Mahatma Gandhi would have resorted to satyagraha against pubs
By Justice (Retd) Dr M Rama Jois

THE recent physical and spoken assault on women going to pubs in Mangalore by those calling themselves Sri Ram Sainiks has been highly unjust and indecent and has very rightly come in for severe condemnations far and wide in the country. This is the evidence of sanctity attached to womanhood and the highest esteem in which the women are held in Bharatiya culture.    more >

Think it Over

By MSN Menon
By MSN Menon

ANY attempt at representation of God is as futile as efforts to picture an electron. The electron is inconceivable. So is God. People of the Semitic faiths says that man was made in the image of God. The Hindus believe in a God without form and with form. Both Saguna (with form) and Nirguna (without form) are, however, equal in the eyes of the Hindus. To those who says that God cannot have a form, Vivekananda has a question: who is it that has taken all the forms that exist?   more >

Hilarious pub-editorials and pop culture

THIS journalist who has been around in the media world for some sixty-five years must confess that he has read nothing more hilarious than some of the editorials in the English language press over the pub incident in Mangalore. It merely shows how ignorant the media is about the traumatic changes that have been taking place in Indian society in just about the last one decade and how people are striving to come to terms with them.    more >
