    The light is slowly becoming visible at the end of the tunnel. There are encouraging signs – a combination of economic and political and policy measures – that the economy may shed the sluggishness of the past couple of years and start growing once again, creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and jobs for youth. The inflation rate is moderating.

     Global commodity prices are easing. And there’s the very real possibility of the Reserve bank of India cutting rates, thus providing the economy the much-needed growth impetus. There are positive signs as well. The weatherman has predicted a normal monsoon this year. This augurs well for the rural economy. A bumper harvest – or just a good one – will help bring food prices down, accentuating the downward pressure on inflation and can set off a virtuous cycle wherein greater rural demand kick starts industrial production, thus, bumping up investments, jobs and economic growth.
