Mission 2022 gains momentum with ‘Destination India’ slogan

By IndianMandarins 13 Feb 2020

After its promise of doubling farmers’ income by 2022, the NaMo Govt has interestingly coined another title ‘Destination India’; an initiative targeting admission of over 2 lakh foreign students by 2022 in courses like Yoga and Ayurveda. By projecting India as a hub of education and culture, the country might attract foreign exchange. But this will hardly help it becoming a $5 trillion economy looking at other parametres. However, short-term courses in Yoga, Buddhism and Ayurveda might attract foreign students even from countries like the US and UK. Ministries and departments like HRD, MHA, Health, Aayush, MEA and ICCR are getting convergent to evolve the mechanism to ensure PM’s mission 2022.

Rajkot Bonanza: Media houses get something for doing nothing?

By IndianMandarins 03 Feb 2020

In a very intriguing manner cheques of Rs 50 thousand each have been issued to eight media houses by Rajkot collector without publishing any advertisement causing an embarrassment to the state government. However the district administration brush the matter aside by saying consider the money as affection for good Republic Day coverage.

Apparently the administration did not check if the advertisement was published or not but issued the cheque but when media houses approached the administration for the same, the answer of the district administration was astonishing. However, the commissioner is taking about inquiring about the matter as he was unaware of the development. Another officer was of the view that if any media house has any issue raise any previous bill against it, the administration would adjust.

A section of bureaucracy is calling it a blatant example of bribery to the media houses as the collector is sticking the ground saying that everything has been done following rules and regulations. The most unfortunate part of it is that everyone is speaking different voices.
