  1. 1) The government could have taken many firms and immediate actions on NPA's could be:-
    – Providing strict guidelines to all PSB's to minimise there NPA's with most priority within in given time frame and strict action in case of failure such as bank mergers or privatization etc(But we all know the corporate and govt relation even if we are not aware of govt and citizen relations, bitter but truth).
    – Practical and feasible IBC and firm implementation(which is always a dream in India.)
    -Internal as well as external audits by creating a separate team for that, to at least get the exact figure. (i still think there is a lot of bad loan on its way to become NPA but hidden somewhere down the layers.)

    2) Recapitalization plan and its success:- Bank recapitalization is almost like cleaning a wet floor while the tap is still open.
    While learning from our mistakes is the most important lesson of life, seems like this theory is not in books or political ideology of our governments. we already have done this recapitalization and we know where we stand today. so before flushing out peoples money to the banks' govt should have to take proper measures and corrective actions. (which is almost impossible in a capitalistic work where only money speaks )

    3) SS
    SS Panzergrenadier Division "Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler" military unit of Hitler started from a personal security and bodyguard unit of Hitler.

    4)Reason for the collapse of Ottoman Empire:- Arab Revolt (Not sure)

    5)NDMA:- primary purpose is to coordinate response to natural or man-made disasters and for capacity-building
    National Disaster Response Fund(UNDP and central govt) provides funding for NDMA.

    6) EDB:- 2 cities I guess Delhi and Mumbai.
    Govt should need to focus on real implementation rather than focusing on EDB ratings only and should have to add at least each states capital city initially and then have to penetrate deeper if in case they really want to improve the investment in India.
    Aur Demon Jaesa shorsighted and totally irresponsile decision lene ke bad aur hasty GST implementation ke baad , saare small businesses ki kamar todne ke baad aur manufacturing and export ko barbaad karne ke baad agar govt EDB ki rating improve karti h toh isse bada vayang kya hoga aaj ki vayavasta pe.

    7)Machiavelli the Chanakya of the west, rather than Chanakya the Machiavelli of the east:-
    Firstly the time difference and simply the seniority or super seniority of Chanakya.
    Secondly, Chanakya's ideas or doctrines were much deeper or elaborated as compared to Machiavelli.

    8) Abet (Verb) – Uksaana encouraging someone but in a negative sense, Synonyms:- Encourage or aid
    1) Abetting someone to do a crime, is itself a crime.
    2) The government should have to do something immediately and will have to stop abetting the farmers to do suicides.

    9) Water currently is part of state list but after this judgment, it can be shifted to the concurrent list.
    These lists are created to maintain the cooperative federalism (Soul of our federal structure).
    Minimizing the disputes and providing separate as well as combined legislation to both centers as well as the state.

    3 things India should do:-
    1) firstly and most importantly groundwater replenishment.
    2) Secondly checking water pollution and moving beyond planning to actual implementation.
    3) Thirdly ( could be my personal view more than a general view as i am from Uttarakhand and you all know char dham project and all) taking care of our rivers the veins of our country and stop running foolishly behind GDP or false growth and development.

    10) Shale oil vs Crude oil(Not sure please confirm):- Shale oil is synthetic oil or not produced naturally as the crude oil.
    Shale oil is generated by processing the organic matter present in the shale rock. Processes like pyrolysis (heating in absence of oxygen), hydrogenation (addition of hydrogen to shale rock and reacting it) or thermal dissolution are used to extract oil from shale rock. The oil produced is synthetic and can be used for the same purposes as conventional crude oil.

    11) On Gender Bias issue with due respect I decide to disagree on the fact that govt is not responsible and it is not their duty, if that is the case can I say that my family is open minded they consider both gender equal so it's not our responsibility too.
    Government is responsible for social issues too and this is a social issue and i personally think that govt need to play the most active role on changing this narrative and its changing in modern and educated part of the society but in major parts of India the whole narrative is different and each and every govt and leader in all these 70 years is responsible for this situation and condition and we too are equally responsible too.

    12) On capitalism has destroyed communism and is destroying democracy is absolutely true in India's context especially on this Karnataka election day, when I going through the list 90% candidates are crorepatis and this itself tells the tale.

So before flushing out people’s money to the banks' govt. should have to take proper measures and corrective actions(which is almost impossible in a capitalistic work where only money speaks). 3) What was the ‘SS’?

The contribution to the SDRFs is to be shared between the Centre and the States in the ratio 75:25 for general category States and 90:10 for special category States. 6) Which cities of India are used by World Bank to calculate Ease of Doing Business(EDB)?:- 2 cities at present, Delhi and Mumbai but which may get increased to 10. Govt should need to focus on real implementation rather than focusing on EDB ratings only and should have to add at least each states capital city initially and then have to penetrate deeper if in case they really want to improve the investment in India. 7)’Machiavelli the Chanakya of the West, rather than Chanakya,Vishnuigupta or Kautilya the Machiavelli of the East’:- Firstly the time difference and simply the seniority or super seniority of Chanakya.

Shale oil is synthetic oil or not produced naturally as the crude oil. Shale oil is generated by processing the organic matter present in the shale rock. Processes like pyrolysis (heating in absence of oxygen), hydrogenation (addition of hydrogen to shale rock and reacting it) or thermal dissolution are used to extract oil from shale rock. The oil produced is synthetic and can be used for the same purposes as conventional crude oil. When Crude oil prises rises abnormally in the international market due to OPEC countries America can take advantage of this position to decrease the price of Shale oil & capture Market share.11) What is PCPNDT act ?

An economy that operates by voluntary exchange in a free market and is not planned or controlled by a central authority; a capitalistic economy is called ‘Market Capitalism’.’Market capitalism’ is virtual while ‘Revenue’ is real. Stock market explicitly accounts for ‘Market Capitalism’ while implicitly accounting for ‘Revenue’.
