“If restless is not there, God is there to take care. My role is to facilitate you; sometimes I can scold you, if you are with me. I cannot teach you everything in 28 session but I can sensitize you to explore more and more. If this restless will come to you, my role is over” These are the words which forward me to know why I should study macroeconomics. These are said by my economics faculty Dr. Damodar Jena. The question always arises in my mind what is the importance of economics?  When I was exposed to microeconomics in my first term one credit course, I was not sure that these difficult subjects are going to be helpful in my professional life. In second term and I studied macroeconomics but this is totally different from other management colleges. I exposed to macroeconomics with development perspective. This is a great achievement for me that I can relate my future work place to macroeconomics.

Different Ideologies of Development in World

Many times I have heard about the ideologies of development but I do not have clarity. Since ten days I was thinking to read something to get the meaning of different ideologies. Yesterday was my last formal class in Tata-Dhan Academy so no more course reading.
