  • No proof required: Incredible ‘Intolerant’ India

    When the BJP won last year, some observers felt (including myself) that one very likely outcome of the Congress defeat and BJP victory was that the structure and composition of India’s elite would change. There’s consistent talk that over the last year or so, communal tensions and intolerance have increased. Although data on communal violence doesn’t support this inference, it would be wrong to infer that intolerance in India is not at its peak today, a year after Modi and the BJP assumed power.

    Those ‘No Ragging’ posters you vaguely see around educational institutions could be put to good use this week. They must all be collected and sent to Indian media houses country-wide. It has arisen to be the need of the hour, considering the events of November 25, 2015 - the day we would fondly remember as 'Mr. Rahul Gandhi's visit to Mount Carmel College'.

  • Liquor ban in Bihar: Nitish Kumar’s poll promise to women comes at a high cost

Bicycle scheme for girls, 50 per cent reservation for women in panchayats, a gender budget and several women-centric moves have earned Nitish Kumar instant popularity.
