AAP sting: Will corruption allegation strategy on Kejriwal by BJP and Congress ever work?

Arvind Kejriwal's single-point agenda of fighting corruption, that brought him to power in Delhi, has also made it quite easy for his opponents to weaken him: attack him on nothing else, but corruption. It was he, who chose it to be his Achilles heel. #AAP government #anti corruption #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Congress #Delhi #PoliticalPlay

David Headley revelations will lead to nothing for India because Pakistan is a Somalia in our neighbourhood

Three things are absolutely certain: Pakistan and its ISI will be implicated; Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, his Pakistan military and ISI interlocutors will be named, and the details of the conspiracy and its roll-out will be spelled out. To summarise, Headley’s deposition from his US jail, where he is serving a 35 year term, will clearly establish that it was indeed Pakistan, and not some non-State rogues, that had unleashed terror in Mumbai. #Anti-Terrorism #India #Indo-Pak #InMyOpinion #ISI #Islamic terrorism #LeT #Pakistan

Aman ki Asha is real but official India-Pakistan talks are always a farce

Let’s do everything else except official talks: Aman Ki Asha, cricket matches, movies, TV-shows and Sufi concerts. At least they radiate real peace and Pakistan army doesn’t feel threatened. #Atal Bihari Vajpayee #India #Narendra Modi #NSA talks #OnOurMind #Pakistan #sushma swaraj

Give up your climate policy: CEA Arvind Subramanian’s advice is no good for India

When Arvind Subramanian was chosen as the the Chief Economic Advisor (CEA) to the Narendra Modi government last October, what startled informed critics in India was how a man who had advised the US government to be tough with India in his previous Avatar could protect our national interests. #Arvind Subramanian #Asean #Chief Economic Advisor #Climate #climate change #Narendra Modi #NewsTracker #US

Land for temple is fine, but Modi ignored the real problems of Indian labourers in UAE

At the heart of the migrants’ misery in the UAE, as well as in other Gulf countries, is their suspended life — unlike in the US and other western countries where Indians can seek to be “settlement migrants” (ILO terminology), in UAE, they can only be “contract migrants”, that too under the “Kafala” system, in which the government doesn’t take responsibility for the migrants and leaves it to “sponsors” that include individuals and companies. How much did Modi speak for them? #Dubai #Dubai Cricket Stadium #InMyOpinion #labourers #Migrants #Narendra Modi #UAE

Ban porn, what we watch, eat, write and do in private. Is this really India?

This aggressive cultural nationalism playing out as bans, ideological re-imagination of the country’s political and cultural past, ideological takeover of national institutions, threats to dissent by the State and its cronies, and abusive online armies of vigilantes, who are particularly vulgar on women, together denote a mini Talibanisation in progress #ban #ConnectTheDots #India #Maharashtra #Nationalism #PornBan #privacy #RTI
