“Sonia-Ben’s Politics” – An Appraisal

I had been slightly despondent at not seeing till yesterday “Sonia Ben” move herself into action.

    India’s Tryst with Destiny

     Since that historic speech in 1947 on the 15th of August India has come a long way. Right from the honeymoon period of 1950′s, to the turbulent 1960′s, to the angry 1970′s, to the tumultuous 80′s leading in to the aspirational 90′s and early 2000′s, India has been through a...

    The rise of the right liberal Indian

    Does the hitherto undefined and seemingly contradictory “right liberal” vote bank house the majority of Modi’s new “rurban youth” support base and does this explain part of the phenomenon called “Modi wave” ?
