I have interacted with Ms Dukharan for the last couple years and after listening to her attentively, I realized that she is an economist who articulates well and makes things understandable and rational. Whilst I may not agree with all her points, her discourse on economic matters are always well researched and presented, the hallmarks of a ultimate professional. Her ideas are always favorable "food for thoughts" and very pragmatic. It's a joy and relief to know that we have people of her mind around and available in the region who will hopefully play a role in our future.
