Ajmal Kasab and Amish school massacre

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.

Bond23: Skyfall – Movie Review

Judi Dench plays the vulnerable matriarch of Britain's external intelligence agency, and inimitable academy winner Javier Bardem plays her ex-protege, and now deeply deeply hurt nemesis, the sexual tension is palpable. In case I forgot to mention, the third character is Bond...... James Bond. And his time it is very very personal.

US Elections: 4 more days

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.
