For the real ‘green shoots’ look at who’s getting hired

Recruiters say the drive to hire employees is often triggered not by actual investment or expansion but on the expectation of that happening - a bit like how the Sensex rises on anticipation of good things happening, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

Once more with feeling as Obama comes calling

Modi’s visit to the US — the official meetings as well as the exuberant unofficial events — has reignited US interest in India and many believe that could be the starting point for both countries to build on, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

Missing the point: Congress could do with a bit of orchestration

Congress leaders have called Modi’s Swachch Bharat movement 'a photo op'. Instead of carping about it, the Congress itself could do with a bit of orchestration, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

Our children could drive the Clean India movement

Changing the behaviour and attitudes of older Indians may not be easy. That is why PM Narendra Modi’s Clean India Movement should begin at the bottom, with our children. HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan writes.

Black money case: It's an economic problem, keep politics out of it

Fixing the economy: 6 bullets that Modi govt must bite

The PM's sound bites do send out the right signals to local and foreign investors but if Modi wants to spur investments, boost growth and create jobs, his government will have to bite some bullets, many of them not sugarcoated, writes Sanjoy Narayan.

It's power to bureaucrats in Narendra Modi govt

The real Gujarat Model that is being replicated by Modi is not about development but about his style of governance. You needn’t look much further than Raisina Hill to see why, writes Editor-In-Chief Sanjoy Narayan.

‘Make in India’ means real work, not just 'jugaad'

Indian business has largely chosen to jettison attempts to innovate in manufacturing or develop a culture for doing so in favour of adopting what is known locally as ‘jugaad’, a simple workaround that gets the job done, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

To tide over the energy crisis, look to the sun

Barely 12% of India’s power generating capacity is from renewable sources. With the adoption of modern technology for generation, storage and distribution, this can be greatly increased, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

Right on the money: Fundings a major factor in Maharashtra polls

The Congress-NCP alliance has been the main beneficiary of the funds that the state’s co-operatives, industries, traders and the realty business contribute to the political kitty, writes Sanjoy Narayan.

Use and reuse: the real zero effect economy

PM Modi has a knack for coining catchy slogans. But the one that struck a new chord was his call to entrepreneurs to adopt a ‘zero defect, zero effect’ mantra, writes HT editor-in-chief Sanjoy Narayan.

As BJP reinvents itself, Congress still remains the grand old party

While the Congress faces an existential problem over leadership, the BJP has scripted a change with a new chief who’s inducting a young members into his core team, writes Sanjoy Narayan.

In this year’s HT-MaRS Indian Youth Survey, conducted among 5,214 middle and upper middle class youth (equal numbers men and women; ages 18-25) in 15 top Indian cities, the conservatives outweigh the deviants – by a big margin. Sanjoy Narayan writes.
