Lokpal dilemma paralyzes Congress: but is the opposition paralyzed too?

Lokpal dilemma paralyzes Congress: but is the opposition paralyzed too?   Moment of action: 'Paralysis' by Jack Kevorkian! New Delhi: latest reports emerging from Delhi inform that in the opinion of the Team Anna, the incoherence of the government’s response is explained by the division of opinion over the Jan Lokpal Bill within the Congress party. The Anna team seems to believe that the party’s internal politics forced the Government to take a U-turn in its negotiations with the Jan Lokpal group.  Late last night around 1 AM, the Government called the Team Anna and invited... 

Occidentally Yours-Remembrance of Sins Past: Brits ignore, Germans obsess!

Somnath Batabyal Occidentally Yours     Remembrance of Sins Past: Brits ignore, Germans obsess!     by Somnath Batabyal   A few evenings back, at a dinner party, a colleague had gone on for a bit too long on German efficiency and its industrious manufacturing of more and more tarmac and fast, reliable cars. Perhaps slightly irritated, perhaps having consumed a wee bit more wine than is advisable, I snapped and retorted that it was the same efficiency which produced Hitler and his brutal machinations.

Troubled times ahead for mukhiyas in Bihar: special drive to nab Indira Awas Yojana embezzlers!     Indira Awas Yojana: a source of commissions?

To give one example, an official in Bihar recently hit upon the novel idea of accepting only vehicles...

Jharkhand: Subodh Kant Sahay faces dharna for calling Hazare insane!     Sahay: 'who said, i said anything against Hazare'! Ranchi: it would appear that citizens are seriously following up on the advice given by the Anna group at Ramlila Maidan, Delhi – the advice to meet your own MP and press her/him to support Anna’s Lokpal draft.  The MPs do have a choice on the matter and may refuse to comply, but clearly hemming and hawing won’t do anymore. Latest reports from Jharkhand inform that a large group of Anna Hazare supporters under the banner of India Against Corporation... 

Batras [बतरस]-Lokpal Movement: is democracy an automated machine or an organism!

Ratnakar Tripathy Batras [बतरस] Lokpal Movement: is democracy an automated machine or an organism!  By Ratnakar Tripathy Despite its many faults, India is indeed a democracy to be proud of. Not all the time. But not too infrequently either! But when this pride turns into hubris [ahankar], you get an interesting paradox. When an Anna Hazare raises his voice to speak, he is told please fight the next election and join the parliament before you open your mouth. Is this a case of democracy bullying the citizen and telling him you don’t matter? First, let us make an admission that seems...
