‘Loyalists’ injurious to health

September 22, 2020

By T.J.S. George In a non-democratic family enterprise such as the Congress, even the appearance of rebellion is unthinkable. That is why last month’s letter of dissent by 23 senior leaders triggered an earthquake in the party. The letter was in fact no rebellion.  It raised a call for internal reform, a reasonable idea in…

All the lying they have done

September 8, 2020

By T.J.S. George A few days ago, for the first time in my eventful life, I felt jealous of the Americans. I was watching a press conference with President Trump facing his usual crowd of White House correspondents.  One of them, with no dramatics, leaned back on his chair and asked matter-of-factly: “Do you regret…

Congress: Exploding from within ?

September 1, 2020

By T.J.S. George There was a storm in the Congress teacup last week. It re-established two facts.  One, that there is a section of Congressmen who now see the Gandhi family’s hold on the party as unhealthy.  Two, that they are not strong enough to prevail.  Hangers-on of the family, benefiting from being hangers-on, dominate…

The virtuous out, the virtual in

August 25, 2020

By T.J.S. George Consider the emerging India that is Bharat. Consider a clutch of latest developments and their implications. Consider what is said and what is unsaid, what is done and what is undone. A few moments of such considerations cannot leave us elated or even modestly satisfied with what is happening to our land…

The Congress is Modi’s big advantage

August 18, 2020

By T.J.S. George Narendra Modi, of course, has gifts of leadership that put him above his challengers.  But even his admirers will agree that the weaknesses of the Congress are a big factor behind his success. Consider how the Congress reacted to his victory in 2014.  Rahul Gandhi resigned as Congress President, but the Congress…

Now Covid is the great leveller

August 11, 2020

By T.J.S. George Unity of the unexpected kind is in the air. Karnataka’s Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa caught Covid and went into quarantine, complete with hospital shirt. Soon after the news was out, Opposition Leader Siddharamaiah also caught Covid and went into hospital. Declaring solidarity with both of them, Amit Shah in Delhi got the…

Vande Bharat beats China, Covid

August 4, 2020

By T.J.S. George India’s view of, and dealings with, China are becoming curiouser and curiouser. Suddenly we are told that dozens of Chinese apps have been banned. Reasons cited include security and privacy. How come these became issues only now? For long China, like all other topics, has been a provider of opportunities for our…

Covid, another tool of Power

July 21, 2020

By T.J.S. George The Congress’ curse — and India’s — is that no one dares look outside of the Gandhis.  This is when it is obvious that dramatic changes will occur if Sonia retires and Rahul joins a team of leaders comprising Mallikarjun Kharge, Kapil Sibal and P. Chidambaram on the one side and Milind…

Why North and South do not meet

July 14, 2020

By T.J.S. George Pardon my parochialism (or is it realism?) but I do feel that North and South are different and never the twain shall meet.  It is the Aryan concepts that make things complicated.  See what Manusmriti (2nd century BCE?) says: “From the eastern sea to the western sea, the area in between the…

Giving Marx to our Leaders

July 7, 2020

By T.J.S. George Karl Marx summed up a complete philosophy when he set forth the precept, ‘From each according to his ability?’ This was not communism. It was simply the acceptance of a guiding principle of life, that every individual had a responsibility to society. Does a father or a son, a factory owner or…
