The Fascination With Ram Rajya

The Fascination With Ram Rajya

In his recent speech in a rally at Faizabad, PM Modi stated, “…When people asked Mahatma Gandhi how good governance should be, he would reply in one word, a welfare state should be like Ram Rajya…”.

Prime Minister – Your Replacement By Displacement On Khadi Calendar Does Not Make Sense

Prime Minister – Your Replacement By Displacement On Khadi Calendar Does Not Make Sense

Prime Minister – recently you replaced Gandhi with your own image on the Khadi and Village Calendar. We see this as an attempt at Modi-fication of Gandhi rather than Gandhi-isation of Modi. You seem to be projecting your own image by the act of replacement. In no way you seem to be the kind of person who can replace the[Read More…]

Modi’s New Year Eve Speech: What Comes Next?

Modi’s New Year Eve Speech: What Comes Next?

I read George Orwell’s ‘1984’ in 1985 when I was a 15 year old. Although the ‘Big Brother’ appearing on screens to announce what people should be doing looked like a science fiction in an 80s India, it  made  a nightmarish impact on me, even when I was awake. As a 15 year old I never thought that it could[Read More…]

‘Mitron’ Fact Is Stranger Than Fiction

‘Mitron’ Fact Is Stranger Than Fiction

I discovered a new word: Mitron. It means, ‘A large group of unsuspecting people about to be hit by something they will take a long time to recover from.’ Ironically it comes from the Hindi word – Mitron (Mitr = friend. Mitron = of friends). I believe we are in a Mitron moment; the discovery of a word and an[Read More…]

Narendra Modi, The Machiavellian Prince Of India

Narendra Modi, The Machiavellian Prince Of India

We have a Prime Minister who said that this government is for the Dalits, and the same Prime Minsiter says nothing when Dalits are publicly flogged by the gau rakshaks. Everybody knows on whose side he stands, but with his rhetoric he tries to convince the civilised world that he criticises the vigilantism that targets the Dalits

Modi Says “Shoot”! But Whom?

Modi Says “Shoot”! But Whom?

Narendra Modi’s high octane poll campaign was littered with the promise of Development, with a capital D. Big business, in India and abroad, had bought his promise too.
