Barkha Dutt

Tehelka row has lifted lid on one of media’s worst-kept secrets

Silence is the enemy of justice, and is no longer an option. Hierarchy cannot become a license for harassment. This is every woman’s battle, writes Barkha Dutt.

Tunnel at the tunnel’s end

The Indo-Pak equation may be entering one of its worst phases. The simmering tension at the LoC is a barometer of that impending fever. Barkha Dutt writes.

Rahul Gandhi: the Insider as the Outsider

Rahul Gandhi's rebellion against the restrictions of his political inheritance may first need a more genuine distance from the Establishment. Barkha Dutt writes.

A tale in the sting

If well-used, sting operations are an invaluable tool for justice. But we can no longer pretend that the recent operation in Delhi is an aberration we can afford to ignore, writes Barkha Dutt.

Courting seclusion

There is no mechanism to probe the allegations against Justice Sabharwal. This insulation can only damage the judiciary’s credibility, writes Barkha Dutt.

Who needs the Left when...

If the Govt is not ready to risk an election then did it really need to challenge their allies with an emotional dare, wonders Barkha Dutt.

Neighbour’s envy

In their curiosity about the ‘idea of India’, Pakistanis seem to be lamenting the death of democracy, writes Barkha Dutt.

India Driving: from Ambassador to Nano

Is the resistance to the Nano in fact a resistance to the democratisation of resources that once separated the rich from the poor, wonders Barkha Dutt.

Republic of delusions

The middle-class is in danger of slipping into an illusory world of well-being; a world in which growth is measured only by soaring Sensex and poverty hinders our ability to dream, writes Barkha Dutt.

Faith accompli

It’s my sense that had the UPA not goofed up and converted the debate around the shipping project into an existential argument over the existence of God, the Sethusamudram may well have been on track today, writes Barkha Dutt.

Worth two in the Mush

Two countries bound together in a dysfunctional relationship of distrust as well as dependence, there is thus an eerie similarity to the elections in Pakistan and the United States, writes Barkha Dutt.

The fortune tellers

Let's celebrate the Forbes' list because all four men on it are men who for the most part, built or expanded their own empires, crawling and climbing their way up, writes Barkha Dutt.

Shadow on India Rising

We salute Indian women who head Pepsi and Motorola, but we couldn’t be bothered about other Indian women who end up as poorly paid maids in New York.
Barkha Dutt examines...

Not caste in stone

Indians seem to react to Mayawati in only two kinds of ways: either with odious prejudice or with irrational reverence, writes Barkha Dutt.

Caught in the middle

The fact is that our politics has shown a lack of imagination in dealing with a constituency of opinionated and aware men and women, who need to be made stakeholders in the system, writes Barkha Dutt.
