Posted on August 14, 2008 | 6 CommentsIs it too early to give a report card on the performance of the UPA non-government for its entire term? I’m not talking about the secularly-certified report cards and approval ratings that the media gives year after year to the UPA. It’s the report card...
Posted on August 1, 2008 | 2 CommentsStung bitterly, Prakash Karat has thundered that he will not support the Congress ever. Prakash Karat has discounted the possibility of the CPM supporting the Congress after the next general elections… Let’s revisit this post after the 2009 Election results are out. Tweet
Posted on July 29, 2008 | 3 CommentsElections in India is fun time because you can mudsling at will and get away with it. That was the case when the Italian bosswoman christened Modi as Maut ka Saudagar (Death Broker). Now that the actual maut ka saudagars have struck in the same...
Posted on July 27, 2008 | 23 CommentsMy Dear Dr. Manmohan Singh, I don’t care if you read much less respond to this. You are after all, another inconsequential pawn who might be remembered by posterity in the same breath as Ambhi , and Jaichand. I’m writing this because it is still...
Posted on July 25, 2008 | 8 CommentsRajdeep Turdesai tries his hand at damage control-by-diversion. His need is urgent for it comes in the wake of widespread suspicions about the intent of a certain media whore of the Congress party to ensure that the UPA won the trust vote. Turdesai climbs atop...
Posted on July 23, 2008 | 6 CommentsThe UPA’s trust vote victory has once again proved why it pays to be cynical. I firmly go by this diktat in watching Indian politics: never underestimate the Congress party’s potential for scurviness. It is an art the party has perfected for a few decades...
Posted on July 17, 2008 | 5 CommentsThe Nuclear non-deal is quickly making the UPA (or whatever is left of it) a nuclear family. The N-deal might well be the costliest blunder for the Congress party, specifically. It badly underestimated the Left, and despite Amar…er.. Mulayam Singh’s reassurances, July 22 will likely...
Posted on July 12, 2008 | 1 CommentForget politics. Media watching promises to be a jolly activity. Rajdeep Sardesai’s fiery journalism leads the charade. CNN-IBN seems to change colours almost every other second. From sounding out the Left in a piece that is shockingly pro-capitalist one day to cozying up to Amar...
Posted on June 25, 2008 | 5 CommentsAbout three years ago, Dilip D’Souza concluded that liberalization had done little to improve India’s economy. I had pointed out that his conclusion was fantastic because it was based on just one train journey and a few anecdotal evidences. Tweet
Posted on June 6, 2008 | 4 CommentsOr how the Congress Party Screwed the Aam Aadmi Cut to 2004 when an euphoric Congress party declared its victory over the dark forces of communalism, rich-centric politics and related evils. It declaimed that its Aam Aadmi slogan had done in the India Shining slogan...
Posted on May 23, 2008 | 12 CommentsRediff describes Ashis Nandy–who has been suitably psychoanalyzed on this blog earlier–in glowing adjectives: thinker, political analyst, but above all, he is India’s most famous liberal thinker, in this five-part interview where Nandy shares his expert views on Sonia Gandhi’s performance as the chairman of...
