    Not for your eyes: Govt holds on to Netaji death documents

    Why hide the papers? Why keep the conspiracy theories related to Netaji Subhas Bose’s death alive? And why deny India the truth about the death of one of its great freedom fighters? Asks Vir Sanghvi.

    A view of India based on hatred

    Why should a generation that had no real experience of Nehru’s style of governance feel anger and bitterness towards a man whom most independent historians regard as one of the great figures of the 20th century? Asks Vir Sanghvi.

    Pakistan is a separate, distinct, independent country. How it organises its internal affairs is no business of ours. We must deal with whoever comes to power in Pakistan, no matter how they got there, writes Vir Sanghvi.

    It's nobody’s loss if the media do not travel on the PM’s plane: not the PM’s, and not the media’s. And it certainly makes no difference to the Indian reader or viewer, writes Vir Sanghvi.

    Arvind Kejriwal, no more than a vote-bank politician?
