Their Democracy ain’t like ours

May 29, 2018

By T.J.S. George Democracy in India is entertaining, except that its disruptive side makes the entertainment not enjoyable. In mature democracies, parties fight it out at election time, then settle down to governance. Even when an unpopular leader gets elected, the system allows him to run his course. In our country the system never gets a…

No 15 days to purchase majority!

By T.J.S. George Here is what the Buddha said about Karnataka elections: “There are many difficulties to overcome in this world. It is hard for a proud man to learn the way of enlightenment.  It is hard not to argue about right and wrong.  It is hard to find a good method.  It is hard…

By T.J.S. George The time gap between voting day and results day is one of the afflictions of democracy. The tension is excruciating when it’s an election that will decide the temper of life for a considerable length of time. Will the freedoms we have taken for granted for 68 years continue as before, or…

Vote for the future of India

May 8, 2018

By T.J.S. George Never was a Karnataka election more important to India than this one. Never was a Karnataka election more ruthlessly fought than this one. All bets are off. All masks are off. All decencies associated with democracy are out. The one and only objective is: Win by hook or by crook, mostly by…

Hitler, Nehru & a worthless Bose

May 2, 2018

By T.J.S. George When those who don’t have it in them think they have it in them, it’s sad. Chandra Kumar Bose was a qualified management expert who did well in the Tatas for many years. Then somebody told him that he was not just another Bose but Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s own grand-nephew. Worse,…

The age of darkness is upon us

April 24, 2018

By T.J.S. George Why should life get so degenerate so often in our country? See the multiplying rape cases, each more brutal than the other. Why should party leaders talk like party leaders and not like human beings when human issues come up? Comments on the Kathua rape horror were an indiscretion, said the BJP’s buddhijeevi,…

Promoting bad governance is bad

April 17, 2018

By T.J.S. George So it’s the mixture as before — Arun Jaitley is wise, Ministers of Southern States are dumb.  The south objected to the centre taking the 2011 population figures as the yardstick for the devolution of tax revenues to the States. Jaitley dismissed the objections in convoluted phraseology.  To wit: “Population proxies very well…

Ram Bhakti, like news, goes fake

By T.J.S. George We haven’t had a more turbulent Ramanavami in recent memory. In the name of the Lord who exiled his own wife for what he considered dharma, several adharmic activities were carried out by his alleged followers.  The Government in Delhi contributed its share of adharma with arbitrary moves purportedly to stop fake…

Why do neighbours dislike India?

April 3, 2018

By TJS George Major political shifts are taking place in India’s immediate neighbourhood — all of them inauspicious to India. In Maldives, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, local sentiments have found expression in ways unseen before. There’s a new geopolitical game being played out there, and India is not a player. Is Delhi uninterested…

Time for Revisionist Communism

March 20, 2018

By T.J.S. George Governmental non- performance in Kerala and electoral devastation in Tripura gave the CPM its unfinest hour in history. Just then the imaginative leadership of the All India Kisan Sabha miraculously pushed it into its finest hour; the Nasik-Mumbai Long March of some 50,000 farmers marked a milestone in the political annals of…
