Jan Lokpal or Big Brother – What Are We Lighting Candles For?

How easily futility can set in their minds like something very important and urgent, particularly when they see people like Anupam Kher, Aamir Khan,...

War on Terror or Terror of War

It didn’t all begin on 9/11. But let’s say it did. Let’s shut off the critical parts of our brains and pretend to believe in the narrative of the mainstream media and powerful governments. Let’s forget that prior to 9/11, there was a decade long collaboration between the U.S. and the Jihadists against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan which left the country in ruins and in the hands of the crazed knuckleheads. Let’s also forget those CIA sponsored coups against the popular, democratic governments and installations of puppet regimes in the Middle East which oppressed their own people but kept the oil supply running westward.

Why Calling ‘Divyang’ is Going To Hurt Disabled (Know the Politics Behind It)

There was yet another instance of ‘Mann ki Baat’, there was yet another conclusion of a foreign trip, and there was yet another self-imposed onus of giving another Mantra on Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi, or PM Modi, as affectionately called by almost all media houses, not to talk of his fans and sycophants.

Indian Premier League – A Saga of Greed, Corruption and Cricket

The vampire analogy fits the condition of Indian cricket well, which, in order to expand its reach and bank balance, embraced an experiment which turned it into something like a vampire – IPL. It is neither cricket nor entertainment, but a smudged outcome of the two, out of which an obscene face of in-your-face, soft-core pornography is visible, if you care to see – the hard-core ones are out with its commissioner Lalit Modi.

What is wrong with Hindutva?

“While Hinduism – or call it what you will – is thousands of years old, the Hindu isn’t. The Hindu of our time – or the Christian, the Muslim, the Jew, and the rest of it – is in large part a fairly recent being. He (the He-ness of it needs to be emphasized) is forcibly brought into existence by the myriad forces of modernity which unhinged him from the organic traditions of the past his forefathers had been living for centuries and left him anxious about his place in the world.”

Mr. Advani: Watch your Mouth

Old man has done it again, and this time too without being aware of what he is doing. From jai Shri Ram to Jai Shri Musharraf (Pervez Musharraf), Advani has proved to be a butt of political jokes and the most recent in the series is his senseless rattling to make...

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Help Delhi Maintain its Hygiene!

It was November morning and wintery (just on paper like everything else in India). The day was not as cold as it had to be. Regardless, I rode toward Gurgaon, feeling empowered, on my 350cc beast. The sweet sound of engine and the rustling of air through my helmet are...
