Making of the President 2016

Nobody in the world is new to Donald Trump, nor to that thing that lives on Trump's head. It is true Trump has said horrible things about minorities, women and everyone who is not Donald Trump.

Humility and Simplicity

Do not write these two thousand word rambling, loud editorials which insults everybody's intelligence. This is not Narendra Modi's party which needs to make up for lack of intelligence and critical thinking through loud provocations. Don't be a cyber hindu.

Two day strike – what they want

By | 2013-02-20T02:02:56+00:00 February 20th, 2013|India, Politics|

A simple napkin calculation says an average household needs to make Rs.1.4 lakh a month to be in middle class in India by global standards of consumption. So if you make less than a lakh a month, you are struggling by global standards. Shouldn't everybody make at least Rs.10,000 a month?

Neruda, Mountain and the River

And they say to me: “Your people, your luckless people, between the mountain and the river, with hunger and grief, they do not want to struggle alone, they are waiting for you, friend.”

Ajmal Kasab and Amish school massacre

By | 2015-07-29T16:37:44+00:00 November 21st, 2012|India, Papa Bear, Politics|

Ajmal Kasab who is dead now, was given due process, and legal help by the Indian state. That's definitely something Maharashtra and Union governments can be proud of. We are not Somalia or Afghanistan or Gujarat. And we did much better than USA on prosecuting terror related cases. The Indian state can some more credit for the fact that they never gave up on due process in Afzal Guru's or Kasab's case despite the cacophony of 'Bharat Rakshak's on social media.

US Elections – 24 hours

Less than 24 hours to go. Watching Obama attend the last campaign stop in Iowa this hour. Bruce Springsteen on stage.Iowa is where it all started for Obama, and he is ending the last campaign of his political career in Iowa."they said this day would never come....."

US Elections: 4 more days

By | 2012-11-04T00:13:00+00:00 November 2nd, 2012|Politics|

It's the end game in American politics. What started 14 months ago with a straw poll in Iowa will end in under 100 hours, when America elects it's next president, and not many elections have come so close as this one. Over a year long primaries are done, debates are over, national grandstanding is done, and now its down to the ground game. The ground game will pit Mitt Romney's well funded, mammoth Republican machine, against one of the best political machines of all time - the campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama.
