Divided media cannot provide justice to Gauri Lankesh


If we have failed to raise our voice as effectively as we should have in previous instances of violence against journalists, then the time to change that is now: If we stay silent and disunited, there will be more Gauri Lankeshs who will pay the price for our collective failure.READ

Triple Talaq is moment of truth for secular liberals


The BJP may well claim that it is standing by Muslim progressives but their stand is misleading. After all, isn’t this the same party which has been insisting that faith be placed above the law in the contentious Ram Janmabhoomi case?READ

AAP and the end of hope


Ironically, it is the BJP’s obsessive Modi-centric approach that provides parties like AAP another opportunity for course correction, says RAJDEEP SARDESAI.READ

When 'fringe' becomes mainstream: Hindu vote has arrived


Will Adityanath in power do a Modi and transform his militant Hindutva image? Like Modi, he too is now being projected as a tough, no-nonsense administrator, strong on law and order, says RAJDEEP SARDESAI.READ

Can Opposition take on Modi in 2019?


The crude attempt to capture power in states like Goa and Manipur may also trap the BJP in its own smugness. But till then, the Opposition is better advised to get its own act together rather than be in a constant reactive, wait and watch mode, says RAJDEEP SARDESAI.READ

Goa gone with 'Money-Pur'


The Congress has done it in the past, now the BJP is just as adroit at playing the 'Aya Ram, Gaya ram' game (or in Goa in the past described as 'aya D'souza, Gaya D'souza!), says RAJDEEP SARDESAI.READ

Lotus could bloom in UP


Twenty-four years later, I am putting my neck on the line once again and forecasting a likely BJP win in Uttar Pradesh, says RAJDEEP SARDESAI.READ

Will Politics shrink in 2017?


Politics in 2017 needs to find a way to evolve into something more meaningful than just sharp slogans and high-pitched rhetoric aimed at wooing gullible voters. The global rise of populist demagogues like Donald Trump suggests a growing fatigue with political correctness and liberal values.READ

Demonetisation: Modi risks winning Battle, losing War


For how long will Mr Modi ride on individual charisma without ushering in greater legal and institutional reform? READ

Family First politics


Such family-run parties survive so long as the “supremo” is alive and is able to exercise his authority over competing party factions. But what happens when the leader at the top begins to lose his grip? READ

Rajdeep, interesting piece, well presented and you need to take a bow on this one.

Somehow, I, beginning to like your written pieces (and am sure a lot of others are too) instead of the screeching fast paced pieces on the television. I must say you have posed questions that really require courage-something that you have done very often in the past. The point of how money power works, interestingly it is not only in India but in the western world and involves all religions. No doubt it is a shadow promotion of Hinduism, credit is also given where it deserves to be shed. Could it be that Sri Sri is taking a few lessons from the many Christian preachers in the US and also the few that are mushrooming in India as well?

You picked on many categories of people- and rightly so, however, i missed to read anything about any high profile member of the 'heavenly' 4th state. is it that none of them were present and not "Privileged"? if that is indeed true than we as a nation are heading in the right direction.

Thank you once again.
