How far is the arrest of AAP MLA Commando Surinder Singh justified?

In order to understand the gravity of the situation, we need to first know who Surinder Singh is. He is not just another MLA, he is Commando Surinder Singh. Surinder Singh joined Indian Army in the infantory regiment and has fought not only the Kargil War, but also has been a part of the Operation Parakram, Operation Sadbhavna and Operation Black Thunder and was part of the UN mission in Congo (Operation North Night).

माननीय मैट्रिक फेल

चाहे डिग्री देने वाली यूनिवर्सिटी हो येल या फिर माननीय हो मधेपुरा उच्च माध्यमिक विद्यालय से मैट्रिक फेल, फर्क कुछ भी नहीं पड़ता है। माननीय तो हमेशा माननीय ही रहेंगे। पढ़ाई-लिखाई, डिग्री-सार्टिफिकेट वगैरह से उपर। इस देश में ना जाने कितने अंगूठा टेक एमएलए और एमपी हुए। अपना दस्तख़त तक ना कर पाने वाले कई लोग मंत्री तक बने और पूरे ठाठ से राज चलाया। काला अक्षर भैस बराबर और लोकतंत्र में भी सब धन

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

Why Chetan Bhagat’s advice to AAP is completely misplaced

The birthing and teething of AAP has been happening in the public domain unlike ever before in India! The GOP i.e. INC of course happened in a somewhat similar fashion during an authoritarian colonial regime but with a devoted and consensual nursery of stakeholder publics! But people connect of course is now gone for INC. Aam Aadmi Party is still bravely experimenting in crowd sourcing of governance strategies. The recent PAC turbidity is a vibrant

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

The Story of AAP I Know

The Beginning: I have been associated with AAP and its volunteers since the last 1 year. I was one of the latecomers who joined the movement after initial surge in last Delhi Assembly Elections. I was never interested in politics before AAP came into real existence. I joined the AAP Official Group on December 18th 2013, made my first donation to AAP on January 1st 2014. As I interacted with more AAP people, I came

“Modi” Ji Nai Dilli main apka swagat hai, Clear Learnings

After the mammoth victory in Delhi, one thing is coming to a clear. That the NaMo juggernaut is close to halt now and there is a need for something special to keep the show running for the BJP government. Once Delhi chooses Arvind unanimously, the city and through them, the nation will tell the Prime Minister that in this changing country, a country which is now developing in intelligence and information gathering, where the number of

Jhadoo Chal gayi

10th of February Seems that the people of Delhi are a big follower of Mr. Narendra Modi. He had asked the people of the country to take up ‘Jhaadu’ and clean up their surroundings. That’s what the people of Delhi actually did!! Its a clean sweep victory for AAP in Delhi elections and for the next five years ‘Jhaadu’ is going to have lots of work and lots of areas to clean. There is something
