We often want economics to be able to predict the next crisis, while dismissing sound economic insights that may be a century old.Where is the science in economics?

The Republic of India is often a Republic of men. While men and women nationally enjoy the same rights, we are yet to solve many of the social failures from decades ago. Child marriage for women remains the norm in many parts of the country, many girls drop out early from education, and women's participation in the labour force is dropping drastically. Understanding the challenges faced by adolescent women in India can help us unpack why Indian society and governments are failing half the population in so many ways. Shireen Jejebhoy, Manisha Gupte and Richa Patel join Pavan Srinath on the Pragati Podcast to help with just that. The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talkshow on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath. This episode was made possible thanks to the Ab Meri Baari campaign run by the Dasra 10 to 19 Collaborative. The campaign aims to improve the lives of adolescent girls between the ages of 10 and 19, and empower them. As a part of the campaign, 300 girl champions were selected across Jharkhand and Rajasthan to conduct a social audit of all government services directed towards them. Dasra is a philanthropic organisation that facilitates social change by driving collaborative action between funders, development organisations and communities. Shireen Jejeebhoy is a demographer and social scientist whose work has focused on young people's health and development. Manisha Gupte has been part of the women's and health rights movements in India since the mid-1970s, and co-founded MASUM -- a rural women's organisation in Maharashtra that has been active since 1987. Richa Patel is a communications specialist and a team lead at Dasra, who's also instrumental in making this and the previous episode possible.

India has made strides in improving the health, well-being and lives of infants and expecting mothers over the last several decades. But once children enter school and enter adolescence, they get lost as a public priority till they enter adulthood. Adolescence is a time of great physical, physiological and intellectual development and upheaval for all of us. Adolescents also need special protection of their rights, especially their sexual and reproductive health and rights. On Episode 122 of The Pragati Podcast, Dr. Lakshmi Lingam, Dr Rama Shyam and Gurpriya Singh talk to host Pavan Srinath about the challenges faced by adolescents across India, especially girls. This episode was made possible thanks to the Ab Meri Baari campaign run by the Dasra 10 to19 Collaborative. The campaign aims to improve the lives of adolescent girls between the ages of 10 and 19, and empower them. As a part of the campaign, 300 girl champions were selected across Jharkhand and Rajasthan to conduct a social audit of all government services directed towards them. Dasra is a philanthropic organisation that facilitates social change by driving collaborative action between funders, development organisations and communities. Dr Lakshmi Lingam is a Professor at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences and a gender-specialist. Dr Rama Shyam runs the Empowerment, Health & Sexuality of Adolescents (EHSAS) programme at SNEHA, Mumbai and is the co-founder of SAFER - the Society for Awareness, Harmony and Equal Rights. Gurpriya Singh is a development professional working at Dasra, where she has most recently been working on the Ab Meri Baari campaign implementing social and behavioral change strategies in Jharkhand and Rajasthan.

The Indian State has incredible ambition, but often falls very short of meeting grand outcomes. The mismatch is linked to State Capacity, a nebulous concept at the best of times. Prakhar Misra is on Episode 121 of The Pragati Podcast to help us understand what state capacity is, how it could be measured, and how India can improve its state capacity rapidly. The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talk-show on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath. Prakhar Misra is an Associate at IDFC Institute. His research focuses on data empowerment and privacy, and the link between infrastructure investment and job creation.

The States Reorganisation Act came into effect 63 years ago to this day, on November 1, 1956. India's states as we know them started taking their shape then. Many states like Karnataka, Kerala, West Bengal and others celebrate this as a State Formation Day or a 'Rajyotsava' Day. How have Indian states fared since they were formed, and how should they think of themselves in the coming decades? Can state governments in India rise to meet the expectations of its residents? Can state residents demand more from their elected state leaders? Pranay Kotasthane returns to The Pragati Podcast to talk about the future of Indian states.

Edit "Rocket science" has moved well beyond rocketry in the 21st century. Even the Jet Propulsion Lab in California hasn't done any rocket science in the last several decades, focusing entirely on robotic space missions instead. One of the big challenges with space programmes today is designing and managing complex systems, where spacecraft can autonomously make decisions in uncertain environments. Anne Devereaux joins Pavan Srinath on Episode 115 of The Pragati Podcast to share how NASA and JPL plan and manage interplanetary missions. The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talkshow on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath . Ann Devereaux  is the manager for spacecraft system engineering at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and was the lead flight system engineer for the upcoming Mars 2020 rover. Previously, she worked on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover project, ultimately becoming lead system engineer for the flight system and fault protection, and deputy lead for the Entry, Descent and Landing team. Ann is an electrical engineer by training, and has spent close to three decades in various roles at JPL. This episode was recorded during Ann's visit to Bangalore that was made possible thanks to the United States Consulate in Chennai .

India's judicial system operates at three levels: the Supreme Court at the national level, High Courts at the state level, and city or district level courts at the local level. A lot of the public interest in how India's courts are doing is largely directed at High Courts and the Supreme Court, but the most impactful judicial reforms have to start at the local level. Surya Prakash BS joins Pavan Srinath on Episode 114 of The Pragati Podcast to help us understand the functioning of the subordinate judiciary. The Pragati Podcast is a weekly talkshow on public policy, economics and international relations hosted by Pavan Srinath.
