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


Was Jinnah a Secularist?

What we are witnessing is a power-struggle within the centrist-right polity.  What the center-rightist are doing is to move away divisive politics and religion-based narrow constituencies; just like the Republican Party in the United States did with Ronald Reagan.  They have figured out that ultimately people need food, clothes, shelter, jobs, and development within the ambit of religion.  Says Aravind Sitaraman


Cage This "Tiger"


Mansur Ali Khan "Tiger" Pataudi!  This Nawab of the erstwhile Princely State of Pataudi was a revered cricket captain and household name.  He was well-known for all the right reasons; his winning attitude, gentlemanly behavior, old-age charm and also because he was the youngest Indian Cricket captain to-date.  Today, he is again in the news for all the wrong news.
