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…

Indira: The Evil and The Good

June 16, 2020

By T.G.S. George I spent an hour with Indira Gandhi last week. She was at her photogenic best, looking confident, well-groomed, attractive. She kept a camera-conscious smile all the time, though there were moments when uncomfortable questions were thrown at her and she had to make an effort to look composed. It was a 1978…

No Wimbledon. No Cinema. Why Live !

June 9, 2020

By T.J.S. George Mysuru will never be the same to me again; Southern Star, my home on many a visit, has shut down. Tennis will not be the same again; Wimbledon has been cancelled this year, an outright sin.  A cinema hall will not be a cinema hall again for any of us. How can…

After 15 Prime Ministers, What?

June 2, 2020

By T.J.S. George When history bends to the whims of those in power, beware.  The British bent it to make them look like benefactors of India. After they left, we have had 15 Prime Ministers. How did they shape history?  Some put things down on paper, so we have a fair means of forming opinions…

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. What was only a spiritual note of caution then has now acquired…

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…
