Congress Debacle: More Questions than Answers
There are many questions which are in need of answers. The answers to these questions are the key to Congress revival.
It's just politics, right?
Inclusive alliances are the way forward in Indian politics, and if Bihar is anything to go by, the opposition parties around the country have a lot of work to do.
Politics after US Election Results
The US election is a signal that the world has not reached a dead end or impasse with no other options.
India-US Partnership: A moment for optimism or caution?
There is every reason for the US to be optimistic about bilateral relations with India, but there are many reasons for India to be cautious about a strategic partnership with the US.
A Hole in BJP’s Maharashtra Umbrella
Senior BJP leader Eknath Khadse quitting the party and joining the NCP is important for politics beyond immediate electoral gains or losses in Maharashtra. It has generated a discourse on the future of OBCs in the saffron party in the state. Its the first visible hole in the BJP’s umbrella of social engineering.
Temples’ Religion and Religion’s Temples
The Governor has expressed deep concerns with regards to the continued lockdown of temples, and therefore, according to him “our Gods and Goddesses have been condemned to stay in the lockdown.” This precisely has been the argument of Prabodhankar Thackeray that the Brahminical order has confined the existence of Gods and Goddesses only to the temples, as the temple economy then benefits the most. Religion doesn’t need temples. But temples certainly need religion.
Manu ki Sarkar
If we wish to understand how the Indian men’s minds are filled with filth about women, we need to read Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. The architect of the Indian Constitution had painstakingly pointed out that the misery of women in Indian society is because of the laws of Manu.
Farmers’ Resistance: Nemesis of Modi?
The government’s adamant insistence on the 3 farms bills signals an either-or situation. Either Modi has miscalculated the entire gamble or he wants to pit poor and marginal farmers against the middleclass and rich farmers.
Invisible Hand in Anna Movement
The sequence of events since the Anna Hazare movement suggests a conspiratorial political roadmap.
The dignified life of Swami Agnivesh
Swami Agnivesh was a radical reformer who was a genuine secularist in a saffron robe, and as a result, he bore the brunt of assaults by the saffron brigade. He could have easily joined the saffron political bandwagon by riding the anti-minority, anti-secular tide, but he didn’t. This is a tribute to a fearless and principled man.
