The Hindu: 22nd April 2012, Sunday

1. Pranab presses: Pg8

Relevance: Know the major proposed reforms in the international financial institutions like IMF, World Bank etc for instance more quota for emerging economies, fair appointment of heads of these institutions, more coordination with the other international institutions, structural reforms to meet avert future global crisis etc.

It may look trivial but some of us may have doubt over the core functions of World Bank group and IMF. It was even asked as a 5 marker in 2010 mains, so do know about it.

2. Jairam says: Pg7

Relevance: An important issue, valid apprehensions raised by MoRD.

Do you know about these two schemes Sampoorna Gramin Rozgar Yojana and National Food for Work Programme?

3. Syria hails: Pg8

Relevance: A welcome development in Syria. Remember specifically all the six points of Kofi Annan plan for Syria, it should serve as backbone for writing any Syria related answer in mains. This link will help:

4. Other potential 2 markers and tidbits: INS Vikaramaditya, INS Viraat, INS Vikrant(being built by Cochin Shpiyard)(Pg7), IMO-London(Pg9).

I found only these items useful in Sunday’s paper. If you could spot some thing more which is relevant to CSE please feel free to post in comments section.
