Though pulsations may eventually ease, it is time to think of long-term cures
Pulses have been throbbing hard and loud in India for sometime now. And not only because of prices, but also the pace in which it accelerated to 30% annually last month, three times the rate of increase six months ago. Besides angry television anchors and electoral evocations, hoarding, raids and truck thefts have set hearts thumping too. The mounting anxiety keeps the government pounding as well, as it does whatever it takes to bring down dal prices. Palpitations are easing a bit although the price of the queen of all pulses, tur dal, refuses to go down but a few notches. Though pulsations may eventually ease, it is time to think of long-term cures.
