Journalist turned Generalist
Tushar Dhara is a former general and financial journalist who escaped from the mainstream press to live and work in rural Rajasthan with the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan on issues of access to information and minimum wages and teach at the School for Democracy.
On 29 January, Dr Raghuram Rajan delivered the C D Deshmukh lecture on financial reforms, where he mentioned drought twice in the context of falling inflation. In both instances he used the words "two successive" before drought. It was a barely noticed but significant nugget of information that has ramifications beyond the rarefied circle of policy-making and finance.
