Bringing them in helps the government to put in place future economic reform, such as direct cash transfers, to correct the prevailing subsidy regime. Once people are freed of the clutches of a tyrannical bureaucracy through cash transfers, they will demand more of politicians. In short financial inclusion can trigger a cycle of virtuous developments while also bringing in goodwill for the NDA government..
We describe experiments and simulations demonstrating the propulsion of a neutrally buoyant swimmer that consists of a pair of spheres attached by a spring, immersed in a vibrating fluid. The vibration of the fluid induces relative motion of the spheres which, for sufficiently large amplitudes, can lead to motion of the center of mass of the two spheres. We find that the swimming speed obtained from both experiment and simulation agree and collapse onto a single curve if plotted as a function of the streaming Reynolds number, suggesting that the propulsion is related to streaming flows.
As a part of the 100 Happy Days Challenge I promised to post pictures of some of the things that have made me happy over the last week. I should point out that these pictures aren crazy exciting by any means. They do however, capture a moment in which I felt honestly happy.
And while the extraordinary vibrancy of musical life in that town was most conspicuously and most famously demonstrated by the frequent parades that wound through the streets, these events constituted only one realm in which musicians developed and displayed their craft. For apart from the parades and the more prestigious concert hall genres, instrumentalists (male instrumentalists, at least) played whenever and wherever community events called for their services: on riverboats, at birthday parties, picnics, social clubs, weddings, funerals, in brothels, nightclubs, and stage shows.30 Repertoire ranged from rags and popular songs to marches, spirituals, and classical fare. And if their music wasn’t exactly jazz, one branch of the early jazz musicians’ immediate forebears frequently utilized a performance style that present day listeners, musicians, and scholars would consider to be, at the very least, jazz like.
What is more germane is that under the guise of aiming to screen for birth defects, amniocentesis is still carried out without any fear of penalty. At Amritsar’s New Bhandari Hospital, for example, amniocentesis is widely practiced and openly advertised. Kanan Bhandari, who is herself a gynecologist and married to the hospital’s proprietor, defends her clinic’s practices by distinguishing between amniocentesis and the “medical termination of pregnancy of fetuses older than 20 weeks.” However, the measure of the girl child in India can be taken in myriad other ways.
