  • INDIAN PARLIAMENT MONSOON SESSION (2021) RUCKUS TIME TO THINK ABOUT COURSE OF ACTION by: Prahalad Rao 480.00

    Loud noise and shouting are the weaknesses of the human being. Tearing of papers and throwing of objects not only demonstrate the frustration, also amount to insulting others, also self-insulting. Those who dispute this statement are advised to consult the Holy Scriptures of their Faith that enables self-assessment of one’s own behavioral attitude and pattern. Courteousness and soothing words should the first call. This is the Law of the Nature of which the human is one of the beings and not the only being.

  • ANYONE WHO CAN TELL WHERE DID COVID-19 COME FROM THAT KILLED MILLIONS HUMANS IN THE WORLD – IS SILENCE AN ANSWER? by: Prahalad Rao 370.00

    Time since the pandemic entered every country with the least resistance playing havoc in those countries, both the states and its citizens becoming helpless to deal with the oncoming assault spreading like fire, the humans becoming it’s main victims, the number rising hourly as the days passed with the mounting number of patients and deaths. This was the scenario emerging in almost all the countries in the world showing signs of anxieties and anxious moments, everyone faced the biggest challenge of mankind to prevent its further spreading for survival and sustenance. Because the origin of coronavirus (Covid-19) is being interpreted right now all over the world with different connotations such as natural origin, bats, US Military and India, that is what China said, arrived from other planets and, in all these dusted arguments, the world seemed self- misguiding on the need for tracing its origin.
    Fact remains that the coronavirus did originate and found to exist at someplace in the world that is what was the need of the hour to throw a wide net to catch it. Every country got itself busy in safeguarding and protecting its citizens through several tests, experiments, and applications as per the guidelines of WHO and according to their own discretions and decisions. This was the time when the the horror started becoming horrendous defying all efforts governments of the countries encaged were engaged in. Search on origin has been going one but no
    hand has reached to it. Humpty Dumpty {See. Wikipedia for meaning}. Based on research papers, articles, opinions of the great scientists in the world obtained from the Website, their Points Based Analysis and Indicative Assessment on the basis of such analysis, the author made his best efforts to reach to the origin of the coronavirus, leaving the rest to the world how to go about, having also regard to the research work also taking place along by the learned and highly acknowledged scientists and experts in the world.

  • INDIA’S STRESSED ASSETS CONUNDRUM – SUGGESTED WAY-OUT by: Prahalad Rao 700.00

    Dawn of Twenty-First Century sighted the Stressed Assets {NPAs}, These banks and financial institutions came under tremendous pressure for financing the projects in the various sectors that perforce became necessary with the Economic Reforms in 1991 that enabled the private participation in a wider sense in the economic development process followed by the Financial Sector Reforms 1991-1992 onwards that blurred the functional lines hitherto existed between the commercial banks and
    the DFIs.
    Because of rising Non-Performance Assets (NPAs) of the major private participants from the later part of the first decade of the new century, the banks and financial institutions were not able to maintain their level of profitability in their operations which was further constrained due to enforcement of Prudential Norms by the RBI. The NPAs reached peak sometime in 2006-07 that led to increasing uneasiness in the Financial Sector.
    This entailed the amendment of the Banking Regulations Act, 1949. Then came IBC which opened up a newer route to escape from honouring the NPAs resulting in the write off of large public money. This is going on; the catastrophic outcome of which is telling upon the economic slowdown. The Prudential Norms Circular of 12 February 2018 issued by the RBI was struck down by the Supreme Court. The PSBs having been working under invisible political interventions from the time they were nationalized way back in 1969 aided more in building up the NPAs. The PSBs having found themselves in a fixed situation due either because of policy or political considerations were unable to act according to the loan covenants for recovery of NPAs. IBC route had not been beneficial to the PSBs who ultimately had no option but to make provision for Bad Debts/Doubtful Debts and write them off in their books of accounts. This is the Work-in-Progress {WIP}

  • SECULAR, SOCIALIST & RELIGION IN INDIA – THE MISCONCEPTIONS by: Prahalad Rao 370.00

    Constituent Assembly Debates, which made the Constitution of India, are the
    original source to understanding how the Constitution was made. The
    debates are bold and blunt, conducted using soft expressions and language.
    Rather than reading the Constitution as it is, what we discovered over the
    last fifty years of its adoption is that it is read differently, suiting the persons
    of the political parties speaking as they selectively suppress the spirit of the Letters.
    Terms such as socialist” and “secular were later inserted in the Preamble
    through the 42nd Amendment in 1976 and that opened up Pandora’s box.
    Unfortunate derivation continued to progress, opening up opportunities to
    influence the meaning of socialism, secularism, and religion. Politicians
    didn’t even glance at the spirited debates, on how those very words were used
    to rench the consensus collectively among them. Inequality continued to
    increase year after year, which should not have been there after the insertion
    of those words. Politicians and religious leaders at that time considered it
    more appropriate to convert those words as more relevant terms like
    religion, caste and creed. There onwards, the country started experiencing a
    different taste of socialism, secularism, and religion. In the author’s view, all
    such conceptions were solely serving self-interests. This is where we stand
    today. The author has made a humble effort in this book to highlight the
    misconceptions of these terms as envisioned in the Constitution.
    People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and
    ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity,
    please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be an is a spiritual
    and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul.
    Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive
    metion.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli.

  • NDIA’S POLITICAL BLUNDERS BLEEDING ITS BORDERS by: Prahalad Rao 260.00

    This book strives to find out how the rulers of our country missed the opportunities in hand to resolve the boundaries of India with Pakistan and China. The author has used the words “missed opportunities” because opportunities to settle the borders were offered to the rulers of that time. But what happened instead was the wanton self-denial of those opportunities. Those errors of judgment and political mistakes cost the country heavily, both in terms of loss of lives and increasing monetary burden.


    What is waiting to come is difficult to predict. The author considers that the historical and legal documents of the past 200 years provide irrefutable grounds for India to reclaim the large tracts of land at the borders. The book urges the reader to think and wonder: how long will India wait for this settlement? How can we silence the borders any longer, when the noise has been growing louder for decades?
