Fit­ting Trib­ute to Sau­mi­tra

The Economic Times - - Breaking Ideas -

Apro­pos the Edit, ‘The OneHanded Econ­o­mist, Any­one?’ (Aug 11), it’s a fit­ting trib­ute to the late Sau­mi­tra Chaud­huri, who was among the most ver­sa­tile home-grown economists em­ployed by gov­ern­ment with a per­fect un­der­stand­ing of all do­mains and the de­ter­mi­na­tion to de­liver re­sults. As rightly pointed out, C Ran­gara­jan, Rakesh Mo­han, Mon­tek Singh Ah­luwalia and Pronab Sen, among oth­ers, are also bril­liant economists. In­dia has enough po­ten­tial to cre­ate tal­ented home-grown economists who can make sound poli­cies, un­der­stand and work within the gov­ern­ment and de­liver the best un­der any sit­u­a­tion.
