The virtuous out, the virtual in

August 25, 2020

By T.J.S. George Consider the emerging India that is Bharat. Consider a clutch of latest developments and their implications. Consider what is said and what is unsaid, what is done and what is undone. A few moments of such considerations cannot leave us elated or even modestly satisfied with what is happening to our land…

The Congress is Modi’s big advantage

August 18, 2020

By T.J.S. George Narendra Modi, of course, has gifts of leadership that put him above his challengers.  But even his admirers will agree that the weaknesses of the Congress are a big factor behind his success. Consider how the Congress reacted to his victory in 2014.  Rahul Gandhi resigned as Congress President, but the Congress…

Now Covid is the great leveller

August 11, 2020

By T.J.S. George Unity of the unexpected kind is in the air. Karnataka’s Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa caught Covid and went into quarantine, complete with hospital shirt. Soon after the news was out, Opposition Leader Siddharamaiah also caught Covid and went into hospital. Declaring solidarity with both of them, Amit Shah in Delhi got the…

Vande Bharat beats China, Covid

August 4, 2020

By T.J.S. George India’s view of, and dealings with, China are becoming curiouser and curiouser. Suddenly we are told that dozens of Chinese apps have been banned. Reasons cited include security and privacy. How come these became issues only now? For long China, like all other topics, has been a provider of opportunities for our…

Covid, another tool of Power

July 21, 2020

By T.J.S. George The Congress’ curse — and India’s — is that no one dares look outside of the Gandhis.  This is when it is obvious that dramatic changes will occur if Sonia retires and Rahul joins a team of leaders comprising Mallikarjun Kharge, Kapil Sibal and P. Chidambaram on the one side and Milind…

Why North and South do not meet

July 14, 2020

By T.J.S. George Pardon my parochialism (or is it realism?) but I do feel that North and South are different and never the twain shall meet.  It is the Aryan concepts that make things complicated.  See what Manusmriti (2nd century BCE?) says: “From the eastern sea to the western sea, the area in between the…

Giving Marx to our Leaders

July 7, 2020

By T.J.S. George Karl Marx summed up a complete philosophy when he set forth the precept, ‘From each according to his ability?’ This was not communism. It was simply the acceptance of a guiding principle of life, that every individual had a responsibility to society. Does a father or a son, a factory owner or…

Indira: The Evil and The Good

June 16, 2020

By T.G.S. George I spent an hour with Indira Gandhi last week. She was at her photogenic best, looking confident, well-groomed, attractive. She kept a camera-conscious smile all the time, though there were moments when uncomfortable questions were thrown at her and she had to make an effort to look composed. It was a 1978…

No Wimbledon. No Cinema. Why Live !

June 9, 2020

By T.J.S. George Mysuru will never be the same to me again; Southern Star, my home on many a visit, has shut down. Tennis will not be the same again; Wimbledon has been cancelled this year, an outright sin.  A cinema hall will not be a cinema hall again for any of us. How can…

After 15 Prime Ministers, What?

June 2, 2020

By T.J.S. George When history bends to the whims of those in power, beware.  The British bent it to make them look like benefactors of India. After they left, we have had 15 Prime Ministers. How did they shape history?  Some put things down on paper, so we have a fair means of forming opinions…
