Kiss of Love: RSS better watch out as campuses lead charge against moral policing

Since it involves young people, coercion is bound to meet with resistance. They won’t wait like elderly and more mature people hoping for the storm to clear. They will strike back. We saw it in Kerala and now, it is Delhi.

Alienating middle class, blind-siding youth: Congress failed on all counts

Congress may not be officially dead yet, but it’s a matter of time. It’s going to linger a bit like the Indian Left before the curtain comes down. #BJP #Congress #Haryana Assembly Election 2014 #InMyOpinion #Maharashtra Assembly Election 2014 #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #Sonia Gandhi

Mulayam’s offer: Why Mayawati’s refusal is a calculated move

It does not surprise that Mayawati would refuse Mulayam Singh’s offer of a political alliance to take on the BJP. However, her decision is not just emotion; it is based on pragmatic assessment of the ground realities too. #BSP #Mayawati #Mulayam #Mulayam's offer for alliance #PoliticsDecoder #Samajwadi Party #Uttar Pradesh

What we learned from Jaitley’s budget: Pre poll promises are hard to keep
