Finally, the Big Bang did happen. And what a date to pick! What timing, with the government announcement being made less than a week before Ganesh Chaturthi, the Hindu festival that marks the day Lord Ganesha bestows his presence on earth. Lord Ganesha is the “ remover of all obstacles” and all events and happenings begin by chanting his name. The benefactor obliged and the roadblocks began to be removed and dismantled.
So, what did the government of India actually do a little more than two weeks ago? To start, it made a few bold moves to address key issues relating to fiscal deficit and restarted the reform process. To me, this is just the beginning and a lot more will follow, contrary to popular belief.
