1 - 61,000 Indian millionaires shifted overseas in last 14 years
India has seen the second-biggest outflow of high net worth individuals in last 14 years, with as many as 61,000 millionaires shifting base to abroad due to reasons like tax, security and child education, says a report.

2 - Farmers’ interests are only one part of designing a workable land acquisition law
- The high-decibel debate on land acquisition, playing out in Parliament and media since the opening of the budget session, is asking the wrong question.

- Kolkata was the capital of British India from 1858-1911. When we got Independence, it was still India’s premier city on many counts. West Bengal was also the leader in many industries and was probably the cultural capital of India.
West Bengal had everything going to become India’s most developed State while Kolkata had a head-start to one day become a world class city, ahead of New Delhi and Mumbai. However while things moved slowly for the first 20 years, after that things totally went downhill with each and every party that ruled it contributing to its downfall.
- The most underplayed story of 2014 has to be the National Herald scam where Congress head honchos Sonia and Rahul Gandhi have been implicated. The mainstream media continues to be afraid of Sonia as was shown by the coverage.
First things first: Now it is no longer a case of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy's allegations against the dynasty. It is a serious court case and both Sonia and Rahul are the accused.
