All the rabid Rightwingers with tunnel vision in the English media in India, who worship market fundamentalism like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) worships the anti-god, have suddenly discovered Niyam: the

IF MEMORY MOVES in semi circles, desperately looking for a circle of abstraction to end this repetitive, relentless journey of life's unfinished, finished story, it does not always end in a circle

The wise good men in the empowered group of ministers (sorry, not one woman in this sanctum sanctorum) have suddenly discovered a politically correct shining conscience, that it almost seems imposs
