    What Critics Miss When Jeering Rahul Gandhi As Congress Boss

    It is all very well to say that inner party democracy demands an alternative choice, but the eternal question remains: who is going to bell the cat?

  • Mani Shankar Aiyar On Ram Madhav's Offer Of Dialogue To Kashmir

    Mani Shankar Aiyar On Ram Madhav's Offer Of Dialogue To Kashmir

    By sheer coincidence, I happened to arrive in Srinagar on a private visit on the very day, September 22, when Ram Madhav was quoted by Ashiq Hussain, the Srinagar correspondent of The Hindustan Times, as having said in the J&K capital, "We are open to dialogue".

  • On Congress Leaders And Their Travel, Amit Shah Knows Nothing

    On Congress Leaders And Their Travel, Amit Shah Knows Nothing

    Of the many cretinous remarks that have escaped the lips of Amit Shah's bearded visage, perhaps the most unlettered was his statement last week that the Congress only undertook yatras when they carried the ashes of their dead leaders around the country.

  • Dear Smriti Irani, RG Showed Courage In Critiquing His Mother

    Dear Smriti Irani, RG Showed Courage In Critiquing His Mother

    Smriti Irani is the Master (or is it "Mistress"?) of the Trivial. Her rebuttal of Rahul Gandhi's speech and Q&A at Berkeley was confined to personal abuse (of the person who had thrashed her in the last elections) and jibes at a handful of phrases used by RG, while completely bypassing the substance of what he had to say at the University.

  • Mani Shankar Aiyar On Ram Rahim's Blockbuster Appeal

  • Amit Shah Forces Shotgun Wedding For EPS, OPS

    Amit Shah Forces Shotgun Wedding For EPS, OPS

    The factions have been sternly told to get together, failing which their remaining four years in office would be in jeopardy of yielding to President's Rule. Fearing the ballot-box even more than fearing Amit Shah, EPS and OPS have agreed to say, "I do" even if their principal bone of contention - ridding the party of Sasikala - remains open on the...

  • Mani Shankar Aiyar Reviews PM Modi's Aug 15 Speech

    Mani Shankar Aiyar Reviews PM Modi's Aug 15 Speech

    Words, words, words. And yet more words. For the last three years, the nation has had to sit through a cataract of alliterations and acronyms flowing from the ramparts of the Red Fort to end up misinformed, misled and misdirected by a cocktail of evasions, half-truths and white lies. This Independence Day has been no different.

  • Amit Shah Beaten By The Congress' Own Chanakya

    Amit Shah Beaten By The Congress' Own Chanakya

    This time he was upstaged by the Congress party's own Chankaya who understood Shah's underhand manipulations and deployed his own deep understanding of Gujarat's politics to keep one step ahead.

  • Bhutan Stands By India, But Modi Is Weakening It

    Bhutan Stands By India, But Modi Is Weakening It

  • Modi Has Squandered Goodwill He Won In Nepal

    Modi Has Squandered Goodwill He Won In Nepal

    These opinions ranged, at one end of the spectrum, from the Rashtriya Janata Party-Nepal (RJP-N), a recently formed conglomerate of the numerous disgruntled Terai parties, to the Communist Party of Nepal (United Marxist-Leninist) or UML at the other end, with the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist Centre) falling in between while tilting to the Left,...

  • Reading Modi's Many, Fervent Hugs For Netanyahu

    Reading Modi's Many, Fervent Hugs For Netanyahu

    Can Israel be de-hyphenated from Palestine any more than Modi 2002 can be de-hyphenated from Modi 2017? The question is germane because even as Modi and his apologists try to distance Modi in domestic policy from the pogrom over which he loomed in Gujarat, so do Modi and his cohort try in foreign policy to project an Israel that is unrelated to the...

  • Open Letter From Mani Shankar Aiyar To Swapan Dasgupta

    Open Letter From Mani Shankar Aiyar To Swapan Dasgupta

    You justify the spate of lynching we have been witnessing since the brutal killing of Mohammad Akhlaque two years ago by claiming, "There is a streak of underlying violence in India's public culture", adding, "India remains a violent place". Shhh! Don't let Modi hear that for he told his Sabarmati audience on 29 June, "We are a land of non-violence...

  • Rajinikanth Unlikely As A BJP Star

    Rajinikanth Unlikely As A BJP Star

    Will he, won't he? Like teenagers seeking to divine their romantic prospects, Tamil Nadu (and much of the country) is plucking petals from the daisy to answer their anxious question. But, should Rajinikanth eventually decide to come in, would that be such a game-changer?

    Modi's <i>Maun Vrat</i> On Farmers' Crisis Says Much

    We need nothing less than a revolution in the Indian political mind-set that will respond as we used to do in the four decades from Nehru to Rajiv: "Everything can wait, but not agriculture". We are stoking the death of our democracy by failing to do so.

  • When Army Chief Says He Wishes Kashmiris Were Firing At His Men

    When Army Chief Says He Wishes Kashmiris Were Firing At His Men

    Of course, we must respect our men in uniform. Of course, we must stand by them when they lay down their lives for the nation. But is this a "war-like" situation, as Arun Jaitley describes it? Or is it a street confrontation with stone-pelters and five-year old kids who kick at soldiers as they do at their own parents to vent their child-like anger...

    AIADMK Could Split Into 4 Factions; What To Expect

    The Amma soap opera continues. For a while, I thought I had gone wrong in thinking the Edappadi Palaniswami (EPS) government could not last and that the end must come later if not sooner. Now, it would seem the end is likely sooner than later.

    What TV Channels Got Wrong About My Meeting Pak's Kasuri

    I find myself flayed on certain (happily, not all) TV channels for escorting a virtually life-long friend (who has attended all the weddings in my family, and with whom I routinely stay in Lahore) at a time when, to the deep concern of all of us, including Khurshid, sentence has been pronounced on Kulbhushan Jadhav

  • Why Vajpayee Would Never Pick Adityanath

    Why Vajpayee Would Never Pick Adityanath

    Would Atal Bihari Vajpayee have appointed Yogi Adityanath as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh? Asking such a question is not a mindless exploration of the "Ifs" of history, but one way of assessing where we stand today in relation to the evolution of the Hindutva right in the shaping of our polity.

  • Why Congress Feels No Need To Sack The Gandhis

    Why Congress Feels No Need To Sack The Gandhis

    Above all, the party President must be - and seen to be - elected. Rahul is on record as personally favouring endorsement by the party over right by birth to lead the party. His problem, as indicated earlier, will be to find an opponent - like Lee Kwan Yew, he may be forced to nominate his opposition! But the post needs to be transparently seen as ...
