Tamil Nadu Crisis after Jayalalitha's Death

Tamil Nadu Crisis after Jayalalitha’s Death Is but Straightforward

Comments Dt. 09.02.2017 1. Sasikala has been elected as the legislative party leader, and her election has not been challenged in court. So, that makes her the claimant for the CM post irrespective of the MLA support; however, that is subject to the resignation of OPS. OPS claims his resignation was non-est/voidable as given under duress. Of course, the onus of proving duress lies on OPS. Post 7.30 pm, we…


Demonetization: For Me, it Ends in a Dead Modi!

Demonetization: For Me, it Ends in a Dead Modi!

I am late in writing this article. There are two reasons for it. First, I have been working on promotion of my soon-to-be-published e-book Kerala Hugged. Secondly, this exercise has been carried out with such audacious arbitrariness and has been accepted by people with such servile meekness that I am overwhelmed by the stupidity of men. This operation has brought in so much of darkness that it feels scary to even enlighten…


Helping the Naxals in reference demonetization

Helping the Naxals in Reference Demonetization!

I am writing this article at 2.30 AM in the morning, that too when I am feeling extremely drowsy. Indeed, I am helping the Naxals in reference demonetization in this article. The reason is that the present demonetization exercise of this government is so pervert that there is no option except to help outlaws. All political parties are supporting the present government knowing well enough that the black money generated…


Gandhi's South African Train Journey

Gandhi’s South African Train Journey Didn’t Change His Life

On the seventh or eighth day after my arrival, I left Durban. A first-class seat was booked for me. It was usual there to pay five shillings extra, if one needed a bedding. Abdulla Sheth insisted that I should book one bedding but, out of obstinacy and pride and with a view to saving five shillings, I declined. Abdulla Sheth warned me. “Look, now,”said he, “this is a different country…


India a nuke power

Is India a Nuke Power or Is It a Sophomore Kid?

There are five NPT nuke powers: the US, Russia, China, France and the UK; three non-NPT nuke powers: India, Pakistan, and North Korea; and one undeclared nuke power: Isreal. Out of these, China is the only one which has no first use policy. Isreal has around 80 nukes but won’t declare them till it has to use any. South Africa made around 6 nukes much before Pakistan and India even…

Sangh Mukt Bharat Is Necessary

Recently I have finished reading Mushrif’s book “Who Killed Karkare”. I agree it is very speculative and conspiracy theory oriented book, which generally doesn’t get accepted in the mainstream intelligentsia. But, even if 20% of what he has written in the book is true, it is a serious cause of concern. IB, Sanghis (Pune Brahmins), and some members of the Indian Army, are clearly emerging as terrorists in the book….

WB Debacle: The Opportunity For the Left

To be very frank, I have never experienced the Leftist politics first hand. Whatever I have read in books, written by right wingers, leaves an impression that though there is less corruption at the top level in the party, but, at the local level, they institutionalize corruption through local police; i.e., the bribe collected by the police fill up the party coffers — and most probably the same system is…
