Ready for a Grave New World?

May 26, 2020

By T.J.S. George Virus cannot beat humour. A fun story circulating on the internet is titled “Class of 2025.” A delightfully strict school teacher calls out her class attendance … Quarantine Joshi, Lockdown Singh Rathore, Covid Awasthi, Corona Pal Singh, Social Distance Singh, Mask Mahto, Gloves Gaekwad, Wuhan Bhadoria.  When Wuhan does not respond, she…

Criticism cannot be sedition

May 19, 2020

By T.J.S. George Two things worry me. Deeply. Feeling patriotic, I sat glued to the television set for the Prime Minister’s “address to the nation.” After two minutes I felt hungry and moved to the dining table. Like me the majority of people in the South must have lost interest in the Hindi prabhashan. I…

The world to end in 30 years?

April 28, 2020

By T.J.S. George The story is that a man used to walk up and down London’s glamorous Oxford Street with a placard proclaiming “the end is nigh.”  The idea was to encourage people to repent their sins and prepare for the imminent apocalypse.

THE TRUTH IS: WE ARE MEANINGLESS

April 21, 2020

By T.J.S. George Sardar Patel’s statue at Ahmedabad was recently advertised for sale at Rs. 30,000 crore by “unknown persons.” Clearly it was someone’s idea of a joke and could have been dismissed as such. But the quality of humour is strained; it droppeth as the gentle rain for only the cultured. It blesseth him…

Can we feel good in a hospital ?

April 7, 2020

By T.J.S. George So, a mere virus is enough to bring humanity on its knees.  The phrase “mere virus” may be an understatement in the present context, for corona has not only changed everybody’s lifestyle but is changing also the way society functions.  Life is teaching us that an invisible invader, ten-thousandth of a millimetre…

By T.J.S. George The Coronavirus is anti-national because it has undermined our international diplomacy.  As everyone knows, Prime Minister Modi developed the full-body embrace as the dominant feature of India’s foreign policy.  Donald Trump, France’s Macron, Japan’s Abe, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince, Australia’s Prime Minister have all savoured the impact of the bear hug.  Barack…

Patriotism’s new call: Goli Maaro!

March 10, 2020

By T.J.S. George The hills are alive with the sound of slogans.  We’ve sung for a thousand years Inquilab Zindabad.  The heart still wants to sing Hindustan Hamara. The halls fill the soul with the sound of Jai Hind, now said at the end of every speech. Above and beyond all this has emerged a…

The Showman and his Trump Card

March 3, 2020

By T.J.S. George The Greatest Show on Earth made by Cecil B. DeMille 58 years ago was imaginary, meant to entertain filmgoers.  The Greatest Show on Earth 2020 staged by Narendra Modi last week was real, meant to impress one man. It was clear that Donald Trump had never seen such an extravaganza in his…

Citizen is always manipulated

February 25, 2020

By T.J.S. George At last P.V. Narasimha Rao has been called what he really was, “the first BJP Prime Minister of India.”  The assertion is made by his own confidant P.V.R.K.
