The Delhi darkness: Our rulers want an India that thrives on cruelty, fear, division, violence

February 28, 2020 7:33:29 am

India is descending into a night of dread and despair. The ongoing riots in Delhi are not a tactical aberration, some absent-minded lapse of attention. They have been in the making for a while, and represent the future that our ruling classes have imagined for us.

Cost of a spectacle: Donald Trump succeeded in boosting the American economy when India is in a slowdown

February 27, 2020 11:16:39 am

The spectacle put up at huge public expense by the Narendra Modi government to welcome President Donald Trump in Gujarat speaks volumes about the penchant for exhibitionism and the utter servility of the people in power towards the US.

Donald Trump put on a good show for PM Narendra Modi

February 26, 2020 11:45:08 am

If India is to be one of the richest nations, it has to fashion trade deals. Modi may yet be the prime minister who liberates the Indian economy from its old shackles of protectionism and makes it as large and nearly as prosperous as the US economy. He can if he uses his friend Donald Trump well.

Trump’s India visit indicates that bilateral relations are set to deepen to mutual advantage

February 26, 2020 11:44:55 am

Bugbears in India-US relations are fewer today. There is far greater appreciation of India’s concerns on cross-border terrorism even as the US is once again looking at Pakistan through the prism of its interests in Afghanistan.

Cop out in Delhi: Police response invariably reflects the bias of the ruling party

February 26, 2020 11:25:29 am

The police are, no doubt, to blame for not being able to function in an objective and impartial manner. There is definitely a failure of leadership also. But can political parties across the spectrum escape the blame for continuing to use the police as an instrument to further their political agenda?

Is Hafiz Saeed’s sentencing a genuine blow to terror infrastructure in Pakistan?

February 25, 2020 10:38:49 am

The moot point is whether the action against Hafiz Saeed is indicative of a new direction in Pakistan’s counter-terrorism policy, or merely a tactical ploy, as before, to escape economic sanctions.

At the Trump event, a line of camels was in place and at least one of the mounts was seen repeatedly mimicking a salaam like a dancing doll. So far, one has noticed a deliberate design in Modi’s moves. What is not clear is who exactly is this elaborate spectacle designed for?

Delhi must deal with Trump’s determination to recast the global trading system

February 25, 2020 11:11:58 am

The threat to the sovereignty of India and China does not come from occasional statements by the White House, resolutions in the US Congress or stinging editorials from the New York Times. The real threat to their sovereignty comes from policies that deepen internal conflicts.
