Can Congress stop working for Bjp?

May 3, 2022

By T.J.S. George Some of our regional languages have a wisdom saying that goes: “Dad, don’t keep beating me.  I won’t improve.” The current equivalent of that wisdom is: “Fellow citizens, don’t prefer this party over that.  All are stuck in the same rut of opportunism.”  For a democracy, this is a tragic situation. But…

Learn from the decline of Sri Lanka

April 5, 2022

By T.J.S. George What a tragedy Sri Lanka has become.  All school examinations have been cancelled because there is no paper.  There is no paper because there is no money to import it.  There is no fuel for cooking.  A thousand bakeries are closed.  Many power plants have shut down leading to extensive power cuts….

The musical phenomenon we lost

February 22, 2022

By T.J.S. George Lata Mangeshkar was, after all, just a playback singer — one who played in the background while actors took the limelight.  Yet, when she passed away, India paused.  Linguistic and regional sentiments disappeared as all of India felt the loss of a national asset.  The Government ordered a two-day national mourning and…

In UP, BJP’s leaders know only love

January 25, 2022

By T.J.S. George In a matter of weeks, Uttar Pradeshians will be lining up to vote.  This election will be of considerable significance to all of India.

A Welcome Book of Assertive History

January 18, 2022

By T.J.S. George A remarkable anthology has come out.  It is misleadingly titled as “Two hundred years of English prose.”  The main title of the book is just as erroneous: “The Book of Indian Essays.” This book is more than just “English prose” and “Indian essays.”  It is an assertive history of India, outlined by…

Listen to Electron and his brothers

January 11, 2022

By T.J.S. George The lawyer’s name is Electron.  That is right, a practising lawyer whose name is Electron.  If any confirmation is required, please meet his brothers, Proton and Neutron.  These are real names of real people.  Of course, they are in Kerala, a place where impossible things turn possible. It was not an eccentric…

Too many vip deaths. Something amiss ?

December 14, 2021

By T.J.S. George Why do so many of our VIPs die in accidents? No one will say that murderous groups are plotting behind the scenes.  Almost all the accidents that killed our leaders were truly accidents. Could it be that our planes and choppers suffer from poor maintenance? They are said to be in the…

Porbandar, Phulpur: Lessons to Learn

October 12, 2021

By T.J.S. George Must things go from bad to worse as civilisation progresses? Of course not. In civilised societies, everyday routines go from good to better.  New York’s subway system, one of the largest in the world, has coped very well with the city’s growth in population as well as in daily activities.  London’s underground,…

A Kanhaiya opportunity for Congress

October 5, 2021

By T.J.S. George What is happening in the Congress Party?  The one-and-only Kanhaiya Kumar quits Communist ranks and joins the Congress. Amarinder Singh, who led the Punjab Government as though he was still the Maharaja of Patiala, finds himself summarily dismissed by a suddenly assertive Congress Party. Whereupon, without the slightest embarrassment, he drives into…
