The hysterectomy is modern, but the Poverty is primitive

r, cannot afford such losses. This is not a primitive ritual; it is a modern-day form of heartless exploitation of women for the material benefit of others. What is truly primitive about it is the Poverty that compels the sacrifice of a part of the woman’s body. As primitive is the lack of education: women have no inkling of the dangers of needless hysterectomy. There is also a simmering propaganda about the possibilities of cancer in the wom

NYAY: No bridge between two Indias -R Ramakumar

he decade of the 2000s, produced high levels of economic growth. However, two associated outcomes were strikingly visible.

The NYAY Scheme of the Congress -Prabhat Patnaik

rity towards the bottom quintile, not the institution of a universal economic right to decent living. I find targeted transfer schemes like NYAY repugnant compared to a regime of universal rights.
