It was just another dusty Saturday morning in Uttar Pradesh's capital, Lucknow. Life was returning to normal, post the aura and magnificence of elections in India's biggest State, UP- as populated as Brazil. The usual noisy days had dawned once again. The noise of loudspeakers and roadshows was replaced by the noise of children running

By censoring a movie, you can't conceal the big drug menace in Punjab.   Today, in Punjab, people are turning to drugs and drinks than to their duties. And to think that the rest of India is unaware about this is being as blinded to reality as Rahul Gandhi is about his leadership skills and

From the early ages of human civilizations, when we controlled almost half of the world’s GDP, to this date, India is a land of the talented and the powerful. After 2 Centuries of ruthless British rule, we were knocked down, but certainly not knocked out. On August 15th, 1947,

In any other democracy, Rahul Gandhi would have seen the end of his political career in 2014.

Just a year ago, the relationship between the world's biggest democracy and the world's oldest democracy was on collision course. The Devyani Khobragade incident had exploded out of proportions and the relations, which became closest during Manmohan Singh's era, seemed to be nearing a bitter period as Singh's era was finishing. 12 months later, we

The message was clear right from the first line of the Budget Speech, the economy needed some serious revival. One may say that it was a very long and safe budget presented by the union finance minister Arun Jaitley in the Parliament today. However, Mr. Jaitley kept the dream of good days alive with his innovative
