Hate in the time of Coronavirus

February 29, 2020

Coronavirus brings death, but it sure is less macabre than the death brought by rioting mobs of Delhi. Coronavirus kills one with fever, unlike rioters in East Delhi who killed Ankit Sharma with hundreds of stab wounds or shot Mudassir Khan in his head as he simply stood outside his house. May be the real…

On 20th of February at an anti- CAA event in Bengaluru, a 19-year-old Amulya Leona, an under-graduate student, was given the microphone to say a few words against the CAA.

Aam-azing!

February 16, 2020

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win. These words ring so true for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).  Many may remember in 2013 the National parties, BJP and Congress, first ignored them.

January 18, 2020

In the last few years, Army Chiefs and senior security personnel have met the Press and spoken quite candidly. And that interaction has dragged them into a public debate, interpretation and criticism which has become political fodder.

As we have had a politically charged week with protests and violence, it’s time for some inane banter. This reminds me of my dinner a few days ago. I had been to Olive Garden restaurant and after we sat down, I noticed a young girl frantically asking the waiter if he had an iphone charger?…

Secular Who?

December 21, 2019

So, protests continue. While initially the protest was against leaving out illegal Muslims from Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), it has now moved to a ‘pre-emptive protest’ against National Register of Citizens (NRC).
