Congress on Downhill Slide: Act or Perish

|| by MOHAN SAHAY ||
Ground is sleeping beneath the feet of the Congress Party. To keep the flock under one roof is a different thing and to lead the Nation is quite another. To me it appears that Sonia Gandhi has picked up her advisors wrong. Once she decided and rightly so, that she will nothold the office of Prime Minister of India, her obvious next step was to promote her sibling in politics.


प्रमोद जोशी ने लिखा- 'मशहूर होने की पत्रकारिता'

बरखा दत्त की पत्रकारिता शैली और साहस की तारीफ होती है। वे करगिल तक गईं और धमाकों के बीच रिपोर्टिंग की। न्यूयार्क टाइम्स ने इस मामले पर एक रपट प्रकाशित की है जिसमें बरखा दत्त के बारे में जानकारी देते वक्त उस उत्साह का विवरण दिया है जो उन्हें विरासत में मिला है।

The People Friendly Police?

Since inception of the state, the Jharkhand government has been carrying on anti-naxal operations and building up the people friendly police in the state simultaneously. In the recent development, Neyaz Ahmed, the director general of police and the executive officer of the ‘operation green hunt’, who is also the first top cop in the history of Jharkhand to get promotion after retirement, has promised to make his police men the ‘people friendly’.

सभी ताल ठोकतें हैं कि अयोध्या हमारी है। यही वह दावा है जिसने अयोध्या की ऊर्जा को सोख लिया है। पिछले दो दशक से मंदिर-मस्जिद के नाम पर हुई सियासत ने जीवन की तमाम खूबसूरती को छीन लिया है। शालीनता और धैर्य की चादर में लिपटी इस ऐतिहासिक नगरी में विकास का पहिया ऐसा थमा है कि लगातार पिछड़ता ही चला गया है।
