Spread the love           In Hooghly district of West Bengal, lie two nondescript yet idyllic villages, Kamarpukur and Jairambati. The two idyllic villages are the birthplaces of Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Saradamoni. Ruchira tells us about a visit to these two divine places, in the weekly column, exclusively for Different Truths. In Hooghly district of West Bengal, […]

Spread the love           The Hitlerian mindset is in full force. This time it might be an expensive gaffe by the great nonperformer, Arun Jaitley. That millions died, killed by barbaric methods under Hitler did not happen during the Emergency. Only a hapless Jaitley was taken away for short while from his air-conditioned comfort to the jail.

Spread the love           With lightning flashes and thunder in the background taking shelter under the trees didn’t seem advisable. Anyway, we were reluctant to leave the track and enter the dark woods. The track was fast turning into slush making running impossible. We made our way as fast as possible occasionally slipping and soaked up to […]

Preamble: John Bowlby Helps Understand Human Behaviour Caught Between Attachments and Separations – I

Spread the love            The crux of Bowlby’s thesis is that the pains and joys of attachment cannot be reduced to something more primary such as the sexual or death instincts. Just as a child’s love for his mother does not result from the gratification of his oral desires, so the heart-rending expressions of grief quoted […]

Spread the love           The global deal-street now seriously takes note of Indian bids and transactions. India’s outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) in equity, loan and guarantees are largely funded by the Reserve Bank of India. Funds invested are large, running into billions of dollars, every year. Unfortunately, most of them generate little benefit for India, by […]

Spread the love           It is now obvious that a united opposition can defeat the BJP. As much is clear from the Kairana and Noorpur by-election results which are a continuation of the anti-BJP trends noted earlier in Gorakhpur and Phulpur. These outcomes are of particular interest because they pertain to U.P. where the BJP won 71 […]

Spread the love           Modi and Shah have been treating themselves as the first among the equals. Party sources even maintain that, barring four or five leaders, none dares to speak out on their face. Modi talks of internal democracy, but he interacts only with a group of his favourite leaders. He even does not care for […]

The US had imposed the sanctions earlier this year under CAATSA for Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and alleged meddling in the 2016 US Presidential elections. Here’s a report, for Different Truths.  Both Prime Minister […]
