Why every Indian should read "Monsoon" by Robert D Kaplan

12/18/2018
More
In trying to understand what is happening in this crazy crazy world, two things are very important - the place where it happens and the time when it happens. These two questions pretty much give the entire context to the mind of a culture. Take the World War II for example, where and when this event happened answers a lot of questions about how the people of the participating countries think. While we have documented through time, WHAT people thought. Could geographical features explain, in...

Election aftermath: Here's why we need Rajini's spiritual politics more than ever

12/13/2018

To the shock of many world-class entitled political commentators on social media, BJP has been kicked out of three states where they ruled. MP has been lost after 13 years, Chattisgarh after 15 and Rajasthan is in the usual cyclic churn. Is Modi wave dead? Is 2019 looking bleak for the mighty Amit Shah-Modi combine? The so-called "core RW twitter" is in a state of panic. They want their demands to be met right away, else they won't be voting for BJP in 2019. Boo hoo. Cry us a river,...

India and China - Friends or Foes?

11/9/2018
More
The world is on its way in becoming a multi polar world order and if there's one country that is already leading this idea, it's China. But what do we Indians immediately think about our massive neighbor? Are we friends or enemies? Currently if you are following the media, China is our no. 2 enemy right after Pakistan. And it is possibly true as well, with so many moves aimed at bullying India on the world stage. However as always, context reveals information that we were previously blind...

Tamil Nadu - How did our politics get here?

11/8/2018
More
Tamil Nadu - Only when we started digging its political history did we find that the state’s name didn’t exist before 1969. Armed with such ignorance, we take a journey into the history of politics in Tamil Nadu to see where we have come from. Because if you look at where we are right now, amidst all this circus and gymnastics, it is hard to understand what’s happening and even harder to trust our leaders, as the two major leaders who have been playing musical chair with the CM post passed...

Supreme Court vs Dharma Sastha - Who will win?

10/23/2018
More
The Kerala Communist Government which has a habit of disobeying the Supreme Court this time felt compelled to readily act on a recent judgement on the Sabarimala temple, which allowed women of all ages to enter its sacred premises. Just a day after the judgement, women all over Kerala protested and said they are #readytowait and said none of the actual devotees will go. These protests, which were actually huge, were completely ignored by the same media which happily went up to Sabarimalai...

Putin's visit to India - a new multipolar world in the making?

10/14/2018
More
Russian President Vladimir Putin recently came to India to sign a bunch of deals. Most importantly, a deal for the sale of a anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense system called the S-400 and secondly, six new nuclear plants in the country. Ever since Russia invaded Crimea, the US has been sanctioning the country and everyone associated with it, so India too received a warning. But still, we went ahead with these deals, because of course, we needed it. We'll be defying the US-Iran sanctions...

Is our Supreme Court contradicting itself?

10/2/2018
More
Before leaving his job, CJI Dipak Misra decided he will be presiding over judgements for a slew of cases! In one of them, the Section 497 of the Indian constitution has been termed to be in contradictory with the right to equality of gender. While that is a welcome judgement which will bring us to the modern era, there seems to be a sinister move by the media to paint it as a celebration of adultery. In the case above, the court is right in saying it has no business in an individual's...
