How Krishna Vattam won the war against cancerchurumurivattam

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 12:23:58 +0000

Journalists see plenty of disease, despair and death in the line of duty. Even if we do not entertain prospects of immortality, our near-constant exposure to the dark and grim side of life somewhat inures us to its only certainty. But what when it hits home? Krishna Vattam, for 40 years the Mysore correspondent of […](image)

How Bangalore looks from up above. British professional adventurer James L. Kingston climbs up a crane to come up with dramatic pictures of a city which, increasingly, doesn’t quite look like this from down below.

What Master Murty should tell Narayana Murthychurumuri

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 12:25:16 +0000

Vinaashakaale vipareetha buddhi pretty much explains the decision of the Sikkapatte Important Company of Karnataka to send out legal notices to three newspapers, seeking legal damages of Rs 2,000 crore (that is a little less than a third of Nandan Nilekani‘s net declared wealth of Rs 7,700 crore), “for loss of reputation and goodwill due […](image)

Tue, 03 Jun 2014 13:05:08 +0000

To the eternal mortification of the naysayers, Narendra Damodardas Modi has won an admirable election for the BJP and is now firmly installed as the 15th prime minister of India. As an example of one man single-mindedly pursuing his goal and achieving it against a mountain of opposition this is success nonpareil. churumuri is happy […](image)

Why South Indians are different from ‘Punjabis’churumuri

Sat, 10 May 2014 09:09:31 +0000

The differences in the mindset of South Indians and North Indians has been the object of much fascination and in no small measure, pride and envy. The stereotype of the rough, rugged, aggressive, foul-mouthed, back-stabbing, money-minded, itching-for-a-fight “Punjabi/Bhaiyya/Bihari” stands in stark contrast to the soft, docile, introverted, passive, friendly “Madrasi”. The reasons usually trotted out […](image)

K. JAVEED NAYEEM writes: The recent judgement of our apex court striking down the appeal of our State government to make primary education in the mother-tongue compulsory has attracted both flak and appreciation from citizens’ groups and citizens depending on which side of the fence they stand. What we should understand here is that the […](image)

Election time is one of most exhilarating periods in the life of the less-than-aam aadmi, when politicians (and the media) suddenly descend on earth, files move, officials respond, there is food on the table, water in the taps and a freebie around the corner. After the election—and till the next one—it is another story, which […](image)

As the words I, me and myself trip off the ads, lips and trolls of the man who thinks he will rule India soon, a sobering blast from the past. This, here, in his own hand, is a plaque commemorating Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar‘s note to his subjects upon completion of 25 years as the maharaja […](image)

The 2014 election campaign saw Karnataka taking some giant steps towards emulating the cinema-obsessed politics of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, with film actors (and actresses) of varying waist (and goggle) sizes turning up to campaign for political parties and candidates; some officially, many not. Sadly, reality just kicked in. The stars were only for […](image)

CHURUMURI POLL: Who’s ahead in Karnataka?churumuri

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:17:14 +0000

From a Karnataka perspective, the 2014 Lok Sabha election has been a roller-coaster ride. After the Congress’s thumping return to power in the 2013 assembly elections, the party believed it would repeat its showing in the general elections, thus making up for what is certain to be a serious rout in the Seemandhra region, following […](image)

The Congress candidate for the Davanagere Lok Sabha constituency, S.S.

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 12:41:35 +0000

The relationship between politicians and journalists is usually an after-dark activity in India, with neither participant ready or willing to put the other’s involvement on the record. Wise heads in politics will counsel newcomers against getting too close to journalists, because, well, you never know when the snake could discover its fangs. Grey beards in […](image)

Khushwant Singh dies 24 years after his obituarychurumuribhagat

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 08:09:37 +0000

Khushwant Singh, the self-proclaimed “dirty old man of Indian journalism”, has passed away at the age of 99. Exactly, 30 years ago, when Singh was 69, the journalist Dhiren Bhagat wrote a pre-obituary of the “sardar in the light bulb” for the now-defunct Sunday Observer. Ironically, Dhiren Bhagat was to predecease Singh by 24 years, […](image)

One question I’m dying to ask Nandan Nilekanichurumuri

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 12:37:48 +0000

Like Arvind Kejriwal overshadowed Anna Hazare leaving the old man suitably stumped and stupefied, Infosys co-founder Nandan Nilekani has taken a giant leap into electoral politics that should leave his former colleague, N.R. Narayana Murthy, moaning in his majjige-huli. By joining the Congress a day after he was named the party’s candidate from Bangalore South, […](image)
