In the time of Frank Moraes, too

March 24, 2020

By T.J.S. George Love in the time of Cholera ended up with love winning; author Gabriel Marquez wouldn’t have it any other way.  Struggle in the time of Corona is not that easily resolved because petty interests are involved. Donald Trump called it “Chinese Virus” although, in 2018, he took the irresponsible decision to fire…

By T.J.S. George The Coronavirus is anti-national because it has undermined our international diplomacy.  As everyone knows, Prime Minister Modi developed the full-body embrace as the dominant feature of India’s foreign policy.  Donald Trump, France’s Macron, Japan’s Abe, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince, Australia’s Prime Minister have all savoured the impact of the bear hug.  Barack…

Patriotism’s new call: Goli Maaro!

March 10, 2020

By T.J.S. George The hills are alive with the sound of slogans.  We’ve sung for a thousand years Inquilab Zindabad.  The heart still wants to sing Hindustan Hamara. The halls fill the soul with the sound of Jai Hind, now said at the end of every speech. Above and beyond all this has emerged a…

The Showman and his Trump Card

March 3, 2020

By T.J.S. George The Greatest Show on Earth made by Cecil B. DeMille 58 years ago was imaginary, meant to entertain filmgoers.  The Greatest Show on Earth 2020 staged by Narendra Modi last week was real, meant to impress one man. It was clear that Donald Trump had never seen such an extravaganza in his…

Citizen is always manipulated

February 25, 2020

By T.J.S. George At last P.V. Narasimha Rao has been called what he really was, “the first BJP Prime Minister of India.”  The assertion is made by his own confidant P.V.R.K. Prasad in his book Asalem Jarigindante (What really happened).  A cursory look is enough to see that Rao tried to do exactly what Narendra…

When God is not a vote catcher

February 18, 2020

By T.J.S. George Aam Aadmi’s victory in Delhi was of course no surprise.  Then again, it was a big surprise. How could a common man’s party win over a party headed by very uncommon men? Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia are Lilliputians over whom Narendra Modi and Amit Shah tower as Brobdingnagians.  Perhaps that itself…

The bad BJP faces the good BJP

February 11, 2020

By T.J.S. George Power makes small people smaller.  When the wheel of history turned and BJP became the ruling party, many of its adherents saw India exclusively as Bharat, their inheritance to play with.  The tactically wise among them spoke in moderate terms even as they pushed their agenda forward.  Prime Minister Modi, for example,…

Krishna Menon, alive and kicking

January 28, 2020

By T.J.S. George In the 1950s, the Urbs Prima in Indies was Bombay, not Delhi.  All important people lived there, all influential newspapers were published there, all ideological battles were fought there.  Into this theatre of war came V.K. Krishna Menon, all guns blazing. The theatre of the absurd followed.  Krishna Menon was a Congressman…

Belur to Tagore: Who is Tagore ?

January 21, 2020

By T.J.S. George Prime Minister Modiji said at Belur Mutt: “Swami Vivekananda lives in the hearts and minds of crores of Indians.” Then he said: “The new citizenship laws will not take away anyone’s citizenship.”  Then two things happened. 1.  The Belur Mutt lost no time in distancing itself from the Prime Minister’s position.  The…

Warning: A New Generation Rises

January 14, 2020

By T.J.S. George What is happening to our country?  Suddenly, it is a ship drifting in a storm, rudderless and captainless.  The brutality that was unleashed in JNU last week was unprecedented, more in-your-face than the violence that recently rocked Jamia Milia and Aligarh.  The goons, who beat up students and teachers at JNU, were…
