Is the stock market overvalued? (Column: Active Voice)
Last week, Uday Kotak of Kotak Mahindra Bank had a warning about the stock markets entering a possible bubble. According to him, Indians are investing massive amounts of savings into "a few hundred stocks" of firms whose governance standards are questionable. The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) Sensex rose almost 28 percent in 2017 and the rally has continued in the new year. It is trading at prices that are over 26 times their underlying average earning per share. Even Uday Kotaks warning was not enough to break the general market trend (although mid-caps did face a correction soon after the red flag was raised, but other sectors more than compensated for it).

Why mustard needs to put on the national agenda
Carrots came to India from Afghanistan sometime around the 10th century; potatoes were brought by the Portuguese in the 17th century. However, theres nothing alien about mustard.
