Indian development cooperation today is comparable to the foreign aid budgets of smaller, high-income European countries with one large difference: the Indian development cooperation budget is growing at a higher rate.

हर बच्चे को टीकाकरण उपलब्ध कराने के लिए भारत सरकार के प्रयासों में तेज़ी
विशेष टीकाकरण सप्ताह के दौरान लांच किया गया टीकाकरण संचार अभियान  नई दिल्ली, 29 अप्रैलः भारत के हर बच्चे का तुरन्त टीकाकरण करने तथा आरआई कवरेज में सुधार लाने के प्रयासों को तेज़ करने के लिए, भारत सरकार ने विशेष टीकाकरण सप्ताहों (स्पेशल इम्मुनाईज़ेशन वीक्स) की शुरुआत की है। इस कार्यक्रम के तहत देश के उच्च जोखिम वाले क्षेत्रों में अप्रैल, जून, जुलाई एवं अगस्त महीनों के एक-एक सप्ताह में, यानि कुल चार सप्ताहों के लिए विशेष टीकाकरण सत्रों का आयोजन किया जाएगा।

हर साल टीकाकरण के माध्यम से पांच साल से कम उम्र के लगभग 4 लाख बच्चों की जान बचाई जाती है। परन्तु लगभग 75 लाख बच्चे टीकाकरण (वैक्सीनेशन) के इन फायदों से वंचित रह जाते हैं, और इनमें से अधिकांश बच्चे कमज़ोर एवं सीमान्त आबादी से होते हैं। टीकाकरण न किए जाने की वजह से, उनमें इन घातक, जानलेवा बीमारियों की सम्भावना कई गुना बढ़ जाती है। आज भी दुनिया भर में, हर पांचवा बच्चा टीकाकरण से वंचित रह जाता है।

State of Denial Rajiv Kumar The Chairman of the Prime Minister Economic Advisory Committee (PMEAC) Dr. C. Rangarajan, was quoted on 24th April as saying that the current (XII) Five Year Plan could still see an average GDP growth of 8%!. During the interview, given after the release of the latest Economic Review by the PMEAC, Dr. Rangarajanexpounded on a lowering of the incremental capital-output ratio (ICOR) resulting in higher growth in coming years. In simple terms, he expects higher growth by a de-bottlenecking of large projects that will bring down the ICOR.How one wishes it was as simple as this to get us back to a higher 8-9% growth trajectory.Similarly, when in July 2011, at a seminar organized by Suman Berry, then head of the IGC, I had pointed out tothe then Chief Economic Advisor, Kaushik Basu, that investment was beginning to slacken dangerously, he simply pooh-poohed the warning. We know what happened thereafter. …
