  • As we look ahead with new goals and vision

    In the year 2000, many countries in the world, under the stewardship of the United Nations, came up with the Millennium Goals, goals for all countries to maximise health, education, justice and better lives. Some countries have achieved some of these. Many are far from achieving most of these.

  • Placing faith over reason and logic

    As I was growing up, there were frequent news stories about prodigies — two year olds whose first words were the Ramayana or the Koran; children who sang before they walked and knew all the ragas; children who could heal the sick by the age five and more. Being an Indian I didn’t dismiss them...

  • Let's spare a thought for AMC's safai karmacharis

    The jhadu has taken centre stage in the national imagination. It is being wielded by many who have never had to use it in the traditional sense, certainly not for public good! The jhadu wielders are in the news, both in the papers and certainly on prime time TV. But what of those forced by birth...

  • Snooping and stooping to what extent?

    As an aftermath of the Delhi rape case and the Justice Verma Committee report, the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was amended in relation to sexual offences against women. The amendments included the crime of stalking, “to follow a woman” and “to monitor a woman by the use of the internet, mail or any...

  • Look who's paying for our hunger for beauty!

    At what price is beauty got? When I ask this question, I don’t mean the price one pays personally by starving to lose weight, or runs for hours to build muscles or get haircuts and surgeries, to look more beautiful. I am talking about the price others have to pay for us to look beautiful.

  • RTI activists fighting fear, fiercely

    My heart goes out to Bhikhubhai whose relentless efforts have finally paid-off. Unlike Haren Pandya’s father, who died with his mission of finding justice for his slain son incomplete, Bhikhubhai’s search for justice for his slain RTI activist son Amit Jethava has resulted in the arrest of a BJP...
