Vijai Ekambaram (Highly likely) says
Well Analysis is more about looking at numbers and comparing them against previous years and against numbers under other spending heads and determining whether a particular item is poised for growth or not. And accordingly - after this math is made - connecting the dots - for example if the sector under question being "Education" can be peppered with comments from eminent fieldsmen in that domain and accordingly arrive at what is in store.
