Meena Auntie and the Winds of Change

While I am busy, some of my 'friends' have been restless, and hard-at-it writing. This time it's my Indian blog colleague, Vivek who gets across the way India is changing extremely effectively in his Meena Auntie piece for the Business Standard:

Meena auntie died a few months ago after a prolonged battle with throat cancer and asthma. She had a tough life and the end wasn't much better. I have thought of her quite a bit in the last few months. Every time I think of her, I think about the fiscal deficit. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and gang (various economists affiliated to colleges, think tanks, financial markets) have been pressuring the Indian government to reduce the deficit.
