Kiran Bedi gets another bite of the 'Pudu'cherry: Here she comes!

As a friend of 32 years, I am happy for Kiran Bedi. She is a tough nut and actually does it her way, often veering off the obviously wise path but ready to espouse any controversy and wear it with the same dedication as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan dons a gown on the red carpet at Cannes. #Anna Hazare #kiran bedi #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Tihar jail #Arvind Kejriwal #Puducherry

Chris Gayle may never understand sexism, but will cricket establishment do the right thing?

Uttar Pradesh Assembly election: Will Congress and BSP attack SP or BJP?

With Assembly elections coming up in Uttar Pradesh, the BSP might need to make it absolutely clear that it is distancing itself from the Congress. #S&P #Congress #BJP #InMyOpinion #Samajwadi Party #Bahujan Samaj Party #Mulayam Singh Yadav #BSP #Modi #Akhilesh Yadav #Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election 2017 #2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election

India and NSG: Laced with hypocrisy, China's watchdog claim is meaningless

While China takes moral high ground of being global watchdog, her actions amount to being ‘dog on the watch’ or rather ‘dog in the manger’ as far as India is concerned. #India #China #Pakistan #Pervez Musharraf #InMyOpinion #Nuclear Suppliers Group #NPT #North Korea #AQ Khan #Xi Jinping #General Raheel Sharif #Chemical Weapons Convention Treaty

For the Left, it is a battle for an ideological survival, writes Arun Jaitley

For the Left, it is a battle for an ideological survival. Extreme positions espoused by a few in the Universities of Jadavpur and JNU cannot be a mainstream agenda of India. #JNU #Congress #InMyOpinion #Arun Jaitley #bIhar #Communism #The Left #Election Results #Jadavpur University #communist #West Bengal Assembly Election 2016
