The original values of the Constitution— secularism, liberalism and democracy— work together — and have helped sustain national unity. A liberal and secular State cannot but be a democratic State, which deepens national unity. But when there is an attack on one value, the others become vulnerable.

UPDATED ON JAN 26, 2020 08:28 AM IST
A historian can use the past to understand the present, but a historian cannot predict the future. But that the Republic is passing through a very troubled phase in its history is evident. That it lacks the sort of enlightened leadership that can take us out of our difficulties is even more evident.

There are perhaps two reasons behind the Modi government’s unseemly haste in passing the CAA through Parliament. The first is bigotry.

Politicians must agree to hike the education budget

By Venkatesh Athreya
UPDATED ON APR 06, 2019 11:03 AM IST
It is encouraging to note that the election manifesto of the Congress commits that, if voted to power, it will ensure that the total public expenditure on education will reach 6% of GDP by 2023-24. The CPI (M), too, has made a similar commitment in its manifesto. One hopes a consensus can be reached to achieve this target at least during the term of the 17th Lok Sabha
