Vol. LX, No. 49, New Delhi, June 14, 2009

Government sleeps as
Country protests Oz racist brutes

By Prof Prasanna Deshpande

WILL anyone believe the Australian ambassador’s version of the mindless attacks on Indian students in Australia that those attacks were an act of burglars trying to rob off the Indian students and not racist attacks? The envoy only tried to soften the gravity and brutality of the matter. more >

ABVP, BJYM lead India's protest

Thinking Aloud
Difference between Indian government and US
By Dr Jay Dubashi

IT is good that Dr. Manmohan Singh has begun his second innings with a promise to focus on education and infrastructure. The ruling party has at last identified these as powerful engines of growth and promised increased public spending to propel investment in these areas. The PM has chosen two of his relatively brighter cabinet ministers to handle these areas. more >

Ideology versus good governance
By Dr Gautam Sen

TOO many commentators supposedly sympathetic to the BJP are evidently suffering over-exposure to NDTV. They are unthinkingly repeating the refrain of the breathless young fillies and deodorant salesmen, masquerading as anchors, who are captivated by page three fantasies of unrestrained inter-religious dalliance and other intolerable drivel. more >

Sick of Marxist doublespeak people of W. Bengal voted for TMC
By Asim Kumar Mitra

THE people of West Bengal have given a conclusive kick to the CPI(M) and its allies during the recent Lok Sabha polls, which they deserved much earlier than now. But the vehemence of that kick has been so strong that they have been still in a fix to find out the actual reason for it. more >

Tagore’s Spiritual Heritage

By Mithun Dey

IN his book Sadhana, Rabindranath Tagore relates an experience of meeting two Hindu ascetics. He asks them why they do not go out into the world to preach the sacred word. One of the ascetics replies, “Whoever feels thirsty will of himself come to the river. more >

The saga of Sarada Script

The majority, minority debate
By BP Mishra

INDIA is a Hindu majority state or minority state may be a matter of difference in opinion because there are so many sects quite different from each other in their rites, philosophy, and rituals. more >

A law to make legislators accountable
By Madhu Deolekar, ex-MLC

DEMOCRACY, in the ultimate analysis, means, ‘self-rule’. That is why, the democratic form of government is preferred to any other form of governments such as monarchy or dictatorship. more >

The Moving Finger Writes

A Mahatma for the aggrieved
By M.V. Kamath

WITH the take-over of all the northern and other Tamil-majority areas of Sri Lanka and the killing of Prabhakaran by the Rajapaksa government, one gory chapter in the history of the island has come to an ignoble end. more >

Think It Over

Can Buddhism become the universal religion?
By MSN Menon

YES, it can. In fact, it is the only religion that has the potential to become one. All religions were tribal in origin. They carry the tribal stamp even today. Which is why they are not acceptable as universal religions. How can I, a member of the Hindu civilisation, the greatest in the world, give it up for the tribal religions of the Middle East? more >

Lecturing BJP
By Ravi Shanker Kapoor

FORMER US President John F Kennedy once said, “Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan.” But this famous quote does not hold well in the peculiar circumstances occasioned by the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) rout in general elections: more >


India as a global leader

BJP has a bright future
By Chaudhary Sandeep Datta
