How the real Ayushman Bharat should be?

I have failed to identify the Ayushman Bharat beneficiaries. The Ayushman Bharat execution is equally flawed as beneficiary identification, if not more. The scheme seems to have been arrived at by a politician proclaiming that he needs something good for the masses to be used at the election rallies and subsequently designed by the government […]

Ayushman Bharat Execution: Nothing Adds Up

I have failed to identify the Ayushman Bharat beneficiaries. The government is surely proceeding nonetheless. Now, I wanted to understand what and how will the government benefit the non-existent beneficiaries.

My Learnings from Demonetisation

Does the name of Mir Jafar ring a bell to you? Or the name of Jaichand? I suppose it does.
