Congress still playing games with 26/11 tragedy
Inquiry report conceals more than revealing

By Aditya Pradhan

THOUGH the Ram Pradhan Committee report on the terror attacks in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, has become a rallying point for the Opposition parties in Maharashtra to take the government to task, there are some incredibly valid points which could question the lackadaisical attitude of the establishment as well as private star hotels in Mumbai, and some preposterous claims on national security.    more >

Rulers now are managers not leaders
By Dr Jay Dubashi

IT’S all over bar the shouting. They say that a week is a long time in politics, but even a day is enough to change the fate of nations, what to speak of political parties, particularly those who lead a hand-to-mouth existence, as in India. The poll played havoc with them and has sent many of them packing.    more >

Maoists are enemies of the nation. Crush them.

Before talk, ensure Pak acts on terror
By MD Nalapat

FOR decades, India’s attention has been diverted by Pakistan. That country had begun its descent into extremism in the 1970, when the Pakistan army began to be rid of the moderate, largely secular officer corps, and infiltrated by Wahabbis promoted by Zia-ul-Haq.    more >

Some lessons learnt unlearnt
By Dr Shridhar Pant

THE 15th Lok Sabha election is important in many respects. It has taught many lessons for the nation. Most politicians see in it the emergence of the two-party Parliament.

The debate on BJP
By Jatindernath Joshi

AFTER sixty years of freedom, Indian democracy seems to be falling apart. The BJP was once a cadre based party, having the RSS as their friend, philosopher and guide. At that time even a cycle repairer (e.g. Bodh Raj of south Delhi) could become a member of the DMC.    more >

BJP ideology has not failed¬—II
The BJP has to learn from Congress strategy

By Dr Arya K Bhattacharya

THE media manipulation to describe Shri Narendra Modi as a mass murderer while simultaneously painting Shri Rajiv Gandhi as a secular hero has only one parallel in recent human history – the painting of Saddam Hussein as a beast by the Western media followed by the American invasion and capture of Iraq.    more >

The Moving Finger Writes

The changing face of India
By MV Kamath

IT is over sixty years since India became independent and 1947 onwards we have had fifteen national elections. In these sixty odd years the mindset of the people has changed drastically. Ideological concepts have given way to more prosaic ones like caste and creed and people now vote not on issues of merit but whether the candidate belongs to one’s caste.    more >

Blacks and Whites: Can they ever be brothers?
By MSN Menon

NO. Not in a long long while. Look at what is going on in Australia. Australia, like the USA, is a violent country. It was a country of criminal convicts. Is there any wonder in what they are doing today? Then, why do our students go to Australia?    more >

New trends in publishing

MEDIA Critique is a relatively new magazine. It is three years old but is probably the only journal of its kind that is a true critique of the media. Its latest issue has some bad news for journalists. Time was, as the journal writes, when struggle and poverty were synonymous with a journalist’s life. Landlords would refuse to rent out their premises to scribes and what was even worse, “a mediaperson as a prospective son-in-law was ...    more >


On Election 2009
BJP should stick to the time-tested ideology

By Anand Mishra ‘Abhay’

ONE is rather shocked to see that the BJP an all India only nationalist party appears to be demoralised to such an extent that so-called stalwarts are gone berserk. One is writing an article and getting published in an English newspaper having a super deluxe secularist image. The fellow is said to be a culprit of Advani’s Jinnah episode.    more >
