  • Home alone: why Goa has the highest proportion of locked houses in India

    Goa is witnessing a realty boom. The love affair began suddenly, but it took some time for Haryana-based businessman Rajeev Deswal (name changed) to express his feelings.

  • A Congress Bachao programme for Sonia: Get rid of Rahul Gandhi - Firstpost

    Rahul Gandhi, who the Congress desperately wants as its head, has a unique luxury at his disposal - he can put on or take off his political hat at will. Every political analyst worth his or her salt has said this a hundred times - that Rahul is an on-off politician and that doesn’t work in Indian politics.

In anointing a furtive, taciturn Rahul as its supreme leader, what the Congress chooses to ignore is that times have changed in Indian politics and the party is in absolute ruins.
