstly, I heartily congratulate Shri Ajay Sancheti for been elected as a Rajya Sabha Member. Wishing him all the good luck for his further steps. Moving on, towards the impact of budget this year on Infrastructure Sector. Infrastructure is critical for the development of any country. It is focus on the various segments of infrastructure which is important for the sustainable growth. It is said that a One Rupee invested in the infrastructure sector creates 10 times opportunities. So focus on the infrastructure is of utmost importance. However the sector has been witnessing some sluggishness since past two years on account of various factors like higher interest rates, thigh liquidity situation. Even the Finance Minister in the speech stated clearly that lack of infrastructure is a major concern in India and there is grave need to remove infrastructure bottlenecks. This clearly indicates towards the attention and importance being provided to the infrastructure sector. We are also of the opinion that, while India continues to be one of the fastest growing economies, the pace of development is unlikely to continue unless it is supported by an equally robust development of its infrastructure. As far as the Union Budget for FY13 is concerned, there seem to be a lot of potential for Infrastructure. Concrete measures for the growth of infrastructure in India have been taken as part of budget by creating adequate funding mechanisms. Rather the during the twelfth plan period, investment in infrastructure will go up to Rs 50 lakh crore with half of the same expected from private sector. The most positive factor is, total investment in infrastructure has increased from 5.7 % of GDP in 2007 to around 8.0 % in FY11. In FY13 budget aims for an increased growth rate between 9-10 %.

Evils of liquor A professor of chemistry wanted to teach his 5th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey and two worms. “Now, class. Observe closely the worms,” said the professor putting a worm first into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be. The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail. “Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?” the professor asked. Shyam, who naturally sits in back, raised his hand and wisely, responded, “Drink whiskey and you won’t get worms.”
