Tughlak lives, so do his ideas

November 12, 2019

By T.J.S. George Plans are proceeding at breakneck speed to change the history, geography, archaeology, philosophy and essence of Delhi.  The central vista, the imposing Secretariat buildings, Raj Path with its sprawling expanses on both sides, even the majestic Parliament building will all be gone.  A completely new capital city will rise from the ashes. …

Economics Nobel goes to a cook

October 30, 2019

By T.J.S. George Let us say I am picked for the Nobel Prize for writing the finest newspaper column since printing began.  Should I feel happy about it or dejected? That is a dilemma peculiar to India. In any other country, a citizen getting a Nobel will be an occasion for rejoicing.  In our country…

All about Queen Elizabeth and me

October 22, 2019

By T.J.S. George I have a personal link with the British royal family, in particular Queen Elizabeth. I was pleased, therefore, to see splendid photographs of her on British Parliament’s opening day last week. How magnificent she looked in the grand setting of a ceremonially decked up Parliament. She looked resplendent, the jewel-encrusted imperial crown…

Lynching and the ethos of Bharat

October 15, 2019

By T.J.S. George Okay, so lynching is phoren. “It never happened in Bharat,” said Mohan Bhagwat, well informed on such matters. “It is not a word from Indian ethos.” He then moved on to a different kind of assertion. “It is a Western plot to defame India,” he said. That’s where some difficulty arises. Why…

Now we know Gandhi was a fraud

October 10, 2019

By T.J.S. George I have always felt patriotic and proud on Gandhi Jayanti days.  Not this time.  This time I was aware that Gandhi was a fake.  As usual, newspapers were full of Gandhi last week.  Schools and Colleges and associations of all kinds held functions to mark the 150th anniversary of the man they…

Secret of success: Showmanship

October 1, 2019

By T.J.S. George What spectacle! What drama! What breathtaking orchestration! Narendra Modi’s pulling power was in evidence all through his triumphant tour of the US and especially his thundering performance at Houston with the US President himself playing second fiddle.  Such was the impression he made that influential newspapers like New York Times and Wall…

Why Malayalam Outclasses Hindi

September 24, 2019

By T.J.S. George Anything touching mother and mother-tongue is not negotiable.  So strong is the sentiment that Amit Shah had to soften his stand. I am convinced that Malayalam should be declared the national language of India.  Of the many reasons, consider just two.  It is a universal language spoken all over the globe and…

Butterflies and all things good

September 17, 2019

By T.J.S. George When you are a downside-up man condemned to horizontality in bed, you start imagining that the world is plotting against you.  A butterfly on the window or an itch on the left hand are seen as messages meant for you. Across cultures, the butterfly is a symbol of hope indicating good days…

World as seen from downside-up

September 10, 2019

By T.J.S. George I have hardly ever used, in more than two decades of writing this column, the word this sentence begins with — the first person singular I. Change is the stuff of life and the time for change comes when you are ordered to lie flat on your back motionless. Human bodies are…

Jaitley put his stamp on history

September 3, 2019

By T.J.S. George Arun Jaitley’s connection with Gujarat led to epochal developments.  There he came in contact with Narendra Modi and chemistry got to work. Was it an accident of circumstance? Or did Jaitley, the astute Mr. Brain of the BJP, see something in Modi that others did not?  What we know is that it…
