Recession: Time for Ergodic Cerebration
It is baffling to learn about Ramalingam Raju. A person who, just a year ago, was called a renowned, distinguished entrepreneur and an international business leader, is today behind bars for financial misappropriation in the company which he himself had built from scratch-Satyam. If the media informants are to be trusted, he had been keeping up the defalcation for the past decade! Wasnt it during this time that he was honoured with awards and accolades of both national and international standing...

Emulation of Fallacies
In India, since time immemorial, we have been in pursuit of a society which is laudable as far as principles, ethics, and rationale go. Our pursuits have not [just] been towards creating a financially affluent society. We have been rather immensely zealous in working towards a civilization where all and sundry would live in peace, dignity, and with honor.Yes, it is very much possible that we, especially a large section of the youth, can begin a self-defeating argument against evil practices once...

Song of the Soul: Happiness
Staying happy, for everyone, is imperative. But what makes one happy? And having once attained that happiness how is one to sustain it? Since time immemorial, our civilizations have been in pursuit of happiness. All the religions and social systems discovered or invented were intended to make us happy. But, regrettably, even after conquering the moon and deploying satellites on other planetary bodies in our solar system, we are yet to attain that incessant happiness in our daily lives.Since ever...

Being Anti-Muslim
Because, for past few months, I have been inditing columns critical of Islam with purports from Holy Koran and Hadith, I am being branded as anti-Muslim. You [hate] Islam many have already declared. But hate is such a strong word. Its opposite to love and thus, when you hate you just end up perverting. I have time and again advocated that Seed of hatred begets nothing but destruction. I have never abused Islam nor have I, eer, used derogatory words against Muslims. How can I speak fetid against ...

Obama"s tryst with Islam
If you think Obamas full name is Barack Obama then you are half right. His middle name, which is hardly flashed in the media, is Hussein. Thus his complete name is Barack Hussein Obama.Now the question that would certainly follow is: Does he, or not, have a Muslim background? When the very same question was asked to him sometimes back his answer was If I was a Muslim, I would let you know. and I believed in him. Obama is today a practicing Christian and also a member of the Trinity Church of Chr...

Justifying terrorists, Muslims always wrong
Muslims today are being looked upon with strange skepticism. And conditions are certainly getting worse for even those Muslims who are nowhere near the ideas of the fundamentalists. Without doubt, the situation is absolutely frustrating for Muslims. But how can we ever free the Muslims from the clutches of such suspicion? How do we enable them to lead a normal life, in India at least? Are Muslims and non-Muslims doing their share to restore this dignity? These are some of the fundamental questio...

Anti-Brahmanism: Case Study to Muslims
The Great Uprising of 1857 unnerved the British, though for a while. Within two or three years of quelling it, and with great ferocity, they set to work putting together a version of the incident that would suit their ends. The uprising was confined to just a few pockets, they said, adding, it erupted as a result of local misunderstandings, and that there was no national sentiment behind it for the leaders themselves fought only for their feudal privileges-one because her son was not being recog...

Understanding and Reviving Muslim Psyche
Orthodoxy and fanaticism is found in every religious group, not just Islam. But in Hindu and Christian societies, there emerged a class of reformers who rejected such dogmas outright. There was, of course, a reason for this. Their religions were subjected to assaults and molestation as both had to face Islamic aggression. The defeat they suffered, stimulated these societies to reform themselves. Muslim society is unfortunate in this regard. It has never been subjected to the traumatic experience...

Indian Muslims vs Muslims of India
Islam is at the height of unpopularity today. Muslims are regarded with great skepticism and the credibility of Islam seems to be at stake. Recently, my distinguished friend M J Akbar answered this with a lot of vitality in his article, Is credibility of Islam at stake? But not many were moved by it.The skepticism Islam is encountering globally, is a strange phenomenon. To rebuild the credibility of the religion it is important that the terrorists-call them Islamists, Islamic terrorist, or just ...
U Prabhu S.Ghosh: "Dr. Zakir Hussain and Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam are distinguished personalities who belong to this category. All Hindus, including those in the RSS, and Bajarang Dal, appreciate and honor them."

India is supreme: Value the Freedom
Indias resilient effort to be a free nation was tested by the British for 300 years. When the struggle for freedom began in 1857, thousands of lives were lost. These great freedom fighters didnt lose heart despite coming up against those who decided to bow to the British and licked their boots. They were broken, but they refused to bend over. Even during the time of Mahatma Gandhi, it was only five percent of the population who actually fought the British. All others preferred to stay within the...

Opp Cong intensify hatred against Hindus
The Congress and the other party in the opposition benches in the Karnataka State Assembly which popped up on the scene did nothing to ease the situation. Instead they provoked the sentiments of the Christians to further intensify their hatred against the Hindus and the ruling BJP. It is certainly not wrong to say that the opposition Congress and the JD(S) caused the communal tension which would have been long forgotten by now.Given this, it is certainly not wrong to conclude that the instigator...

Tactics and Propaganda of Proselytization
Ours is an era of capitalism-an era marked by financial prowess, controlled by financial czars, and ruled by corrupt politicos. The greatest weapon of our times is not one that kills the bodys power to breathe, but the one which kills the minds power to reason-propaganda. Any person or institution which successfully utilizes this system is the one who can be victorious in all endeavors. Organizations in this country, apart from political parties, who use propaganda are Christian missionary insti...

Nationalism-A Concept Alien to Islam
As an egalitarian nation, India has the constitutional obligation to guard the religious liberties of every citizen. Hence, recently, when Mohammad Zubair, a corporal with the Indian Air Force, was ordered to shave off his beard to maintain uniformity, he took no time in moving the countrys judicial system. A true Muslim must keep his beard, contended Zubairs attorney, stating that it was an essential part of his faith as per the Hadith and Sunna (recorded customs). We have the constitutional ri...

The Rise and Reign of Sheikh
With the objective of perpetuating their rule on the vast Indian subcontinent, the British made two things the foundation of all their political activities. First was the divide and rule diplomacy and secondly, the arrangement of able agents and even stooges for implementing this appropriately in the political setup.The rulers of Indian states too, played their role in strengthening the British political base. These Rajas and Maharajas neither dared nor thought it proper to oppose the foreign po...
