2020 TOO?

January 1, 2022

There was much anticipation and hope for 2021. Sadly 2021, while not as bad as 2020, has ended on a sombre note. It reminds me of the joke: If we make it past 2020, I’ll be dreading 2022 because 2022 is 2020 too. With Omicron on the rise, let’s hope it doesn’t come true. 2021,…

Do we need MLCs?

Election for Membership to the Karnataka Legislative Council (MLC) from Local Authorities’ Constituency concluded recently. Unfortunately, there was more talk of how much money candidates paid to get tickets and how much money they distributed to voters than talk of what each candidate would do if elected.

Want Olympic Gold ? Then Fund sports

August 7, 2021

Interest in sports, other than cricket, is a seasonal affair in our country. Now that the Olympic Games are here, there is patriotism-driven interest rather than love for a sport.
