INDIA ANALYSER - Annual Review 2010

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

When we look back at 2010, beyond a few startling events, do we know what the main issues that affected India were? India Analyser - Annual Review is an effort to highlight the key issues that concerned the state and society in 2010. The ten topics highlighted in the review deal with matters that pre-eminently affect the Indian polity and the Indian people at large. 


The review is divided into two parts- Perspectives and Analysis. The entries under Perspectives are short (700-900 words) and addresses a topic from a particular perspective while the entries under Analysis are longer (1200-1500 words) and analyses a topic more comprehensively. The underlying theme behind most entries, especially those under the Analysis section, is that of identifying the various governance trends emerging in India.  


Perspectives include specific chapters on- 

  • The judgment on the Bhopal gas tragedy
  • The adoption of a new Rupee symbol
  • The judgment on the Ayodhya land dispute
  • The crisis in the Microfinance industry  
  • The revelations of the Radia tapes 


Analysis include specific chapters on-

  •  The announcement of the annual union Budget
  • The reinstitution of the National Advisory Council
  • The rise of Maoist violence
  • The enactment of the Nuclear Liability Bill
  • The rejection of Vedanta’s mining project in Niyamgiri


Most of the entries in India Analyser are based on my writings in various magazines and websites over the last year. These include two of my blog entries in Legally India- one on the Naxal issue and another on the Bhopal verdict. The entry on the Naxal issue subsequently won the most socially just post in Legally India’s blogging competition last year.


So after months of being anonymous and refraining from posting anything after the competition, I posted this entry as I truly believe that India Analyser would be interesting to the readers of Legally India. Hope all of you enjoy reading the review. I would greatly value any feedback on the same.
