    Hey Ram! We need better netas

    I truly run out of words - except to appeal to Lords Rama and Krishna to give us better netas with more intelligent repartee than we have had in years.

    Nagpur’s moment in the sun

    Nearly a decade later, Nagpur had its revenge: It was the only city in the country that did not report a downturn in 2008 when the world, including New York, was going bust. Fire cracker sales were at an all-time high that year.

    Mr Gadkari, think before you leak

    Gadkari has such wonderful advice for farmers — use your urine to irrigate your crops. After all, he collects his urine in cans to water organic vegetables at his Lutyens bungalow in New Delhi with remarkable results. Should the farmers take that advice seriously? Hmm...

    Macho men no longer in India?

    Nearly one year into the Modi sarkar and six months of the BJP-led government in Maharashtra, there seems to be a sudden dearth of leadership in India.

    A farmers’ Russian roulette

    I wonder what purpose Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s visit (on April 30) to these regions is really going to serve — except to score some political brownie points against the BJP, which has already lost the plot so far as farmers are concerned.

    Of Gods and governments

    When Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi heaps sarcasm on Union minister Nitin Gadkari, I feel quite sorry for my long-standing friend from my hometown of Nagpur.

    Shiv Sena and AIMIM need some gentle reminding

    I wonder if the Sena and the AIMIM know that Bal Thackeray was the first person ever in India to lose his voting rights and that to contest elections for hate speeches he had made during a 1987 byelection to Vile Parle.

    The changing colours of Pawar

    I do not know whether to admire Sharad Pawar or pity the ageing warlord. The NCP is in danger of disintegrating and yet he continues to change colours faster than a chameleon in search of relevance even though he is being rendered into a cipher.

    Maharashtra by-polls: It’s David against the Goliaths

    Jagtap says he is ready for the battle — he is contesting the by-election as an independent from Bandra East to the Maharashtra assembly and says the constituency faces grave problems needing a selfless band of people to salvage it.

    Nikam's cooked up Kasab 'biryani' remark: All for two minutes of fame

    I wonder why the public prosecutor (PP) in the case, Ujjwal Nikam, had to attempt to influence the minds of the judge and the public with a cooked up statement that Kasab had asked for mutton biryani in jail.

    Living in unreal times

    I have had the feeling that I am living in unreal times for the past few months. For all that Narendra Modi was seen as a strongman who would be able to uphold the rule of law in the country, I am afraid the country is fast moving towards becoming a Hindu Pakistan.

    Vinod Mehta, a reporter’s editor

    Mehta may have known only how to be an editor but he was truly a reporter’s delight — and comfort. The world of journalism will be a lesser place without him, I am sure.

    The political economy of beef

    While the Maharashtra government now bans the slaughter of even bulls, though not buffaloes, I wonder how long the ban will remain in place.

    Beware of the morning walk

    Just before the assembly polls, the BJP, targeting the Congress-NCP, came out with a classic line: Kuthe nevun thevla Maharashtra majha? Today, I wish to ask the same of the authorities, "What have you done to a liberal, progressive state like Maharashtra?"

    Will you be my Valentine?

    How long Modi-Pawar love affair lasts though is anybody’s guess. Modi is too much in love with himself to care about others for too long. And Pawar, best at running rings round others.
