BJP and the Nitish tangle

There’s still a year to go for the general elections, yet we have started witnessing a great deal of thunder and lightning. But that’s only on the surface. Deep down, every party is at work. Let’s quickly survey the scene. The Congress Party has no issues at the “top” and both Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi are working with the eye on 2014.

Back to black box?

The verbal duel between BJP leader Arun Jaitley and Markandey Katju, chairman of the Press Council of India (PCI), need not surprise us.

Fragile alliances

The Congress does not have any issues concerning its leadership as its president Sonia Gandhi is leading the party from the front. There is no doubt that its newly elected vice-president Rahul Gandhi and his team will spearhead the Congress’ campaign strategy for 2014 Lok Sabha elections.

Cong shows its cards, will BJP up the ante?

With Rahul Gandhi elevated to the post of the vice-president of the Congress Party, after being in charge of the 2014 elections, Congress president Sonia Gandhi has triggered changes for the next generation to take over the party’s reins. This is the right thing to do and it shows that the Congress has started its election work.

In the New Year 2013, we all prayed for a miracle to happen but it was not to be. The 23-year-old gangrape victim passed away in Singapore but her loss generated a revolution of sorts and stirred the conscience of the nation.

Baba and the black sheep

Much has happened in the last 48 hours. While it would be repetitive to list all the steps already announced and being taken by the UPA government with regard to checking crime against women, it is clear that people’s spontaneous agitation across the country, demanding a safer, better India for women, has initiated a change for the better.

The M&M factor

I am not surprised at the voting pattern on FDI in either House. The Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party voted along predictable lines, enabling the UPA government to defeat the Opposition’s motion against FDI in multi-brand retail in both the Houses last week.

V for vendetta

Bal Thackeray passed away on November 17 after heading the Shiv Sena for close to five decades. Balasaheb was given an emotional sendoff — two million people turned up for his funeral at Shivaji Park.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
