Will this girl be able to ever give a Nobel Peace prize address? The answer is, of course...never Because she does not fit into the model of how the west wants to see a rebel in the lands 'liberated' - compliant, gushing about the 'freedom' of the Western world, crying for their brethren in their own 'oppressed' countries... In short, anyone who can be used to salve their own consciousness And she wrote a final entry a couple of years back.. And one of the most compelling voices of our times has fallen silent..(image)

The irrepressible French, as usual, have an saying for this – “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”, or as it is more popularly known – “the more it changes, the more it’s the same thing”. As the world’s apathy is being tested to the limit by the Israeli Army, as it continues its […](image)

  Its funny how when theory is translated into personal behavior, it suddenly makes complete sense The cliché marketing adage of "Adapt or Perish", adorning multiple HBR articles, always seemed like what Indian MBA students will learn as rote to pass tomorrow’s exam. It does not leave too much of an impact because, intuitively, we […](image)

  The first time I saw this ad, I swore to myself that this must be some kind of a parody – that this cannot be Rajesh Khanna. I mean how can it be? It sounds like Rajesh Khanna and talks like Rajesh Khanna and the ‘Babumoshai’ drawl seemed unmistakable. But surely this is not […](image)

Bengalis are a passionate lot. And much of the passion is usually a highly heightened emotional state. Take the case of Pune Warriors in the ongoing IPL-5 as an example. At a time when much of the country is showing genuine fatigue with IPL and perhaps even with the game, or atleast with the surfeit […](image)

Am not a political pundit but thereis one thing that I found heartening about the state elections just concluded. The electorate are now repeatedly remindingthe politicians that they are unimpressed by histrionics and are immuneto the divisive politics of communalism and caste politics. And there isthe Anna effect – corruption is now big factor. Starting […](image)

In the Sporting universe, yesterday was a day of extremes in a nation usually given to mono-sports mania. Its funny how sometimes, events in a day seems so full of meaning…almost as if the gods are making an emphatic point, almost to the point of a thrusting a finger on our forehead… Cricket in India […](image)

Kolkata is always a fascinating case. The muse of poets, revolutionaries and poverty tourists, Kolkata has always been a place where the old French adage of – “The more things change, the more they remain the same” seemed like a way of life. A world-record breaking 30 year long democratic communist rule, Kolkata always seemed […](image)

There is a lot of gloom and doom on every channel these days. From each continent tales and images of discontent and protests and resistance. A world economy that since 1970’s has been built on a whiff of air and a bit of hash is going down the drain. An indebted world is printing cash […](image)
