Amol AgrawalThe Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on November 1, 2019, announced reorganisation of the supervision and regulation department into a “unified Department of Regulation”.In an earlier article (October 21, 2019), I had argued why and how the RBI needs to reorganise its finance function under one deputy governor and allocate all related responsibilities (regulation, supervision and stability) to this one position. It is not very often that you see the central bank pays attention to your article and acts on the same. I am obviously kidding and it is just nice to note that my thinking was on similar lines as that of the RBI.Close Until now, the central bank had six departments for supervision and regulation of three entities: banks, non-banks and cooperatives. The two broad roles of regulation and supervision were also divided across two deputy governors. related news RBI to come under direct scrutiny of Centre, new Parliament proposal suggests: Report RBI to … [Read more...] about Regulation and supervision: RBI hits the nail on the head
Varsha PillaiIrony is perhaps the best way to describe the country that is India. We are after all poised to be country that will reap the demographic dividend that is set to drive the economy towards the $1 trillion benchmark, we are also the country that recently planned the mission to the moon and we are also the country that today ranks a dubious 102 in the Global Hunger Index (GHI) table out of 117 nations, way behind our neighbours — Pakistan (94), Bangladesh (88) and Sri Lanka (66).Even among the BRICS members, India fares the worst, China is ranked 25. The report also states that only 9.6 per cent of children in India between the ages of six months to around two years are fed ‘minimum acceptable diet’ which includes a combination of minimum dietary frequency along with dietary diversity. The GHI, released by Welthungerhilfe and Concern Worldwide, is based on four key indicators, which broadly includes undernourishment, child wasting, child stunting and child … [Read more...] about Policy | Don’t waste the childhood of India’s children
The conservative columnist George Will once said football combines the two worst things about America: violence punctuated by committee meetings. As a designer who occasionally gets caught up in the fury of the game, I’d like to add graphic design to what’s wrong with football. advertisement advertisement With the help of Skycam I spend as much time enjoying the color, patterns and graphics that add to the spectacle of the sport, as I do enjoying a deftly-completed pass. Now that the Yankees have won the World Series and the season shifts from batting balls to banging heads, I’ve been musing about NFL helmet design. For inspiration (and some truly bizarre helmet design), I visited the Art of the at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in Today’s high-tech helmet with its wireless headset and polycarbonate visor has come a long way from the padded leather ones of yesterday.

Q: Dear Dan: The Snuggie is everywhere. WTF?– Shruggie advertisement advertisement Dear Shruggie, if you think you’re bewildered about the Snuggie, consider the Chinese people who make a living producing them. (“I make blanket-ponchos for Americans who are too lazy to put on a sweater.”) By the way, did you see the new Snuggie designs unveiled at Fashion Week? Zebra, leopard, tie-dye, camouflage, etc. (“I make blanket-ponchos for Americans who want to look like a zebra.”) There’s even a Snuggie Pub Crawl, which seems like the best idea of the bunch. Here’s a theory you didn’t ask for: Infomercials are great at presenting unexpected solutions to unarticulated needs. You’ve probably had a Snuggiesque experience–lying on the couch and reading a book on a cold day, and you wrap a blanket around you, but it gets frustrating because you can’t hold the book AND keep your shoulders bundled up at the same time. … [Read more...] about The Snuggie Is Everywhere.
