Vir Sanghvi

BJP’s war within has just begun

The rebels are united by their conviction that Advani, having run the party like an extension of his family, is now trying to ensure that his cronies continue to run the party in perpetuity. Vir Sanghvi writes.

Shaken and stirred

I have a confession to make. Though nearly everybody else in the world thought that Casino Royale was the greatest James Bond movie of all time, I thought it was massively over-rated, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Obama and the world

The best hope for America’s image in this situation is the election of a President who slams Wall Street and the big multi-nationals; who promises regulation and who disowns the excesses of the last decade, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Bonfire of Morality

Now that Prime Minister is seen as a manically aggressive and arrogantly inaccessible politician, he can no longer distance himself from the deals struck in his name or the bribes paid to save his office, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Counterpoint: All in the Family

Now that Hillary has failed to get the nomination, why are so few analysts celebrating the end of dynasty? Vir Sanghvi examines...

Punks and Publicity

We must hunt down and arrest anybody who engages in publicity-seeking violence, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Football, Cricket & Money

Thanks to the IPL, cricket is about to undergo a globalised blurring of loyalties in the same way that football has, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Counterpoint | Thakre & Thackeray

This new-found Bombay-Mumbai zeal sits uneasily with Bal Thackeray’s own record, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Counterpoint: The American President

There’s much to celebrate about Indian democracy, but when I look at the current US election process, I recognise that we still have a long way to go, writes Vir Sanghvi.

The publicity hound

There is so much wrong with the stands that Union Health Minister Ramadoss continues to take that it is hard to know where to begin, writes Vir Sanghvi. Also read: Big B takes on Ramadoss.

Mood of Middle India

The first episode of Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain was telecast on Star Plus on Friday. Vir Sanghvi gives some of the things he learnt about the mood of middle India while participating in the process.

India, China and Tibet

Our response to the Beijing Olympics is far too complex to be caricatured as support or opposition. Nearly all of us empathise with the Tibetans, writes Vir Sanghvi.

Counterpoint: Pity The Poor Drivers

If you are a poor man, struggling to make a living in the big city, worst of all, a driver, expect no respect at all, writes Vir Sanghvi.
