Annapurna Circuit Trek: Fairy Tale of Love with Nature

“Annapurna Circuit Trek: Fairy Tale of Love with Nature” is a compilation of unforgettable memories of my unconsummated love affair with nature. You can call it a travelogue, but it’s more than that. A traveller visits a place and returns, but I have not yet returned. Though my body has pulled my mind towards Delhi, but the memories well crystallized inside the mind are making it wander even now. I…

Thanks to Article 370, Kashmir is Not Yet Independent

Adhir Ranjan Chaudhury has raised an important question in Lok Sabha: Is Kashmir an internal matter of India? The question has been raised in the context of the dispute raised by India before the United Nations, which makes Pakistan an interested party in Kashmir. This is indeed a factual position and the UN still monitors Kashmir. However, even if there was no involvement of the UN in Kashmir, it wouldn’t…

Tharoor may not be the representative thought on Hinduism in the Congress — in fact I know the Congress is majorly influenced by Kashmiri Saivism, of which the book tells almost nothing — but his is the only well articulated one at the moment. Moreover, he was deemed to have borrowed from the other…


Karnataka Elections' Ramification for Left

Karnataka Elections’ Ramification for Left

The tweet by the Kerala tourism inviting Karnataka MLAs to Kochi resorts was witty indeed, but was it just witty or more than that? Kerala tourism deleted the tweet subsequently. Why? Some regional newspaper say the tweet was criticised as being in bad taste. I doubt it. All I know it garnered 10,000+ likes. Anyways, soon the Kochi resorts did become the political destinations of last resort. However, the bus…


Judge Loya Judgment

Judge Loya Judgment Analysis

Judge Loya judgment has been rendered on a group of petitions seeking investigation into the death of Judge Loya. The only issue in the case was whether the inquest report prepared u/s 174 CrPC closing the case on the finding that the death was due to natural causes, was correct. Let me state at the outset that out of 118 pages of the judgment, 117 pages are pure noise. There…


Rape

All Sex Is Mild Rape

Some people call rape even more heinous than murder. They opine rape is manifestation of political dominance of the stronger males over weaker females. They consider rape as nothing more than violence. As per the commonly accepted definition of rape, penetration of foreign substance into any of the orifices of the female body by the dominating male sans consent is rape. Consent could be expressed or implied. So, the differentiator…
