arpit better write an essay on common sense:)
लहरों से डर कर नौका पार नहीं होती, कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती। नन्हीं चींटी जब दाना लेकर चलती है, चढ़ती दीवारों पर, सौ बार फिसलती है। मन का विश्वास रगों में साहस भरता है, चढ़कर गिरना, गिरकर चढ़ना न अखरता है। आख़िर उसकी मेहनत बेकार नहीं होती, कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती। डुबकियां सिंधु में गोताखोर लगाता है, जा जा कर खाली हाथ लौटकर आता है। मिलते नहीं सहज ही मोती गहरे पानी में, बढ़ता दुगना उत्साह इसी हैरानी में। मुट्ठी उसकी खाली हर बार नहीं होती, कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती। असफलता एक चुनौती है, इसे स्वीकार करो, क्या कमी रह गई, देखो और सुधार करो। जब तक न सफल हो, नींद चैन को त्यागो तुम, संघर्ष का मैदान छोड़ कर मत भागो तुम। कुछ किये बिना ही जय जय कार नहीं होती, कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती। --हरिवंशराय बच्चन #NEVER GIVE UP SIR !

China had done well in bringing down the NPAs from 30% to single digit, mainly because of the management bandwidth to extract value from a bad asset. . p re he . Privatisation of PSBs . There had been growing consensus on the privatisation of public sector banks in the current context. e ar One of the issues has been the current ownership structure [government-owned] limits their ability to take risks and hiring management-level talent.

It was not correct to entirely blame the regulator for NPAs and bank frauds. Not all NPAs happen due to frauds.
