Corruption in India, and Fixing it
Corruption corrodes national economy, makes life difficult for citizens and inhibits investors not interested or skilled in managing corrupt politicians and bureaucratic establishment. There are many facets to corruption. Some corruption involves paying off power holders (politicians, bureaucrats, police, judges, etc and middlemen including clerks and peons who control access to officials or process paper work). Some corruption reflects on the prevailing morality and ethical values in the countr...

Lalu and Modi: Tale of two CMs
It was during Lalu Prasad Yadavs heyday as Chief Minister of Bihar, that a colleague in Patna told us these stories, the first as one of those Lalu jokes and the second as a real life incident “A famous surgeon in Patna was kidnapped. His kidnappers demanded a ransom of two lakh rupees for his release. He informed his kidnappers that they had better release him as he was one of Lalu Prasad Yadavs personal physicians. The kidnappers laughed and told him that if he was so confident that Lalu would...

Restoring Soul of Vedic Knowledge
Some believe that humanity will have to wait until December 21st 2012 for the galactic alignment that will open the doors to greater consciousness as foretold by the Mayan Calendar. But perhaps the Mayan calendar countdown has been miscalculated by a few years.1 Perhaps the December 21st 2010 Solstice/Total Lunar Eclipse conjunct Pluto and the Center of the Milky Way Galaxy,2 decorated by the Ursids meteor shower was the event or alignment that the Mayan cosmologists foresaw.Many envision or hop...

Media Ethics In Britain and India
On May 14, 2004 Piers Morgan was fired as editor of Britains biggest selling newspaper, “DAILY MIRROR” over the issue of some pictures he published in the paper on Saturday, May 1. The pictures were of British soldiers of the Queens Lancashire Regiment abusing Iraqi civilians, more specifically one of which published on the front page of a British soldier in full modern battle-gear urinating on a hooded Iraqi.The pictures instantly raised a furor in the political establishment as well as the med...
UN Das Anup: In one area, there is no difference between British media and the Indian, that is Hindubashing. Many years ago, I used to read The Guardian thinking it to be the least biased but in time I realised all British media starting from BBC to FT are the sa.... [1 comments]

Hindu American Foundations ill-prepared and ill-promoted report on Caste has backfired on its face.A prominent endorsee of the report, Dr. N. S. Rajaram, a historian and professor of history of science at University of Massachusetts withdrew his support for the report.“You are aware that I have largely been supportive of your initiative on caste. But this latest antic by your Human Rights Coordinator Ramesh Rao places it in a different light altogether,” he said in his terse note dated January 1...

America, Pak & Emerging Global Powers
Americas Afghanistan strategy review drew attention to Pakistan hindering progress in the Afpak conflicts with its continued defiance to eliminate safe heavens for terrorist - the Haqqani group dominated TTP in NWFP and LET/JUD and JEM in Punjab province co-linked to al Qaeda ideology. An economically weakened America of 2010s is likely not to have same cloud as that of 2001 to force the BACWAS (bureaucrats, army, clerics, warlords and scholars) establishment of Pakistani to neutralize from with...

Assessing Global Jihadism
Global jihadism unleashed by al Qaeda and co-linked Taliban and ISI operatives have essentially instigated a Clash of Civilization, though to be politically correct, to minimize the serious implications to global political stability, the politicians call it War on Terrorism, Iraq and Afpak wars. In addition to Iraq and Afghanistan Jihadisms targets are US, NATO nations, Pakistan and India....

Peace in South Asia
A famous politician is quoted as having claimed, "Being Americas enemy may be dangerous but being its friend is certainly fatal." Pakistan is one such friend of America. Wikileaks add substance to what has been known to political observers for long (see A Cowasjee, Dawn, Dec 19, 2010 and Huma Yousef also at Dawn, same issue).The politicians of South Asia nations periodically should remember it judging from commentaries on visits of many international leaders to South Asia. All five permanent UN ...

An open letter to Mr. Rahul Gandhi
That should be the message for you and your party, Mr. Gandhi. For too long, Indians have been fooled. They have been kept hungry and illiterate so that they are dependent on crumbs offered by the government and political parties, for the price of their vote. For generations, they have been promised roti, kapada aur makan before every elections, but they received nothing but injustice, humiliation and disdain after that. You have asked the youth to come and join and change politics. But politics...

Has The Country Moved On?
There is no need to go into the ample archaeological evidence that bespoke of the existence of a massive temple under the mosque. The archaeological evidence points to a grand Vishnu Hari temple that was in existence much prior to the Sunga Dynasty which Babar himself proclaimed to have defeated. In fact the evidence gathered dates back to the Gupta Dynasty. This evidence of a pre-existing temple was clinching enough for the majority judgement to conclude that the mosque was built on the ruins o...

Takfir and Moderate Muslims
Islam like Christianity is a version of Judaism. Similarities and differences are interesting. Unlike Christians both Muslims and Jews dont eat pork. Basic religious tenets are comparable in three faiths; details of social and political systems differentiate three faiths into open and closed societies. Political ideology is either faith driven closed society or a constitutional democracy. The constitutional democracies are open societies as they value human rights, gender equality and separation...
