The Lajwanti Garden Reliance-Airtel Nexus of Internet

Though monopoly is a bad thing but do you think in this era of competition we consumer do not face it? You are wrong. Monopoly of a different kind plagues us in every space you enter. This monopoly is brands dividing space amongst themselves so that they don’t have to compete against each other and enjoy complete unanimous customer access in areas that they play in.

अच्छी सरकार, अच्छा विपक्ष, अच्छे दिन

कुछ सवाल दोहराये नहीं जाते और कुछ सवालों के जवाब बार-बार बताये नहीं जाते। केंद्र सरकार के एक साल पूरा होने पर ऐसा ही एक सवाल उछाला जा रहा है– क्या सचमुच अच्छे दिन आ गये हैं? सवाल कुछ ऐसा है, जैसे राह चलते किसी आदमी से कोई पूछे—क्या आप कहीं जा रहे हैं? मोदी सरकार के बने अभी बारह महीने ही तो गुजरे हैं, लेकिन इतने कम वक्त में क्या-क्या नहीं हो गया। मौसम

आशु के आंसू, सोशल मीडिया की हंसी

आशुतोष जी रो रहे है। सोशल मीडिया हंस रहा है। आंसू और मुस्कान के इस सार्वजनिक समारोह की सबसे उल्लेखनीय बात यही है कि लोग अब किसी भी बात को गंभीरता से लेने को तैयार नहीं हैं। ना अविरल आंसुओ को और ना ही सार्वजनिक माफी को। संवेदनाएं इतनी कुंद हो चुकी है कि गजेंद्र की मौत जैसी ख़बरों की अहमियत भी अल्पकालिक तमाशे से ज्यादा कुछ नहीं है। तमाशा तंत्र ने ही गजेंद्र की

The curious case of giving up your LPG subsidy

The recent talk by our honorable Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, asking people who can manage to give up their LPG subsidy left me flummoxed. I thought asking the common man to leave subsidies and show austerity should come only after the leaders show them their way. Aren’t there few things that, as people’s representatives, they should give up too. To name a few facilities that these leaders can forego: 1) Staying in posh bungalows

5 AAP Initiatives that are more impactful than its controversies

Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party very clearly understood that the electorate of this country, especially that of cities like Delhi and other urban areas care a hoot about anything else except development and governance. The party learnt that the citizens don’t care who runs the government till corruption doesn’t become a bottleneck in their work and development happens all around. Possibly that is why Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, both of whom are the

भारत और इंडिया में अंतर…..

भारत में गॉंव है, गली है, चौबारा है. इंडिया में सिटी है, मॉल है, पंचतारा है. भारत में घर है, चबूतरा है, दालान है. इंडिया में फ्लैट और मकान है. भारत में काका है, बाबा है, दादा है, दादी है. इंडिया में अंकल आंटी की आबादी है. भारत में खजूर है, जामुन है, आम है. इंडिया में मैगी, पिज्जा, माजा का नकली आम है. भारत में मटके है, दोने है, पत्तल है. इंडिया में पोलिथीन,

Letter to the Youth today from Bhagat Singh – A piece of fiction based on his writing

My Dear Friend, I write to you on my 107th Birthday. It is heartening to know that you are actually reading my letter. I want you to read it fully. I write to you to clearly convey what I stood for and died for. You see, when you die, it is amazing to see how people brand you and attach you to“-isms”, to compartmentalize one’s ideas. These rigid ideologies and beliefs restrict one’s thoughts. So,

The Return of the Commoners, The return of AAP

Today, exactly 1 year after he resigned because he could not get the Delhi Janlokpal Bill tabled in the Delhi assembly, Arvind Kejriwal would take oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi.  When he resigned, I knew that few would accept the reasons he said, and AAP would be facing tough times ahead. It turned out that I was right and the next one-year was torturous and testing for both Arvind Kejriwals and AAPians. Very

As I interacted with more AAP people, I came
