What is the Enemy Property Act 1968?

Although the name “Enemy Property Act” sounds a bit ominous, it means all the properties left behind by people who migrated to Pakistan and China forfeit their rights to the properties and these properties should not belong to the government of India. As this Swarajya link explains, the Enemy Property Act, 1968, was enacted by […]

China needs a solid evidence against Masood Azhar, sure

China needs solid evidence against Masood Azhar, sure China says that if India wants China to vote for the ban of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar, it will need to provide some solid evidence. Of course, solid evidence for China would mean an HD video of Masood Azhar blowing up places in India and running amok […]

Is economic liberalization a curse on the poor

The poor have been here since time immemorial and so have been the rich. In the olden times they lived their separate lives unless there was some blatant exploitation. The contemporary problem is that the lives of the poor and the lives of the rich are intertwined. This Scroll article, through the review of a […]

Does FoE mean doing country’s ma-ki-behen-ki with impunity?

Among intellectuals and liberals it has become a fashion to say everything under the sun against the country, the Army, the cultural nuances of the majority community and disparaging festivals and traditions again, of the majority community. These proclivities would have seemed a normal behavioural pattern had they been uniform in their condemnation for the […]

Valentine’s Day and Matri-Pitri-Pujan Divas

Should Indians celebrate Valentine’s Day or not? Should they celebrate Matri-Pitri-Pujan Divas instead? Who should decide what Indians can celebrate and what not? This is an unfortunate dilemma many youngsters get in every year. Orthodox elements of the society think that celebrations like Valentine’s Day are just a conspiracy to impose Western values on our […]

A feminist take on the Rani Padmavati-Bhansali controversy

By now you must be already aware of the attack on film-maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of Rani Padmavati, the movie that he is making on the legendary Rajput queen. The controversy broke when the prospect of some romantic scene between Allauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati began to surface in various newspapers. If […]

India should have a consistent procedure for constitutional posts

The way V. K. Sasikala is about to become the next CM of Tamil Nadu despite the fact that the state already has a CM, is quite alarming. I’m not saying whether she will be good or bad for Tamil Nadu, all I’m saying is, her sudden elevation to the post of CM in one […]

“1984” actually depicts a dystopian leftist world

These days left liberals are feeling very good that more people are buying “1984” especially in the wake of Donald Trump becoming the US President. Although I haven’t yet decided whether I like Donald Trump or dislike him, I have been observing left liberals for many years now and have found that they are a […]

About Muslims being banned from entering the US

I haven’t formed any strong opinion about Muslims from certain countries being banned from entering the US. I’m neither for it not against it because frankly, I haven’t done much reading on this to make a strong opinion. But do observe how heartfelt commentaries are being made about very deserving Muslim people not being able to […]

Making sense of Donald Trump

Some years ago I wrote a blog post titled “Why I support Narendra Modi” and it was read by many. I wrote that post not as a journalist, because I’m not. I wrote that as a layperson — what I felt about him. I wrote about what I found amiss in the country and how I saw […]
