India’s poverty reaches highest level in decades

India (MNN) – India’s poverty is grabbing headlines. A New York Times report says India’s current Prime Minister Narendra Modi was accused of suppressing a report that potentially showed India’s poverty rate reaching its highest level in decades during 2017. Another report by the Hindu Business Line states that 30.3 percent of extremely poor children live in India, making India only second to sub-Sahara Africa regarding extreme child poverty. India’s struggle with poverty has not escaped ...

Train18: A success or a failure? Some perspective

So India’s Train18 (Vande Bharat Express) made its maiden journey – and like any new product, it did face teething issues. The train broke down 200 kms from Delhi and though the issue was fixed fast, there are questions being raised on India’s capability to build world class technology products. Fair question, esp when the country is not really known (anymore) for building indigenous products (leaving what ISRO does). There are 2 ways to look at this: Call it a failure – which is a fav game am...

A short trip to India showed me just how badly Apple is screwing up in the world's biggest democracy

Apple has failed to crack the Indian smartphone market, languishing behind Chinese brands with less than a 2% share of the market. During a family visit to India, I noticed Apple doesn't have much retail or advertising presence and that it mostly advertises the "cheaper" iPhone XR. The iPhone XR is still too expensive for most Indians, and iPhones overall cost more to buy in India than in other countries. CEO Tim Cook seems to be trying to replicate Apple's Chinese strategy in India, which has...

India's e-waste recycling "markets" are toxic nightmares filled with child laborers

Millions of tons of e-waste -- much of it from rich countries like Australia -- are recycled in India, in "markets" with terrible, dangerous working conditions and equally awful environmental controls. India passed comprehensive e-waste recycling regulations in 2016, but they are not well enforced. Researchers from the UNSW report from Seelampur and Mandoli, two slums outside of Delhi, where the kabadiwalas (also called raddiwalas) work to dismantle truckloads of e-waste that are dumped the...

How selfies help Indian women from Delhi’s outskirts claim their right to the city

Taking selfies and posting them on social media is often derided as a narcissistic, self-absorbed, and attention-seeking practice. Filters come in for particular disdain due to the role they play in reinforcing unattainable beauty standards, by making faces lighter, slimmer, and wider-eyed than is natural. Yet feminist, minority, and queer activists have argued selfies can be a way for people to represent and take pride in their identity, sexuality, and gender orientation. And recently, my own e...
