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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
