2960 MW of electricity coming to Bihar within five years

2960 MW of electricity coming to Bihar within five years A new landscape Editor’s note: it is not often that we react to hard figures with emotion. But this story may be an exception. For some reason I get the image of a little girl sitting with a newly acquired storybook that she is dying to read and the lights go off. She sits mumbling ‘come, lights come’ and falls asleep with fatigue before they do. If you have ever sat in a cold/hot dark room for half a day, waiting for lights, and then just as you begin to give up, the bulb lights up, the frig begins to whir and the fan begins to dance... 

Amartya Sen on Binayak’s sentence: ‘I am outraged, upset, and feel unjustly treated’

Amartya Sen on Binayak’s sentence: ‘I am outraged, upset, and feel unjustly treated’ Binayak Sen: the accused ‘I am very upset about the court decision in Chhattisgarh about Binayak Sen. It is a huge perversion of our system of justice, and particularly of the laws concerning sedition. It’s not at all clear, to start with, that the thing he has been exactly accused of — of passing letters — has been really proved beyond doubt. Secondly, even if this were correct, that doesn’t amount to sedition. He hasn’t killed anyone, he hasn’t incited anyone to rise in violent protest or...

अछूत की शिकायत – हीरा डोम की कविता

ब्राह्मण की तरह हमलोग भीख नहीं मागेंगें ; ठाकुर की तरह लाठी नहीं चलाएंगे ; साहु(बनिया) की तरह हम डंडी मारकर

We need our rights.....

बेईमानी नहीं करेंगे और अहीरों की तरह गाय नहीं चोरायेंगे;

आगे पढने के लिए

Yes, Sushil Modi Ji, let’s question the Congress history, but let’s question JP too

Yes, Sushil Modi Ji, let’s question the Congress history, but let’s question JP too Time for requestioning: one and all Patna: yesterday Sushil Kumar Modi responded to the recent self-criticism by the Congress party in a 125th anniversary volume that concluded a five-volume history of the Congress. The book criticizes all its leaders but Jawaharlal Nehru and seems to be particularly harsh on Sanjay Gandhi. Modi said that this was just an attempt to blame Sanjay Gandhi for Indira Gandhi’s mistakes because Sanjay’s family is now part of the BJP fold. He then went on say that the Congress... 

Blissful Bihar- Photo Feature

Blissful Bihar Ajit discovers bihar thru his lens Photo Feature by Ajit Chouhan Nalanda University Nalanda, where ruins of the great ancient university have been excavated, is situated at a distance of 90 km. in the south east of Patna by road. The ruins extend over a large area and represent only a part of the extensive establishment. There are many versions of what the term Nalanda means. One is that Nalam means Lotus and Da means to give. Both combined together, Nalanda means Giver of Lotus. Since Lotus is supposed to represent knowledge, Nalanda means Giver of Knowledge.Nalanda was the largest... 

Disowning the past?: the Congress tries to rewrite its future in its 125th year

Disowning the past?: the Congress tries to rewrite its future in its 125th year Congess history: some uncrowning, some crowning New Delhi:  there is some earth-shattering news from the Congress – it seems to be opening its windows, if not its doors and gateways just a bit. In a self-reflective mode, the Congress is willing to admit the follies and excesses of the emergency of 1975, when Indira Gandhi took Indian democracy in a reverse gear. In the volume ‘The Congress and the Making of the Indian Nation’ commemorating the 125th year of its founding, the Congress admits a series of  unlikely... 

Changing meanings of the word ‘Durbar’: Nitish’s contribution to our political vocabulary

Changing meanings of the word ‘Durbar’: Nitish’s contribution to our political vocabulary All this goes into database Patna: at his Janta Durbar yesterday, deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi told the press that a new software is being developed to create and maintain a database for Janta Durbar complaints. This will allow the CM’s office to keep track of the actions taken and the follow-up in each and every case. This is very welcome because there was somewhere a doubt in the public mind that conversations and hurried scribbles on pads do not and will not go a long way. Simply put,... 

‘Ganga would be pollution free by 2020’: says who and on what basis?

‘Ganga would be pollution free by 2020’: says who and on what basis? Kanpur: Chromium in gangajal PATNA: with headlines of some of Patna dailies screaming – ‘Ganga would be pollution free by 2020’, the question may be asked – who said this? Certainly not Sushil Kumar Modi, who on his way to Delhi for a meeting of the Ganga River Basin Authority said ‘he hoped’ Ganga would be made pollution-free by 2020. Between the certainty of prediction and cautious hope lies an enormous gulf which sections of our media seems to miss altogether. ‘Cautious hope’, because Modi quietly mentioned...
