  • Why I'm Losing Hope In India
    Andy Mukherjee | Bloomberg
    Call it buyers' remorse. Those of us who thought that muscular leadership would revive India's dream of mimicking Chinese-style double-digit expansion are not just disappointed. For many of my generation, our long-cherished hope for a better, greater India is all but gone. We wanted to trade some of our democratic chaos for a little bit more growth. We ended up with l...

  • Now Showing, The Bigg Boss Of Hyderabad
    Uma Sudhir
    If you thought Hyderabad is hosting the political version of "Bigg Boss", I won't fault you. When it comes to threats, vitriol and taunts, the campaign for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) election is giving the popular reality show a run for its money.

  • BJP's Giant Hyderabad Move - Why Now, Why So Big
    Swati Chaturvedi
    No election is too small to ignore. Not for the Modi-Shah version of the BJP. Each election is a chance to test, create or edge out allies. And to expand, expand, expand.

  • The Centre Miscalculated Farmer Rage And Frustration
    K.C. Singh
    Farmers' protests over the hurriedly passed Farm Bills in the Lok Sabha's monsoon session have been brewing since September. The union government made half-hearted attempts to engage their leaders, failing initially when farmers' representatives objected to being received by bureaucrats and not the concerned minister. The distrust level worsened after the Akali Dal's ...

  • Why Sonia Gandhi And Ahmed Patel Were The Perfect Team - by Vir Sanghvi
    Vir Sanghvi
    I have no idea how Patel felt about any of this because he was too discreet to say a word. But till the end, he remained by Sonia's side, low-key and loyal. Like the rest of us, he probably had no idea where the Congress is headed.

  • Ahmed <I>Bhai</I>, A Politician's Politician
    Swati Chaturvedi
    Patel was the last of the old-school leaders of the Congress - a big heart and broad shoulders which shrugged off minor issues but could tangle - or un-knot, as needed - complicated political threads. Patel was a "politician's politician" with a huge network of relationships across party lines, corporates and the media. A consummate back-room strategist, he knew both ...

  • Sonia's Holding Operation For Rahul Now In Shambles
    Swati Chaturvedi
    The Congress dissenters have not asked the Gandhis to relinquish organisational/party roles - yet. But, after the loss in two general elections and serial defeats in state elections (most recently, the disastrous run in Bihar), it has come down to this - when, not if.

  • There Will Be A Price To Pay For Making Vaccines Too Expensive
    Stephanie Baker, Bloomberg
    The world is unequal enough and the Covid-19 pandemic threatens to make things more unequal still. Poorer countries have had to take on debt they will struggle to pay back. Their more fragile healthcare systems and crowded cities forced them into stricter and more economically harmful lockdowns, and poverty rates have risen dramatically. Now, they rightly fear a stagg...

  • Tycoon-Led Banks Could Be Dangerous For India
    Andy Mukherjee | Bloomberg
    From the conditional nature of the recommendation, it doesn't appear that the regulator will soon reverse its policy of keeping conglomerates away from banking. But the report could pave the way for backdoor entry.

  • Daily Texts For First Week For Those Who Get Pfizer Vaccine
    Therese Raphael, Bloomberg
    Regulatory authorities are gearing up for a deluge in people reporting side effects when the new covid-19 vaccines go into use. Even as vaccines like the one from Pfizer and BioNTech reach safety milestones and look set for regulatory approval, managing the reporting and follow-up of what are known as adverse drug reactions will be critical to keeping to the high leve...

  • She Fought For Life With A Might That Left Us Breathless
    Suparna Singh
    In 2014, I took a chance on making friends with an unknown quantity. It meant turning my back on my usual reserve. Nothing much to it, as it turned out - her smile, you see, could colonise an entire island of reserve in a second.
