मीडिया को तो इमरजेंसी बेहद पसंद है

ये दिलचस्प संयोग है कि आज से चालीस साल पहले मेरे जैसे देश के हजारों मीडिया-साहित्य के छात्रों ने जब आंखें खोली होगीं तो उन्हें सबसे पहले ये खबर सुनने को मिली होगी कि अब ऑल इंडिया रेडियो पूरी तरह ऑल इंदिरा रेडियो हो गया है और मैंने जब आंखें खोली तो सात दिन पहले ऑर्डर की गई किताब ठीक इसी दिन मिली जब हवा में इमरजेंसी का नया संस्करण घुला है..आखिर देर रात हम

Remembering Karl Marx on his 197th Birthday – May 5th

The worker becomes all the poorer the more wealth he produces, the more his production increases in power and range. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates. With the increasing value of the world of things proceeds in direct proportion to the devaluation of the world of men. Labour produces not only commodities; it produces itself and the worker as a commodity — and does so in the proportion in

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

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

Young politicians are the only hope for India’s future

‘And the motion stands defeated’,announced the speaker The bill which stated “Young politicians are the only hope for India’s future”, stood defeated in the parliamentary debate held in our University. When the house was moved to vote for the motion only few of them raised their hands in a house of about 50 members and thus the bill stood defeated. The treasury bench made some valid points saying that the youth has new ideas, new

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

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

देश में अब कोई भूखा न होगा भूख से किसी की अब मौत नहीं होगी देश में हमारे अब अन्न का भंडार है भूख से निपटने की परिस्थिति से हम ऊपर उठ गये हैं अतिरिक्त अनाज है देश के गोदामों में जिसका उपयोग जनता न कर पाती है शेष रह जाता है प्रतिवर्ष जिसका भंडारण, रक्षण भी एक मुसीबत बन जाती है स्थिति आती है यहाँ तक कि गोदामों में अनाज सड़ने लग जाता है
