Shayad woh galtiyon ka ehsaas kar raha hai
Peeta nahin lahu ab, 'upvaas' kar raha hai
Nafrat ke jism par hai 'sadbhavana' ka chola

Reports say more than 11,000 tonnes of garbage was found at Ramlila Ground after the fast-unto-death cum indefinite fast cum free-for-all carnival reached a cathartic climax.

There is a cynical stream of consciousness stalking the Indian landscape, angry and angst-ridden, seething with disgust at the web of corruption which has trapped the regime, the system, and Indian democracy. Shifting moments in public perception, or the apolitical stance of a vacillating middle and upper middle class, cannot really provide that Machiavellian moment of relief to the regime, when it might still appear to be democratic, even as it actually operates on multiple undemocratic paradigms.

The white, vicious, inevitable heat arrived in concealed slow motion, like a rattlesnake in an unwinding desert with no visions or hallucinations or illusions of an oasis, slithering and gliding in

Let's not forget he is still in jail, in solitary confinement, outside the 'national debate' on ethics and absence of ethics post Wikileaks, forgotten by the Indian Parliament, and the 'secular' ru

Even the American empire, which has compulsively backed most of the retrograde, repressive, ruthless monarchies and dictatorships in the Middle East, are surprised.

Trust the BJP to go for a most retrograde form of protest and choose a conflict zone geography where the wounds of the 110 young men shot dead by the police are still so alive, raw

No sophistry, no jugglery in figures can explain away the evidence that the skeletons in many villages present to the naked eye.

As I write this, the blackout is breaking, and so is the curfew in our television and newspaper spaces. They will have to break it. They can't block it anymore. This censorship will be broken.
