  Smoking Out Smoking

Smokers in India are a menace. Apart from the rare one who take his trash with him, most Indian smokers trash the place around them. With the absence of such comprehensive measures, the Union Minister's noble goal of controlling smoking and improving the health of the nation will go nowhere says Aravind Sitaraman

  Burying the Howitzer?

Indian politicians seem to forget that there is a difference between politics and governance; enemy and political rivalry; those who serve for political power and those who serve the nation in the bureaucracy, services, security, investigative agencies, and police. One cannot ask for a sea change in attitude of politicians overnight but can we at least norm as a nation in how we behave and work with each other? asks Aravind Sitaraman

Editorials & Opinion

  Was Jinnah a Secularist?

The Jataka tales has an interesting story of blind men feeling different parts of an elephant and arguing that what they feel is what they say. As an old Tamil saying says that "what you see may not be the truth; what you hear may not be the truth; what you conclude by sheer logical reasoning is the truth." In an environment where most people are either blind, trained to be blind, want to believe in being blind, and where being blind is fashionable, the perspectives that we see are many while the bigger point is lost.
