The effect of Globalization Published in the Business Journal - “The Minister”, MOP Vaishnav College for Women Rapid growth in world trade, foreign direct investment and cross-border financial flows is a sign of increased globalization of the Indian and World economy.

Within a large segment of the Indian Left, globalization is seen as a tool of imperialism and of the West which…

A new venture in India Published in the Business Journal - “The Minister”, MOP Vaishnav College for Women In his book Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith, wrote that "a true wealth of a nation is measured not by how much gold it possesses but by what it can produce".

Should teens be sex – EDUCATED?

Work
Published in Deccan Chronicle A decade ago, the word ‘sex’ was considered dirty, and the very mention of it was considered taboo. But today, the scenario is different. Sex stands brazenly in the spotlight, as naked as the many of the girls seen in the movies are youngsters. It seems that overnight sex has grown from a squeamish subject for youngsters to something that is being accepted in the society very easily. Gen - X today have abundant knowledge on this subject, thanks to friends, internet, movies etc, but whether they have the right ideas about sex, and are aware of the various concepts and phenomena associated with it, is an entirely different issue.
