Meena Auntie and the fiscal deficit

So I have an article in the Business Standard today.

Meena auntie and the fiscal deficit
Should we still cherish the social security conceived in Nehruvian socialism? Vivek Oberoi finds out

Meena auntie died a few months ago after a prolonged battle with throat cancer and asthma. She had a tough life and the end wasn't much better. I have thought of her quite a bit in the last few months.
Every time I think of her, I think about the fiscal deficit. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and gang (various economists affiliated to colleges, think tanks, financial markets) have been pressuring the Indian government to reduce the deficit.
