Nobel laureate economist Amartya Sen has voiced his concerns over the current political and social situation in India.
Recently Prof. Amartya Sen visited Dhaka where he attended a public lecture in Krishibid Institution. In that programme, Professor Rehman Sobhan termed Nobel Laureate Professor Sen as a 'true renaissance mind'. We don't consider this as a mere friend's praise; Professor Sen truly deserves this accolade. He is the pioneer of economic development with a strong human content and democracy with liberty and free discourse.
AT a hugely attended public lecture by Amartya Sen, courtesy of Prothom Alo and CPD on Monday, the Nobel Laureate, made some path-shinning comments of practical relevance to contemporary affairs in the subcontinent. In precise terms, he advocated development with a strong human content and democracy with liberty and free discourse.
