Time to make our North East friends feel secured

I remember as a child, I would stretch my eyelids to look “Chinese, Japanese or Nepalese”. At that young age, anyone with 'chinky eyes', small eyes, broad nose, straight hair, was Chinese, no matter which part of Northeast India, or for that matter, Southeast Asia, he came from. I would babble few words like ching, chong, chinnabadam… with my friends while playing house house. Since I was the youngest in the group, I would be asked by them to pose as a Chinese from the enemy side, while they…See More

Is satyamev jayete making a difference?

It’s been more than three weeks since Aamir Khan’s show ‘Satyemeva Jayete’ has been aired in both doordarshan and star plus on Sundays. Each episode talks of some of the burning issues that plague the country. From the first episode itself, the show has managed to hook its viewers. While the first three episodes concentrated on female feoticide, child abuse and dowry, the last episode highlighted the corrupt health care system in India. It spoke of the malpractices in the so-called noble…See More

UPA government's report card

The UPA government led by the Congress just completed three years in office. And in expected lines, in the 'Report to the People,' the government has expressed its satisfaction and boasts of achievements in various sectors especially education. It has highlighted achievements like creation of five lakh classrooms, providing 10.52 crore people with mid-day meal and firming up plans to extend IT infrastructure to 4752 schools. The report also mentions the launch of low cost computing device…See More

Regional parties gain is national parties’ loss!

The much awaited Assembly election results are out.  A close look at the results clearly indicates the rising dominance of regional parties in India.  In Uttar Pradesh (UP), the most populous state of India, Samajwadi Party (SP), primarily a regional party is set to form the government ousting another regionally dominated party Bahujan Samajwadi(BSP). The national parties Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Indian National Congress (INC) are placed third and fourth respectively in the state.…See More

Hanna McLean commented on Pratigyan Das's blog post Slap Biz politics: What's the future?
"I agree with you Pratigyan, it is indeed time that people think twice before electing their leader so that they don't find the need to slap them later on in public. On the other hand, the fact that this person felt the need to physically…"

Slap Biz politics: What's the future?

When a commoner named Harvinder Singh slapped Union Agriculture minister and a seasoned politician Sharad Pawar, as he was returning from a public function on the 24th of November 2011, the nation glued to their television sets shockingly as most of the electronic channels played the shot again and again. Mind you this was the third such attack in recent weeks. Few days back, Prasant Bhusan, a member of team Anna and a noted lawyer was beaten by an unknown person for his alleged comments on…See More

The great Indian middle class arrives- Is that enough

An article 'Protests awaken a Goliath in India' in the New York Times feels that the great Indian middle class which till recently were dismissed as apathetic towards electoral politics seems to have awakened from their slumbers and no longer appears  apathetic towards politics. The article goes on to attribute this change of attitude to the Anna Hazare movement.Indeed, the Anna Hazare movement which later became 'I am Anna' movement' saw thousands of professionals, college students, house…See More
