बात दीवार पर स्पष्ट लिक्खी हुई है. कुछ लोगों को वह नज़र नहीं आती. कुछ जो देखते हैं, वे उसे पढ़ नहीं पाते. बाकी बचे लोग पढ़ लेते हैं तो उसका मतलब उन्हें पल्ले नहीं पड़ता.
Janata's United, Modern and Liberal Awaaz, or JUMLA, felt jittery. With 2019 Lok Sabha elections less than two years away, the party had not yet picked on a Prime Ministerial face to challenge the puissant, Narendra Damodardas Modi. It's creme de la creme, brooded, brainstormed, belaboured for days but found none. Nothing comes out of scraping an empty barrel. Mr. Modi stood leagues in front of any competition.
Bihar lies in the river plains of the basin of the river Ganga. It is endowed with fertile alluvial soil with abundant water resources, especially ground water resources. This makes the agriculture of Bihar rich and diverse. The net sown area in Bihar is 60% of its geographical area. Such a high percentage of cultivated land is possible because most of Bihar is plain area suitable for agriculture and some are converted into wasteland.
The army issuing a commendation card to Nitin Gogoi who used a Kashmiri as a human shield against stone-pelters betrays total political bankruptcy of Modi regime in handling the Kashmir dystopia. Now brighter Nitins in the army would be emboldened to take a leap - from human shield to lynch for higher rewards, from a card to a glistening shield. All the while, a lame duck Chief Minister refuses to stir from an undeserved siesta.
RTI was not gifted by any political party or any government in India. In fact, majority of the politicians and political parties silently opposed, disrupted and delayed RTI implementation.

One of the saddest and most overlooked tales in history is the demise of the Native American population during the late 1400s in North America. It could be argued that if the Native Americans were not already divided amongst themselves, they could have successfully resisted colonial efforts of the Europeans.
During a recent trip to Bihar, I discovered that only fifty km from the capital city of Patna is a city and a district named after Bakhtiar Khilji, the ruthless killer who destroyed Nalanda and other centers of learning, burning over ten thousand scholars alive in the process.
An era in political and social life of Bihar came to an end on December 19th with the passing away of Bihar's revered 'Bachchi Jee' (Kishori Sinha). It marked the end of a spectacular socio-political journey of more than seven glorious decades of a stateswoman who stood tall among her contemporaries.
India is a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic Republic. Fortunately our democracy has been successful during all these years largely because of the fact that the people in general are secular, tolerant and law abiding. As a matter of fact, success of secular democracy, a sacred principle, depends on the wisdom and sagacity of the people. It is unfortunate that sometimes during elections people indulge in divisive activities based on religion, caste and creed.
It has been almost a decade since it happened, but the horrors of the Bush presidency seem like they happened yesterday. It was a dark age in the history of America. War profiteers turned a terrorist attack into a global crisis which resulted in severe damage to humanity – both within and without the United States.
Media has changed substantially over the last several decades. Sadly, despite the incorporation of new and advanced technologies that changed media for the better, the noble mission of media – especially its role in a democracy, appears to have gotten lost somewhere along the way.
दीपावली की रात जेल से भागे 8 आतंकवादी जो कि प्रतिबंधित संगठन सिमी से ताल्लुक रखते थे उन्हें मध्यप्रदेश पुलिस 8 घंटे के भीतर मार गिराने के लिए बधाई की पात्र है । बधाई स्थानीय लोगों को भी जिन्होंने पुलिस की मदद कर के देशभक्ति का परिचय देते हुए किसी बड़ी आतंकवादी घटना रोकने में प्रशासन की मदद की। देश में यह एन्काउन्टर अपने आप में शायद ऐसा पहला आप्रेशन है जिसमें पुलिस ने फरार होने के आठ घंटों के अन्दर ही सभी आतंकवादियों को मार गिराया हो ।
