Happenings after Kamba Ramayanam

September 21, 2021

By T.J.S. George It is rather foolish, politically and socially, to question what God does. But sometimes God himself makes us raise questions. Familiar legends tell us about what happened one day when he allowed leaders of the world’s great democracies to meet him and ask him any questions. This is what followed. Joe Biden…

Why I am not jealous of Ambani

August 31, 2021

By T.J.S. George In the normal course of things, people feel jealous of Mukesh Ambani for the phenomenal wealth he commands. I feel sorry for him.  What is the use of wealth if it restricts your freedom?  He has more money than I have, but less freedom. I can have fun driving around in my…

Seeing Hinduism Upside Down

August 24, 2021

By T.J.S. George Hinduism will be finished in another century,” says Abhijit Iyer Mitra, an academic.  That of course is nonsense.  If there is one religion in the world that will never be “finished,” it is Hinduism.  The most important reason is that Hinduism is not just a religion.  It is a philosophy, an attitude…

Those who giveth, those who taketh

August 10, 2021

By T.J.S. George First impressions are of course misleading. When Savji Dholakia bought a bungalow in Mumbai’s classy Worli Sea Face for Rs. 18 crore, the image of the “filthy rich” must have crossed many minds. But that image no doubt softened when further information about this rich man became available.  Apparently he is an exceptional…

India under intolerant Indians

July 27, 2021

By T.J.S. George The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) has named Delhi’s Hindu College as the best in the country in Arts and Science streams.  It is a well-deserved distinction based on its academic standards, the role played by its campus societies and its placement records. The name of the College also brings out the…

Democracy even in times of covid

April 6, 2021

By T.J.S. George We are so proud of our freedom that we don’t want even Covid to interfere with it. We mix and mingle with abandon, thanks to our freedom.  Figures show a spiralling of cases as the second wave of the pandemic is sweeping across the land. The situation is so serious that the…

‘India that is Bharat.’ Are we sure?

March 30, 2021

By T.J.S. George When religion is linked with patriotism, it can drive people to extremes.  Not long ago an Islamist group in Somalia, the Al Shabaad, banned samosas in the country.  The reasoning was that the triangular shape of the samosa was a trick to spread the trinity concept of Christianity. We haven’t reached that…

Struggle, struggle and struggle again

March 23, 2021

By T.J.S. George We have two Indias. One is dirt poor.  The other is filthy rich.  The world loves this second India. The luxury market in this India is estimated at Rs. 37,500 crore.  The culture around it is such that watches costing between Rs. 50,000 and Rs. 1.5 lakh quickly went out of fashion…

Mgr could, Jaya could, Rajini can’t

January 27, 2021

By T.J.S. George Rajinikant had publicly announced his decision to enter politics, a decision that would have changed Tamil Nadu politics drastically.  He was set to reveal the name of his party on December 31.  Then he fell ill.  Seeing that as an order from God, he said: “I regret to announce that I am…

Is this what Democracy has come to?

January 12, 2021

By T.J.S. George Incredible things are happening in America.  An incumbent President refusing to vacate office is unheard-of. Donald Trump is doing what no US President has done in the past, indeed, what no Government head in a democracy has done.  The result is not just the crumbling of American democracy; physical attacks are taking…
