Trending on our minds: The real estate sector, under attack or under construction?
by Aneri Patel Saturday, November 12th, 2016
The move comes as a shock to the nation. The Narendra Modi government is making one bold move after another, this move being the least expected. In hindsight though, the government did take two years to lay down the foundation for the move, for instance, the Jan Dhan Yojna ensured bank accounts were opened across the country and the Income Disclosure Scheme gave every citizen a fair chance to come clean. Nevertheless, as a young Indian I too am perplexed to the core. 2016 started out with great hopes but the ending is somehow looking slightly blurred:
UK is not a part of the EU
Trump is the 45th President of the United States
Brad Pitt and Anjelina Jolie have parted ways
Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mystry are fighting
Cash is no more King
Slighly blurred might be an understatement, however, there is no denying that this is the year of Disruptions! A word we have come to love recently. And of course there is no denying that if anyone could have taken this bold step for India, it is Narendra Modi! At least we finally have someone we can truly call a leader. Yes demonitisation did not succeed when introduced in 1946 and again in 1978, however, there is a greater reason to believe that the third time could be a charm. Today, the economy is much larger compared to the past, there is a considerable amount of the higher denomination currency in circulation compared to the miniscule amount of Rs 1000, Rs 5000 and Rs 10,000 notes previously, and, finally, the mindset of people is now immensely progressive. CHANGE is another word trending on our minds!
