India is exactly like a Hindu wedding
By Dr Jay Dubashi

I spent a week recently attending a wedding in Karnataka. Hindu weddings are chaotic affairs, going on and on for days on end, and you sit there in a corner watching the goings and comings as your cousins, whom you have not seen for years, fall flat at your feet, and there is so much noise you can hardly hear yourself breathe.    more >

UPA is corrupt, all politicians are not
Anna Hazare's war on corruption

IT’S dangerous to generalise corruption. All Indians are not corrupt.

A thousand motivated men and women – the Jantar Mantar crowd at no point was larger than that – cannot bring a revolution unless the people are so desperate, in a vast country like India. Nor has the country got so fed up with democracy.    more >

Tamil Nadu Politics-III
Church fabricated the Tamil literature

By Radha Rajan

THE notion of Tamil People had already been sowed by the Church both in India and in Sri Lanka and had taken root. The Church’s most promising offspring, the violence-prone DMK had been well groomed as the vehicle for Tamil People/Tamil Nation in India; it was time to deliver a similar creature in Sri Lanka and the emergence of MG Ramachandran in Tamil Nadu provided the perfect backdrop to unveil the Sri Lankan chapter of the Tamil Nation.    more >

By Dr Jitendra Kumar Sharma

WHILE the BJP, according to Sushma Swaraj, has tasked Arun Jaitley “to collect facts on Robert Vadra’s rise” and to CPM leader Sitaram Yechury, “It looks like a serious matter” and deserves “a structured reaction”, to the common people, especially, the senior citizens, it is an open secret.    more >

Godhra carnage and pseudo-secularists: An analysis
By Manmath Deshpande

THE verdict on Godhra train burning that convicted 31 people has seen muted reactions from the Congress Party and the media. But to understand the entire pseudo-secular reactions on Godhra right since February 27, 2002, one must go back to 2002. An analysis of "Pseudo-secularists on Godhra" will reveal all the problems of our self-proclaimed secularists not just on Godhra, but on all issues.    more >

Lets celebrate the victory but not go overboard (Organiser, 17.4.2011);
—MAHESH CHANDRA SHARMA, E-198, Panki, Kanpur

It has been rightly said in the editorial that, “The UPA government is trying to use cricket mania as opium on the masses.” Is it justified to divert the money allotted for development and education to be distributed to Dhoni and his team members as awards for winning the World Cup?    more >
