THE EDITORIALS

  • Politicizing Patriotism

    Politicizing Patriotism May 2016 - “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” (“May Mother India be victorious”) shouldn’t be controversial words in India! But the right wingers insist that every Indian must proclaim those words to prove patriotism.

  • A Political Party in Shambles

    A Political Party in Shambles April 2016 - The GOP is a dysfunctional mess, hijacked by loudmouths and haters, with a potential nominee more like a roadside hooligan than a contestant for the most responsible political office in the world.

  • Of Apple Pie and Curry

    Of Apple Pie and Curry January 2016 - Who is more hardworking, the American or the Indian?...Confused? That’s the thing about stereotypes: they are inherently contextual, often contrasting, and rarely conclusive--shapeshifters!

  • ISIS, the American Right, and Hindutva

    ISIS, the American Right, and Hindutva December 2015 - Extremists see themselves as righteous, morally superior, and God’s chosen ones. The consequence is the want to annihilate the “other,” who “obviously” is on the wrong side.

  • The Beef Nazis

    The Beef Nazis November 2015 - The following hypothetical question may seem absurd and extreme, but it is precisely the question that needs to be posed to the Hindu mob which, in a ruthless lynching incident, killed 52-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq Saifi, a Muslim, for allegedly eating beef: Would you do business with the killers of your mother? For that matter, why would you have anything to do with the killers of your mother?

  • CONFEDERATE HERITAGE vs. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY

    CONFEDERATE HERITAGE vs. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY August 2015 - While my respect for the three Civil War leaders depicted on Stone Mountain, as brave men willing to die for their cause, has never receded, I can’t say the same for their cause or ideology.

  • Demystifying Yoga

    Demystifying Yoga July 2015 - Yoga can transform our lives—the mental, physical, and psychical transformations are profound—but yoga is not a religious activity.

  • Of Perceptions and Stereotypes

    Of Perceptions and Stereotypes June 2015 - Entrenched patriarchy is the norm among the rural masses of a large swath of the country. But establishment India—what drives the nation—is not so deeply colored by patriarchy.

  • Guest Editorial: The Taste of Justice

    Guest Editorial: The Taste of Justice May 2015 - After almost 10 years, Annamalai (aka Dr. Commander Selvam Siddhar) was sentenced to 27 years for 34 counts of fraud, obstruction of justice, money laundering, conspiracy, and more.

  • The Sureshbhai Patel Police Incident: Keeping it Real

    The Sureshbhai Patel Police Incident: Keeping it Real March 2015 - Swift corrective (as much as possible) action for Sureshbhai Patel came from the evidence of his absolute innocence, leaving the police with absolutely nothing to justify their violence.
