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?

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.

Time for Revisionist Communism

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…

Elections are now miracles

By T.J.S. George It’s miracle time in India. A tree with no roots and no leaves, nevertheless bears fruit in Tripura; the BJP, with a previous record of 0, wins 35 of 59 seats. The bigger miracle is that it does not matter who wins, it’s the BJP that will form the Government. In Meghalaya,…

The Great Bank Robbery. By All

By T.J.S. George The funny thing about the banking fraud that is rocking the country is that no one is accountable for it. The Finance Minister remained silent at first and then blamed the supervisory agencies — as though he was but an onlooker. His Cabinet colleague, the ever-unconvincing Ravishankar Prasad, blamed it on the…

India ‘in hands of Goondas?’

By T.J.S. George  Justice Katju is known for using language of the extreme kind. But his words hit the bull’s eye last week when he spoke to a regional channel. India, he said, was in the hands of goondas; they must be shot. He recalled how the so-called “aristocrats” were guillotined in the French Revolution. We…

How not to facelift Culture

By T.J.S. George Indian literature is the richer for the election of Chandrashekhara Kambara as President of the Sahitya Akademi. The sad part of the story is that the distinguished Oriya writer, Pratibha Ray, was put up as a political opponent and was defeated at the polls. A novelist and academician of international fame, her commitment…

China: Close to superpowerdom, but…

By T.J.S. George Confidence, authoritativeness and clear warning signals echoed from China’s published statements on the Maldives crisis. Keep off, it tells the UN. Any military intervention will be strongly resisted, it tells India. This is the new China rising to world leadership at a speed that is both remarkable and worrying. Usually China does…
