That infamous Bishop back again

July 9, 2019

By T.J.S. George Finally, Kerala’s sensational nun-rape case will move another step forward this week. Charges against the libidinous Bishop Franco Mulakkal will come up for hearing in a Magistrate’s Court.  Resourceful parties like this Jalandhar Bishop have different ways in which they can make things drag on. But, however snail-like the progress, there is…

Do not endorse lynchings, please

July 2, 2019

By T.J.S. George In a democracy, a working majority is better than a brute majority.  This is especially so in a country like India where the structure of Democracy is honoured while the spirit is not. The effects of the brute majority enjoyed by the present government have been unhealthy as the actions and statements…

Expect new levels of Patriotism

June 25, 2019

By T.J.S. George No Parliament got off to a more disgraceful start than the one in session now.  The Prime Minister struck a high note when he said that the Opposition should not worry about numbers, that their viewpoints would be honoured. Formalities finished, mayhem began.  Oath-taking turned into a political tamasha.  If one MP…

Karnad: One man who was many men

June 18, 2019

By T.J.S. George Many things will be said, and more remembered in silent wonderment, about Girish Karnad, who appeared as one person but was in fact a congregation of identities — actor, playwright, director, essayist and, never forget, Urban Naxal.  He was a shaper of his times.  He made seminal contributions to the literary heritage…

Karnataka different from South ?

June 11, 2019

By T.J.S. George Here is an oddity that has not received the attention it deserves: In last month’s voting, the South broke from the rest of India — and Karnataka broke from the rest of the South.  What made Karnataka go out of step with Telangana, Andhra, Tamil Nadu and Kerala?  Dravidian roots are common…

June 4, 2019

By T.J.S. George In the Congress Party’s most inglorious hour, Rahul Gandhi struck a note that was gutsy and resolute.  It was brave of him to expose the selfishness of some of his senior-most colleagues.  His resoluteness over the issue of resigning became sagacious when he said that the Congress needed a President without the…

All set for the next 20 years

May 28, 2019

By T.J.S. George When the enormity of it all sank in — the overwhelmingness of the exit polls, their near unanimous predictions, and then the final numbers that burst like pellet bombs — I found myself staring into the silence of the losers.  Honesty being the best policy, I need to admit that I was…

Now, sad things about democracy

May 21, 2019

By T.J.S. George Two days from today, India will change.  That change will affect the country’s fundamentals. If the BJP wins a majority, the ongoing attempts to recast the soul of India will be triumphantly accelerated, altering the original DNA that was configured by the nation’s founding fathers.  If a non-BJP coalition gets control, our…

The transmitter of civilisation

May 14, 2019

By T.J.S. George In the way he lived and interacted with others in everyday life, N.R. Madhava Menon was a very ordinary man.  His extraordinariness came out when his mind opened up. He pioneered a new approach to law education which at once became the standard across the country.  The very name he coined,  Law…

Why do the rich turn terrorist ?

May 7, 2019

By T.J.S. George The suicide bombers, who wreaked havoc in Sri Lanka, were all set to strike in Kerala too. Clearly,  networks exist without borders and contacts are continuous.  The ISIS, alleged to be the main player in the attacks, has links in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.  The Lankan ally which actually pulled the trigger,…
