S Dasgupta: A truth nobody will ever admit

Sat, 04 Jul 2009 19:16:03 GMT

The long campaign for a grand Ram temple on the site of the 16th century Babri Masjid in Ayodhya was, at a very basic level, an issue of faith.

M J Akbar: Does justice matter after 17 years?

Sat, 04 Jul 2009 19:29:37 GMT

Democracy is a volatile game played in the open. What was there left to inquire into?

Santosh Desai: Accelerating change: No easy way out

Mon, 22 Jun 2009 02:40:36 GMT

Change will not occur with the speed and thoroughness that is deemed ideal unless we accelerate the process through forceful and specific interventions.

M J Akbar: Next time, the volcano

Sat, 20 Jun 2009 19:17:43 GMT

The Left emerged out of the chaos and violence that fractured Bengal; as it dissipates, will the vacuum be filled by violence? It is tempting to see the immediate future as a mirror image, with variations, of the 1960s.

S A Aiyar: Killing me softly with your beedis

Sat, 20 Jun 2009 19:06:21 GMT

Why have finance ministers over the years not done this? Because the beedi is the poor man's smoke, and the beedi industry employs millions. Yet, these are horrifying, cruel reasons for tax concessions for proven killers.

S Dasgupta: Why the twitter-bugs can't change Iran's regime

Sat, 20 Jun 2009 19:11:14 GMT

It is possible the angry young men and well-dressed women in Victoria Beckham sunglasses in Tehran - the only place where Mousavi outpolled Ahmadinejad - have different ideas.

Vinita Nangia: When did you last really look?

Sat, 20 Jun 2009 20:37:00 GMT

God they say is in the detail and he who has mastered the art of focusing on the minutest details, has mastered the art of blocking out the unpleasant...

MJ Akbar: The US advice on Kashmir is lunacy

Sat, 13 Jun 2009 19:08:08 GMT

There is nothing particularly new about the proposal of an interim balm for the wounds of Kashmir, demilitarization on both sides of the Line of Control. What is novel is the heavy Washington endorsement of this Pakistan-promoted option.

Shobha De: Why Sheetal and Kalavati are women on top

Sat, 13 Jun 2009 18:54:26 GMT

Both ladies are media savvy — they have perfected their sound bites. Their lives are not all that dissimilar — they make headlines for the wrong reasons.

SA Aiyar: An open letter to Kapil Sibal

Sat, 13 Jun 2009 19:01:03 GMT

Kapil Sibal, your new government is committed to affirmative action for the historically disadvantaged. This can be an excellent launching pad for school vouchers.

S A Aiyar: India is now flooded with $1 billion per week

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 19:00:01 GMT

After six months of financial drought, global money is flooding into India at the rate of $1 billion a week. If sustained, this will be the mother of all financial stimuli, eclipsing the finance minister's budgetary endeavours.

Swapan Dasgupta: Don't tar all of Australia as racist

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 19:04:58 GMT

The feeling of cultural superiority that coexisted with the exercise of power in the pre-World War II era has yielded place to a new moral relativism.

M J Akbar: Some dangerous liaisons in July

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 18:55:48 GMT

India is ready to accept this reality. Pakistan might need persuasion. It has to be told that there is nothing to be gained by the complications of discussion, and everything to achieve through clarity.

Vinita Nangia: O-zone: Dear Betty

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 19:53:22 GMT

As Archie Andrews gears up to propose to Veronica Lodge, here is a heartfelt letter to Betty Cooper...

Bobilli Vijay Kumar: Federer awaits tryst with destiny

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 19:57:33 GMT

Federer, probably nudged by his own providence, sensed his opportunity: he woke up from his sleepwalk and began playing like himself again; inside-out forehands, down the line backhands and tantalising, though desperate, drop-shots.

Vinita Nangia: O-zone: Out damn'd spot! Out, I say!

Sun, 17 May 2009 03:10:14 GMT

Advani’s early morning call, umpteen messages from unknown senders urging you to vote and the fear of being labelled a Pappu, was enough to send many to the electoral booth...

Bobilli Vijay Kumar: Weary India might lose it in the mind

Sat, 30 May 2009 20:13:53 GMT

If the second edition of the T20 World Cup was held on paper, India would win it without bowling a single ball or even lifting the bat.

S A Aiyar: US protectionism may help India

Sat, 30 May 2009 19:02:24 GMT

The Obama law will affect their operations in all foreign countries, so it provides no incentive to shift jobs from India to other Third World competitors.

M J Akbar: Will India ever have a Muslim Code Bill?

Sat, 30 May 2009 19:13:40 GMT

If Mahatma Gandhi is the Father of the Nation then Jawaharlal Nehru is the Father of the Modern Nation, for the alchemy of India's transformation into modern India can be sourced to the passage of the Hindu Code Bill.

Shobhaa De: Enough politics, time to get down to serious work

Sat, 30 May 2009 19:10:37 GMT

By results, the reference is to just one thing - quality of life. The voter wants to know exactly what this government will do for him/her, in real terms. No more bhashans, no empty promises, no fake assurances.
