The dirty politics of natural gas
UPA compromises public interest to enhance corporate loot

By Naresh Minocha

THE UPA Government has reduced itself to a pendulum that swings between free market and administered market. It has thus pushed the investors and the economy into fathomless uncertainty and the aam aadmi into a perpetual spin.    more >

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat terms
Sharm el-Sheikh a diplomatic faux pas

By Virag Pachpore

"INCLUSION of the reference to Balochistan and dropping of action against terrorism as a precondition to resuming the dialogue with Pakistan was a serious blunder. It exposed the chinks in diplomacy of Government of India. This has not only brought the issue of happenings in Balochistan to the notice of the global community, but has also created a confusion within the country vis-à-vis our foreign policy and transparency therein.”    more >

INSTALLATION of statues and naming of public utilities and establishments after politicians have a long and controversial history in India.

Dismantle patent laws for true Independence

By Dr Bharat Jhunjhunwala

OUR freedom Fighters would have thought that after Independence the country will soon regain the international stature that it enjoyed previously.

Cow, the pivot of rural economy
By Vaidya Kulamarva Jayakrishna

THIS is the right time to discuss the issue of cow protection. We have to think what our learned ancestors would have done when faced with such a situation or problem? Our seers and learned philosophers had a different approach when faced with major problems i.e. they used to put both their heart and brains together to arrive at a solution.    more >

Anti-Hindu channels and MNC honchos
By Dr Jay Dubashi

I normally avoid news channels in English and try to stick to Hindi as much as possible. English channels are generally supercilious and affect a tone that many must find insulting. Their accents, picked up in so-called, ‘convent’ schools, jar on the ear.    more >


No human rights for Hindus even in Hindustan!
By Dr Pravin Togadia

A bizarre visual made waves on most TV channels 2-3 years back. It was shown for some time and then suddenly it was taken off from almost all TV channels as if was managed to be taken off.    more >
