Mgr could, Jaya could, Rajini can’t

January 27, 2021

By T.J.S. George Rajinikant had publicly announced his decision to enter politics, a decision that would have changed Tamil Nadu politics drastically.  He was set to reveal the name of his party on December 31.  Then he fell ill.  Seeing that as an order from God, he said: “I regret to announce that I am…

Is this what Democracy has come to?

January 12, 2021

By T.J.S. George Incredible things are happening in America.  An incumbent President refusing to vacate office is unheard-of. Donald Trump is doing what no US President has done in the past, indeed, what no Government head in a democracy has done.  The result is not just the crumbling of American democracy; physical attacks are taking…

Decline & fall of the Congress. Again

December 22, 2020

By T.J.S. George Kapil Sibal, distinguished legal luminary who is also an ardent Congressman, said recently: “People don’t see Congress as an alternative to the existing Government. We lost all by-elections in Gujarat. In some UP Constituencies, Congress candidates got less than 2 percent votes. Three candidates in Gujarat lost their deposits.” He must have…

Obama: Legacy of a civilised mind

November 24, 2020

By T.J.S. George Barack Obama’s autobiography caught attention in India because of his remark on Rahul Gandhi and “the nervous unformed quality about him.” In the process, the sheer grandeur of the book, “A Promised Land,” escaped attention. Actually, the Obama opus is a classic, in the range it covers, in its analytical depth, and…

The thrill of changing colours

By T.J.S. George Kushboo has joined the BJP. So did Veerappan’s daughter Vidyarani some time ago. Giving the forest brigand the honour due to him, BJP made his daughter the State Vice-President of the party’s Youth Wing. Kushboo cannot expect the same high status as Veerappan’s family, but she is sure to be accommodated soon…

‘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…

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…
