Lenin’s Contributions – Must Read

Yesterday Indian goons brought down a statue of Lenin in the Indian state of Tripura. I am deeply pained and I want to record the tremendous contributions of Lenin in this blog for those goons who thought that he was a foreigner. Lenin was born into a wealthy […]


A saffron North-East – after 1870

My father was posted in Shillong between 1980 to 1983 and I went to the Kendriya Vidyalaya Happy Valley school there. Shillong was beautiful and untouched… there were almost no scooters or bikes there and we went walking everywhere. We managed to get many western clothes there as […]


Karti – temporarily carted away

I waited till the Delhi Patiala House court judge pronounced his order on Karti Chidambaram.. I don’t usually pray but I was praying that the slimy Abhishek Manu Singhvi didn’t manage to set him free. Karti Chidambaram and his father P. Chidambaram are the icons of CONgress power […]


The Soldier and The Politician

Today while browsing FB, I saw this post from my friend Neeti. Its a letter from Malvika Lamba, an army wife and it brings out the stark difference between the world of a soldier and that of a politician. It reminded me of something that happened earlier. A […]


Remembering CEC Seshan

Happy National Voters’ Day. Today, I was remembering the man who reminded the entire nation that we have a Election Commission of India with a Chief Election Commissioner …. Mr. T. N. Seshan. A maverick who changed the Indian Election scene forever. Some people are truly rare and […]


Hyenas on the hunt

I started this blog on Jan 3rd but couldn’t complete it because I wanted some more instances to prove the pattern of the hunt. Also in India and the world at large, its always better to wait for a few days to go by after an incident/event/uprising happens […]


Well, the Hat-trick was averted !

Just heard that the poster boy for corruption, Lalu Yadav has been convicted in the 20 year old fodder scam. A sigh of relief ! In the past two days, other wannabe and almost-there stars of corruption got a clean chit in their respective cases so today was […]


B(F)reaking News – Rahul takes responsibility for election loss !

I almost fell out of my chair….. as am sure many of you would have after reading this blog’s title. But stay in your seats – this is my “khayali pulao”. Will there ever be a day when the Pidi-handle of CONgress takes responsibility for ANY failure?? Now […]


V for Victory… AAP kahan ho?

It was heart breaking to see Rajdeep having to show PM Modi waving to the city country with a “V” for victory. Sharing Rajdeep’s pain is Javed Ansari whose heart has slipped to his knees and his strident voice has been reduced to a croak. I am praying […]


Anti-incumbency ? Anti-Model?

In Himachal Pradesh CONgress lost because there is anti-incumbency after just 5 years of rule … but in Gujarat BJP’s model for the past 22 years has failed. How sweet. Again, that permanently-in-pain Sanjay Jha is talking of BJP’s hubris … and the Gandhi dynasty has been the […]
