The weak pulse of the Indian economy4 min read 04 Dec 2013, 07:16 PM IST
In a capital-starved economy such as India, incremental credit should have a strong growth impulse
Nadi Pariksha or pulse-check is an important method of diagnosis in the ancient science of Ayurveda. Unlike a modern medical test or a scan which focuses on finding out a specific medical issue, a nadi parikshak looks for overall imbalances in the human body. A seemingly healthy person, who would not normally undergo any tests or scans, may actually be nursing several imbalances that can be picked up in a nadi pariksha. This could be the first step towards preventive medication and hence sustainable good health. While the Indian economy seems to be enjoying a reprieve from the stress test period of last few months, a periodic pulse-check for imbalances is always important.
