Spread the love           It is eleven years to lunar date since his larger than life colorful persona was amongst us, yet his essence, words, royal laughter, humour linger stronger every day for me. His penchant for Telugu sametlu (proverbs); English proverbs, and appropriate usage by pulling out right one for situations was mind-boggling. When I found lazy-person-tricks to […]

Spread the love           UAE ambassador to India Ahmed Albanna confirms that no aid offer of Rs 700 crore was made by the UAE.

Spread the love           Sad commentary on the media. One man’s death counted more than the lives of thousands. Misplaced priority? But who’s gonna tell that to a media sold to an idea, an ideology? Even the left-liberal couldn’t let go the opportunity to drop anchor and RIP Modi with Vajpayee. It was once in a death-time […]

Spread the love           It is no time for a blame game. And yet it may be not be inappropriate to do a reality check. The agonising experience has put the fear of God back into the Malayali mind, which he had long exchanged for material and matter. And God, who had lost his own country to […]

Spread the love           Behind the current proximity between the party and its mentor is the attitudinal difference between Vajpayee and Modi. Unlike Vajpayee, Modi has always belonged to his party’s more hawkish sections, a reputation which was highlighted by the Gujarat riots when Vajpayee had counselled the then chief minister of the state to adhere to […]
