And now, be ready to get smashed

July 30, 2019

By T.J.S. George The noose is tightening around the freedoms that have kept India going. The Right to Information Act, as the very name suggests, was a pillar of democracy. It has now been abridged with an amendment. Another amendment, passed against strong protests from the Opposition, allows the Government to declare any citizen a…

Martyrdom Vs Saudi Selfishness

July 23, 2019

By T.J.S. George If God is love, why does he allow suffering? A timeless question. The answer provided by religion is that suffering leads to enlightenment. So a rishi would stand on one leg for years, another would do tapas inside a flaming fire. Jesus took whipping as he was taken to the cross for…

Congress moving towards a split?

July 16, 2019

By T.J.S. George Rahul Gandhi’s insistence on not continuing as Congress President was the best thing that happened to the Congress in a long time.  He must stick to it. Confusion and chaos, perhaps even cracks and crumbling may follow. That, too, would be good for the party which is 134-years-old now. Everything needs renewal,…

That infamous Bishop back again

July 9, 2019

By T.J.S. George Finally, Kerala’s sensational nun-rape case will move another step forward this week. Charges against the libidinous Bishop Franco Mulakkal will come up for hearing in a Magistrate’s Court.  Resourceful parties like this Jalandhar Bishop have different ways in which they can make things drag on. But, however snail-like the progress, there is…

Do not endorse lynchings, please

July 2, 2019

By T.J.S. George In a democracy, a working majority is better than a brute majority.  This is especially so in a country like India where the structure of Democracy is honoured while the spirit is not. The effects of the brute majority enjoyed by the present government have been unhealthy as the actions and statements…

Expect new levels of Patriotism

June 25, 2019

By T.J.S. George No Parliament got off to a more disgraceful start than the one in session now.  The Prime Minister struck a high note when he said that the Opposition should not worry about numbers, that their viewpoints would be honoured. Formalities finished, mayhem began.  Oath-taking turned into a political tamasha.  If one MP…

Karnad: One man who was many men

June 18, 2019

By T.J.S. George Many things will be said, and more remembered in silent wonderment, about Girish Karnad, who appeared as one person but was in fact a congregation of identities — actor, playwright, director, essayist and, never forget, Urban Naxal.  He was a shaper of his times.  He made seminal contributions to the literary heritage…

Karnataka different from South ?

June 11, 2019

By T.J.S. George Here is an oddity that has not received the attention it deserves: In last month’s voting, the South broke from the rest of India — and Karnataka broke from the rest of the South.  What made Karnataka go out of step with Telangana, Andhra, Tamil Nadu and Kerala?  Dravidian roots are common…

June 4, 2019

By T.J.S. George In the Congress Party’s most inglorious hour, Rahul Gandhi struck a note that was gutsy and resolute.  It was brave of him to expose the selfishness of some of his senior-most colleagues.  His resoluteness over the issue of resigning became sagacious when he said that the Congress needed a President without the…
