COVID-19 Effects

April 4, 2020

Lights out, lamps on… and the plan? We have another request from our Prime Minister. First we clapped for 5 minutes at 5 o’ clock, next we have to light lamps for 9 minutes at 9 o’ clock. What next? May be, chant for 10 minutes at 10 o’ clock… for positive energy? Indeed, collective…

A testing time for all…

March 21, 2020

Finally, our Prime Minister spoke. And it was a damp squib. It left us wanting, wanting something more.  Ever since the 8 pm address of November 8, 2016, the night of demonetisation, any address by the PM at 8 pm makes people anxious. As the March 19, 2020, address was announced, some people went out…

Namaste and keep distance please !

March 14, 2020

For the past few weeks having been told not to touch my face I have started behaving like cricketer Krishnamachari Srikkanth — contorting my face, as I am unable to scratch my eyes, nose or face when it itches. I also feel like putting a sticker ‘Keep distance’, like they have behind lorries as we…

We need public art

March 7, 2020

Our city, which is often called the cultural capital, is littered with statues and busts more often with a political intention to appease various communities rather than for cultural reasons. But in the past few years a few citizens with an artistic inclination have offered to install public art that is not political  but artistic…

Hate in the time of Coronavirus

February 29, 2020

Coronavirus brings death, but it sure is less macabre than the death brought by rioting mobs of Delhi. Coronavirus kills one with fever, unlike rioters in East Delhi who killed Ankit Sharma with hundreds of stab wounds or shot Mudassir Khan in his head as he simply stood outside his house. May be the real…

Political Pawns?

February 22, 2020

On 20th of February at an anti- CAA event in Bengaluru, a 19-year-old Amulya Leona, an under-graduate student, was given the microphone to say a few words against the CAA. And she did so in dramatic fashion.  She began by shouting “Pakistan Zindabad.” Then after a dramatic pause she again shouted “Pakistan Zindabad”, hoping the…

Aam-azing!

February 16, 2020

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win. These words ring so true for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).  Many may remember in 2013 the National parties, BJP and Congress, first ignored them. Then they ridiculed them, with the BJP calling them a ‘chillar party’ and Congress calling…

Misinformation virus (Coronavirus)

February 8, 2020

As we stepped into the New Year, we were welcomed by a new strain of Coronavirus (CoV). A virus named so because the protein spikes around the virus makes it look like a crown and in Latin corona means crown. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from common cold to…

Armed Forces… stay at arm’s distance

January 18, 2020

In the last few years, Army Chiefs and senior security personnel have met the Press and spoken quite candidly. And that interaction has dragged them into a public debate, interpretation and criticism which has become political fodder. Recently, the first Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat said, de-radicalisation camps are operating in the country…
