  • A Spring in the Step

    There is no such thing as the right time to be in New York. There is no season for gaiety or to soothe your mind. The New York Times just carried an amazing insiders track to 70 must-see art galleries. There is so much going on. Tina Brown just finished hosting a superb conference on women and...

  • Of sulkers, whiners and the not so young

    Every election in India, funnily enough, just doesn't have the losers and winners: it has the sulkers, the whiners and the not so young…people who are past their use by date but believe they will and can make a difference: it always surprises me why these blokes won't retire.

  • The Suhel Seth column: Are we still a democracy?

    I am no lawyer but I do have an understanding of India's Constitution and the spirit in which it was conceived. My understanding is we are all free citizens until we break the laws, are hauled up before a court of law and if found guilty, sent out to serve the requisite punishment. There is no...

But I guess Tokyo taught me many lessons that we as a nation would do well to...

  • Shame, suspend, expel and debar

    The unfolding of events in India’s Parliament last week are symptomatic of how every institution in India is either under attack or being sought to be crippled. The shameful behaviour of elected MPs is a pointer to the fact that today party leaders are looking only at winnable candidates and not at...

  • Capital circus

    There is no place better than Delhi this winter. We are having so much fun with our clothes on. We have an army of loonies that have been left to our peril trying to run the Government of Delhi. We will no longer have athletes in our stadia in Delhi but unpolished and untested MLAs and this is a...

  • dna celebrity columnist Suhel Seth: Whose Padma is it anyway?

    The Government of India is infested with intelligent people. Very bright. Very patronising and most importantly very fair. Never has any Government been as bright as these blokes who are running the country, which is why I am not surprised by anything they do. They feed the scion of their dynasty...

  • Wither brand India?

    The mood at the Annual General Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos last week was sombre. But what was even more telling was the mood around Brand India. In fact on an NDTV discussion which had Lionel Barber, the Editor of the Financial Times, Ajay Banga, the global CEO of MasterCard and me...

    Davos, a small Alpine village was put on the world map years ago by a man called Klaus Schwab. Schwab believed it was imperative for business leaders, political leaders and leaders of civil society to sit across the table and examine global issues that would impact each of their verticals.
