  • Why India has never seen a military dictatorship

    A true story: In 1957, the then Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, visiting the office of general Thimayya, the chief of the army staff, saw a steel cabinet behind his desk, and asked the general what it contained. Ah, said the general with a straight face, the third drawer contains my secret plans for a military coup against you. Military dictatorships have been a common phenomenon in the post-colonial states of Asia and Africa, and in the 1950s and 1960s, a dictatorship in India was not an impossibility. In fact, while covering the 1967 general elections, The Times correspondent, Neville Maxwell, prophesied that these might well be the last elections ever in the country.

  • Maggi noodles in soup: Everything you need to know about the controversy

    There appears to be no end to the woes of food products giant Nestle India over its popular Maggi noodles, with the Delhi government saying samples it tested were found “unsafe” and the Kerala government removing the brand from state-run outlets. What began as a routine inspection of Maggi samples in the Uttar Pradesh town of Barabanki in March has developed into a storm that has led to the two-minute noodles swiftly disappearing from the shelves of stores across the country. It all began when VK Pandey, a 40-year-old Barabanki-based officer of the Uttar Pradesh Food Safety and Drug Administration, collected samples of Maggi from a store on March 10, 2014 for tests to determine whether the manufacturer was complying with its stated claim that the product doesn’t contain any monosodium glutamate (MSG), a taste enhancer. A test in a laboratory in Gorkahpur revealed the amount of MSG was more than the prescribed level.
