Internship Program of Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance – 2016-17

May 25, 2016

The notice is here. Last date is 15th June 2016. A good opportunity to work at Ministry of Finance.

All these internships are highly welcome. Earlier there were no such things and required all kinds of contacts (called jugaad) to even get a glimpse, leave getting any such projects.

Though, I don’t understand why these internship programs from one ministry comes across multiple press releases. They should make it all consistent. A couple of months back there was one press release from DEA which the blog missed. Now DEA has declared the results.

The Finance Ministry could easily streamline this whole thing and make it free of memory. Just have one period to invite applications for all ministry departments and declare results together as well. Something like every Ist of April a press release could come inviting applications and results out by 15th May or so.  This will eventually get internalised and help many students who look forward to such opportunities during their summer break.

Anyways, just pass it on..

Things are falling apart in Venezuela as documented by scores of articles.

Here is a startling post by Tho Bishop who quotes Joseph Stiglitz:

Cricket should become more responsible towards waste and environment..

May 25, 2016

A good article by Tanya Aldred. How much should a person consume is not just limited to daily life but extending to other aspects as well like sports matches.

The whole idea behind anything in modern economy is buy, buy, buy and consume, consume, consume. If you get tired doing these two, start all over again. Cricket hasn’t escapes this curse.

The author looks at how cricket matches have changed with simple things available to everything available.


Payment Bank- Three down..

May 25, 2016

The eleven players that were licenced make a cricket team which was expected to do wonders playing the game of financial inclusion.

But things are not going well at all and we. After the first wicket fell in March (Cholamandalam) and now very quickly two wickets have fallen. After Sanghvi/Telenor/IDFC became the second player, Tech Mahindra becomes the third player to drop out of the match.

Again no real reason for dropping out. The third player was in news for forming its management team not very long ago.
