Section 1 - Investing & Personal Finance
Good ideas can’t be scheduled [LINK]

Section 2 - Economic Trends & Themes
Adityanath has picked up Modi playscript [LINK]
The chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, has launched an advertising blitzkrieg to showcase the state as a prime investment destination.
