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…

Decline & fall of the Congress. Again

December 22, 2020

By T.J.S. George Kapil Sibal, distinguished legal luminary who is also an ardent Congressman, said recently: “People don’t see Congress as an alternative to the existing Government. We lost all by-elections in Gujarat. In some UP Constituencies, Congress candidates got less than 2 percent votes. Three candidates in Gujarat lost their deposits.” He must have…

Tharoor-style non-stop stimulation

December 1, 2020

By T.J.S. George Shashi Tharoor seems to be a non-stop writing machine.  He is a busy man — Member of Parliament, in-demand public speaker, international traveller and what not. In the midst of all that, he finds the time and the energy to turn out not just any book, but thick volumes full of research…

Obama: Legacy of a civilised mind

November 24, 2020

By T.J.S. George Barack Obama’s autobiography caught attention in India because of his remark on Rahul Gandhi and “the nervous unformed quality about him.” In the process, the sheer grandeur of the book, “A Promised Land,” escaped attention.

By T.J.S. George Kushboo has joined the BJP. So did Veerappan’s daughter Vidyarani some time ago. Giving the forest brigand the honour due to him, BJP made his daughter the State Vice-President of the party’s Youth Wing.
