  • Shot in the heart: Indian techie’s murder and Indians’ American dream

    On November 20, 2016, 41-year-old Nicki Pancholy was attacked in California after her bandana was mistaken for a hijab. Just a few months before that, Davinder Singh, 47, was shot dead at his gas station in Newark. Both cases had victims who were Indian-Americans and both were hate crimes. However, both cases were also largely ignored, meriting no more than a 200-word news article. So why has the February 22 murder of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, in a Kansas bar evoked such outrage in India? The Indian dream is to “escape” to the US. Almost every other neighbourhood family boasts about their son or daughter who has “made it big” in the ‘States’. According to a report by the department of homeland

  • Javed Akhtar's ignorant name-calling of Virender Sehwag and Yogeshwar Dutt smacks of elitism

    Javed Akhtar, I am sure, lost several fans last night. When the acclaimed poet-writer blamed the low literacy levels of wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and cricketer Virender Sehwag for their comments against Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur, he not only derided their thinking capability, but that of the millions of other Indians who, unlike Akhtar, were not fortunate enough to be born into a family of scholars. The rest of Akhtar's fans may pin his remarks on the human impulse that seems to drive most social media posts these days, but the writer may want to remind himself that in a developing country like India, education is still a privilege.

    New Delhi: A newspaper in Lucknow recently came out with full-page ads on the ‘UP ke ladke’ — Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. This remark may be dismissed as the angst of an SP leader who had to give up some of his pie to accommodate the Congress. As it dawned on the SP strategists that jibes like ‘kabrastaan and Kasab’ were being raised to polarize voters, the strategy devised was not to let this attempt be successful.
