  • Jat agitation: Advantageous to be disadvantaged

    Such is the perversion of democratic politics in India and the polluting of parliamentary principles with caste calculations that it has become advantageous to be disadvantaged. As the Jat agitation confirms, there is little to choose in this respect between the National Democratic Alliance and United Progressive Alliance governments. Both cynically pander to the self-interested bigotry of people like the group of village elders I once found myself with in a village

  • Now, A New Year Pledge For Congress

    The Modi Sarkar and the opposition Congress spent the entire 2015 in exchanging barbs. On the last day of the year, they made it clear that 2016 would not be different in any way.

Akbar on Monday launched a veiled attack on Congress Party president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi, by saying that Sonia Gandhi has ruined the party and is trying to ruin the country with her utter devotion to her completely inept son. Akbar said this doting behavior has made Rahul Gandhi the ‘spoilt child’ of Indian politics.

    Narendra Modi government is still work in progress

    Since there is a large section of the editorial class, at least those who are voluble and visible, whose social and political attitudes were moulded by a blend of the US campuses and liberal Manhattan, an American example should suffice to drive home a point.

    Good times never prove lasting, particularly in politics. This reality must have by now dawned on the Modi government and the BJP leadership. Narendra Modi rode to power in May 2014 securing massive popular support. It usually takes time for new governments to lose their honeymoon period. With the passage of time, their failure to fulfill their populist election promises also starts generating anti-incumbency sentiment which climaxes as the next elections near.
