Weekend Links: February 15 2014

Arvind Kejriwal resigned as Delhi CM yesterday, and finally changed my mind on the AAP, and turned me from someone who was hopeful that his party would bring about change to someone who now feels it was nothing more than some more tamasha added to the political theater in India. I have read and understand the arguments in favor of his resignation, but I find it hard to accept any of them given the current circumstances.

A lot of what’s written about this topic is mere fluff or very biased reporting, so I was glad to read Vidya Subrahmaniam’s editorial in The Hindu which beautifully pens down the topic of a third alternative in Indian politics.

The Pakistan Taliban has been growing in power, and has caused a lot of attacks in Pakistan in the past few years. A good article about this in the WSJ.

Dr. Bibek Debroy, on the Seventh Pay Commission.

Mark Zuckerberg’s 2014 personal challenge seems a lot tamer than his earlier challenges until you try to do it yourself.

The NYT magazine has an interesting article: Does a more equal marriage means less sex?

The Economist, on the global economy in 2014.

Almost all of these strange sounding facts were new to me.

Enjoy  your weekend!
