Indian economic success but dire poverty
Brilliant economics MPhil student Mahima Khanna from Kolkata, Bengal, has been awarded the prestigious Stevenson Prize by the University of Cambridge for her outstanding economics research work. She has become the third Indian to receive this award after eminent economists Professors Amartya Sen and Sir Patha Dasgupta. However India’s economic success must reach all Indians. It must be noted that 1998 Economics Nobel Laureate Professor Amartya Sen is also from Bengal and is a former Master of Trinity College, Cambridge. Sir Partha Dasgupta is Frank Ramsey Professor of Economics at the University of Cambridge, UK, and is from Kolkata, Bengal.
