Vote for the future of India

By T.J.S. George Never was a Karnataka election more important to India than this one. Never was a Karnataka election more ruthlessly fought than this one. All bets are off. All masks are off. All decencies associated with democracy are out. The one and only objective is: Win by hook or by crook, mostly by…

Hitler, Nehru & a worthless Bose

By T.J.S. George When those who don’t have it in them think they have it in them, it’s sad. Chandra Kumar Bose was a qualified management expert who did well in the Tatas for many years. Then somebody told him that he was not just another Bose but Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s own grand-nephew. Worse,…

The age of darkness is upon us

By T.J.S. George Why should life get so degenerate so often in our country? See the multiplying rape cases, each more brutal than the other. Why should party leaders talk like party leaders and not like human beings when human issues come up? Comments on the Kathua rape horror were an indiscretion, said the BJP’s buddhijeevi,…

Promoting bad governance is bad

By T.J.S. George So it’s the mixture as before — Arun Jaitley is wise, Ministers of Southern States are dumb.  The south objected to the centre taking the 2011 population figures as the yardstick for the devolution of tax revenues to the States. Jaitley dismissed the objections in convoluted phraseology.  To wit: “Population proxies very well…

Ram Bhakti, like news, goes fake

By T.J.S. George We haven’t had a more turbulent Ramanavami in recent memory. In the name of the Lord who exiled his own wife for what he considered dharma, several adharmic activities were carried out by his alleged followers.  The Government in Delhi contributed its share of adharma with arbitrary moves purportedly to stop fake…

Why do neighbours dislike India?

By TJS George Major political shifts are taking place in India’s immediate neighbourhood — all of them inauspicious to India. In Maldives, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, local sentiments have found expression in ways unseen before. There’s a new geopolitical game being played out there, and India is not a player. Is Delhi uninterested…

A smart game in Karnataka

By TJS George The joke of the season is a BJP leader accusing Karnataka’s Congress Chief Minister of dividing people along communal lines. The BJP had combined the talents of Newton, Einstein and Chanakya to invent the science of pitting people against people in the name of religion and caste. It still remains the prime…

Time for Revisionist Communism

By T.J.S. George Governmental non- performance in Kerala and electoral devastation in Tripura gave the CPM its unfinest hour in history. Just then the imaginative leadership of the All India Kisan Sabha miraculously pushed it into its finest hour; the Nasik-Mumbai Long March of some 50,000 farmers marked a milestone in the political annals of…

Elections are now miracles

By T.J.S. George It’s miracle time in India. A tree with no roots and no leaves, nevertheless bears fruit in Tripura; the BJP, with a previous record of 0, wins 35 of 59 seats. The bigger miracle is that it does not matter who wins, it’s the BJP that will form the Government. In Meghalaya,…

The Great Bank Robbery. By All

By T.J.S. George The funny thing about the banking fraud that is rocking the country is that no one is accountable for it. The Finance Minister remained silent at first and then blamed the supervisory agencies — as though he was but an onlooker. His Cabinet colleague, the ever-unconvincing Ravishankar Prasad, blamed it on the…
