Devyani Khobragade row: what this episode could teach us
Now that the brouhaha surrounding l’affaire Devyani Khobragade has simmered down, with all passion spent, it’s time to ask what lessons we need to learn from this unfortunate, if not also unsavoury, episode.
AAP is gaining momentum, but Kejriwal as PM seems a dream!
Perhaps the biggest factor in its favour is that AAP is neither the Congress nor the BJP. It represents the opposite of the two established parties — it’s new, uncorrupt, transparent, young and, importantly, very ordinary. Karan Thapar writes.
New Year advice for Delhi Police: let the traffic flow
Delhi Police should remove the ridiculous barriers they periodically place on the Capital’s roads— nakabandi, as they call it— because they end up annoying the very people the police seek to please or, at least, reassure. Karan Thapar writes.
A truth journalists don’t like to admit
Scepticism and cynicism towards media is by no means unique. Infact, many think of journalism and journalists poorly. Karan Thapar writes.
Suddenly, Mr Modi has become unusually silent
If Narendra Modi endorses Rajnath Singh’s view, that homosexuality is unnatural, why doesn’t he stand up and say so and take on the chin the reproach and criticism that will follow? Karan Thapar writes.
The good woman took a fall for UPA II
The anger that toppled Sheila Dikshit was not directed against her performance in Delhi. It was seeking revenge for the corruption and policy paralysis associated with the Central government.
AAP may lose in Delhi polls, but they will have won anyway
It's what Aam Aadmi Party reflects and what they've restored that makes them important. They reflect the deep disillusionment we feel with our politics and our political parties. Karan Thapar writes.
Modi and Tejpal, a tangled web
Narendra Modi and Tarun Tejpal, two bitter opponents, find themselves caught in similar predicaments. Both men have made a bad situation considerably worse by their foolish handling of it. Karan Thapar writes.
Tendulkar is special because he’s a good man
When I call Sachin good I’m not talking about his cricketing competence nor any saintly streak in his character. I’m referring to a certain niceness, a likeability, that quickly communicates himself, writes Karan Thapar.
Advani's been misled, now he's misleading us
I've spotted two embarrassing errors in LK Advani's blog. Yet, with only a little effort Mr Advani would have known what he was presenting as fact was pure fiction. Karan Thapar writes.
Oops! Modi’s done it again
The list of Narendra Modi mishaps is not only getting longer but delightfully undiscriminating. These days, it seems, each time he speaks he manages to get something wrong- be it on China's GDP or Vallabhbhai Patel's life. Karan Thapar writes.
Rahul Gandhi’s worst enemy is Rahul himself
Would you agree that sometimes Rahul Gandhi can be his own worst enemy. Yes, if you consider the things he has said in his recent speeches or the earlier press conference that scuppered the government’s ordinance. Karan Thapar writes.
The many woes that plague the CBI
Absence of autonomy is not the only affliction the CBI suffers from. Its handling of the Birla-Parakh episode suggests the rot runs significantly deeper. Karan Thapar writes.
The system weathered the raging Cyclone Phailin
Only rarely do journalists in India write in praise. If I’m honest, such sentiments get stuck in our throat. However, the smooth and very successful response to Cyclone Phailin cries out for applause. Karan Thapar writes.
Today, honesty is a diminishing virtue
Imagine my surprise when on Sunday (September 8) I discovered that The Express and Mail Today had done identical interviews, with Kamal Nath making exactly the same point. Was this a coincidence? Or was it just conceivable they had seen the news clips and the excerpts and decided to put the same question to Kamal Nath so they could claim he had given the same answer to them as well? In other words, had they cleverly converted our interview into their own?
