Budget discussions on Malayalam Channels

Today was the Kerala Budget for the year 2013-14 and this is my take on the Budget discussions: Anyone who could blabber for about five minutes peppered with words like ‘budget estimate’, ‘fiscal deficit’, ‘dhana kami’, ‘sampatika valarcha’, etc, etc, became a financial expert. With a dozen Malayalam channels and an average of six experts doing special discussions on the Budget the whole day on each channel, imagine the number of such experts we have in Kerala! Wish we could do something more productive.
