Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

When 2 is greater than 7 ?



That is the caption of a informatics block appearing in Times of India ( 02 June 2017 )


-----------------------------------------------------------

It provides following figures for economies of          India  /  China  /  USA

-----------------------------------------------------------

·         % growth in GDP in 2017 ( at constant prices ) :  7.2   /   6.6      /      2.3

---------------------------------------------------------
·         
% growth in GDP in 2017 ( at current prices )   :  8.8   /   5.1      /      4.6

-----------------------------------------------------------
·         
Addition to GDP in $ Billion ( current prices )     : 198   /   577      /     848

---------------------------------------------------------

·         Addition to per capita income in $                    :  127   /  367       /    2173




The report goes on to say :

·         To match the absolute GDP growth of CHINA, India’s GDP at current prices should have grown at………….  25.6 %
