Through The Eyes Of An Average Indian Citizen Hoping That Truth Triumphs

It is a morning of renewed hope as the nation gets set to welcome its son Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. His flight had crashed during India’s aerial combat with Pakistan.  What an eventful week this has been.

What’s India’s Next Step In The Aftermath Of Pak Retaliation?

It is a strange day with a rather uneasy calm across India. Every second whatsapp forward is surprising about war preparedness. From what essentials should individuals stack at home to whether you should send children to school and what not. Perhaps that is why it is only appropriate that we sit and understand the course of action that generally follows. Not sure if it can limit the panic mongering but […]

Clamorworld Special: Of The Sedition Act And Its Relevance Today

The debate over the relevance of the colonial-era Sedition Act has again come to the forefront. I don’t want to put a view on whether Kanhaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid or Anirban Bhattacharya’s action was anti-India. It is for the Supreme Court to take a stance on it.

All Eyes On The BJP Gameplan For 2019 After An Unfavourable Assembly Poll Mandate

To say that the 2018 Assembly Election results were unexpected would be an understatement. Well, one thing is sure, it does act as a speedbreaker in what the BJP assumed to be a smooth sail to the 2019 General Elections. Different political parties and leaders have spoken vocally about the anti-BJP mandate that’s come through. But in this context, I find Mr Jaitley’s comment particularly interesting. He says the mandate […]

Should BJP Worry About Fallout As Ayodhya Case Hearing Is Adjourned To January

The Ayodhya Case is in focus once again. The Supreme Court has adjourned further hearing on the disputed land of the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid area to January. The Chief Justice of India rejected the hearing saying that the “court has its own priorities.” The bench comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice KM Joseph was hearing a batch of petitions challenging the 2010 Allahabad High […]

How I See Independence 72 Years After?

August 15, 2018 marked the 72nd Independence Day. We have come a long way from that rainy August day in 1947 when we managed to regained control of our Motherland. It is true that we are one of the world’s most thriving Democracy, a vibrant Economy and a Republic with deep roots. But how do we interpret Independence today. It is true the tryst and struggled of our forefathers are […]

Clamorworld Special On 4th International Yoga Day

The world has come together to celebrate the fourth International Yoga Day on June 21, 2018. The theme for 2018 is ‘Yoga For Peace.’ Just how do we interpret peace in the given scenario? Is peace about two countries maintaining diplomatic relations? Is peace about individuals respecting each other? Is peace about giving the space to the downtrodden, the underprivileged and the weak? Or are we talking about the peace […]
