  • LOCKING UP IMMIGRANT CHILDREN IS NOW A BILLION-DOLLAR INDUSTRY IN U.S.    (19-07-2018)
    Detaining immigrant children has morphed into a surging industry in the United States that now reaps $1 billion annually—a tenfold increase over the past decade, an Associated Press analysis finds.
  • IN SABARIMALA IT’S FAITH VERSUS BELIEF    (19-07-2018)
    Even the most careless and dated ones among us know that the world and the word have been reduced to a bunch of hashtags. But it is like the Universe. Ever-expanding. From #TalkToAMuslim to #RightToPray. It goes on and on with gay abandon though ‘gay abandon’ is also dated. #TalkToAMuslim surfaced two days ago. #RightToPray was in the Supreme Court after years on the slow burner.
  • RESORT TO MOBOCRACY TO CHECKMATE TRIBAL RESISTANCE    (19-07-2018)
    It is a strange coincidence that on a day Supreme Court ordered the Union and state governments to come up with a law against “the horrendous acts of mobocracy”, the Hindu vigilantes were busy thrashing Swami Agnivesh and making him immobile in Jharkhand’s Litipara. This was happening just as the SC said that the “recurrent pattern of violence cannot be allowed to become the new normal”.
  • MAYAWATI PREPARING TO ANNOUNCE PRIME MINISTERIAL AMBITIONS    (19-07-2018)
    LUCKNOW: BSP national president and former chief minister Mayawati is preparing to launch herself as a potential Opposition candidate for the prime ministerial post for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
  • MISSING LINK IN KERALA LYNCHINGS    (18-07-2018)
    Thiruvananthapuram Congress MP Shashi Tharoor survived a lynching in his constituency the other day when vandals attacked his office. He was not present when BJP youth-wing cadre ransacked and threw black oil all over the place. Activist Swami Agnivesh was not as lucky. He was set upon and given a thrashing in Jharkhand. But he, too, survived though he will carry mental scars.
  • CENTENARY TRIBUTES TO DR. RAJ BAHADUR GOUR    (18-07-2018)
    While writing on the occasion of the 75th birth anniversary of Dr. Raj Bahadur Gour, famous Urdu satirist Mujtaba Hussain wondered how Dr. Gour had turned to be 75 and was much senior to him. He thought somebody must be joking as Dr. Gour himself never appeared to be so senior. That perfectly reflects the jovial nature of Dr. Gour. With him I had the opportunity to work and interact for over three decades while being a functionary of Ajoy Bhavan, the headquarters of the Communist Party of India in Delhi. I too never thought that his birth centenary will be celebrated during my life time.
  • CHINA FLEXES ITS MUSCLE AT WTO REVIEW MEETING    (18-07-2018)
    The seventh review of China’s trade policies and practices held under the umbrella of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva on July 11 to 13 highlighted the Middle Kingdom’s growing clout and heft in the global economy ever since it became a member of the WTO way back in 2001. Being the world’s biggest merchandise trader and one of the larger recipients of foreign direct investment (FDI), its commercial engagement with the rest of the world counts a lot for the health and wealth of the world economy, particularly at a time when implacable insular elements and parochial protectionist policies hold sway in most of the advanced countries, led by the United States under the mercurial Donald Trump presidency.
  • RAHUL GANDHI MUSTN’T MAKE HIS MOTHER’S MISTAKES    (18-07-2018)
    Indications are that the Congress may once again return to the days of economic populism and an anti-American foreign policy favoured by Sonia Gandhi when the party was in power.
  • NEW MEXICAN PRESIDENT AMLO HAS TOUGH TASK AHEAD    (17-07-2018)
    In the 2006 and 2012 elections, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or AMLO as he is widely known, was a clear winner in his back-to-back bids for the presidency, but voter fraud was rampant and the right-wing candidate was declared the winner in both cases. On his third bid, however, people were prepared for any and all attempts at voter fraud, with widespread efforts to defend electoral integrity. Voters were even told that if the right wing tries to buy their vote, take the money but cast a ballot for the coalition that included López Obrador’s MORENA (National Rejuvenation Movement), anyway.
  • AGENDA OF TAMING LUTYEN’S DELHI JOURNALISTS    (17-07-2018)
    The conservative right in the country values ‘true Indian values’ even if to find what those values are requires travelling back in time to the Vedic Age or sit down with Union minister Dr Satyapal Singh, who denies with vehemence that he did not descend from the apes!
