Dealing with the cat's paw as a diversion



Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s advice to his partymen at the BJP National Executive meet in Delhi to bring the development agenda of his Government back in focus was a timely attempt to prevent the national discourse from getting lost in non-issues. The way Opposition leaders stirred up the intolerance debate, first at the political level and then by involving student groups in prestigious universities like Jawaharlal Nehru University, exposes how desperate they are to retain their brief moments on the TV screen.

Nehru-Gandhis and poverty



Has dynastic politics kept India poor? This appears to be an unstated assumption of a speech earlier this month by BJP president Amit Shah to the party faithful, and the stated view of many in his party. As the formulation goes, after being ruled by the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty for most of the past seven decades India remains poor. Give BJP 25 years and it will turn India into “Vishwa Guru”, or teacher to the world. Take BJP boasts with a large grain of salt, but there’s more than a kernel of truth to the idea...

Can we stop calling it the Ishrat Jahan fake encounter? It wasn't about her



The Supreme Court was absolutely right to throw out a public interest litigation asking it to stop the trial of the Gujarat policemen alleged to have killed Ishrat Jahan and three alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists in a "fake encounter" in 2004. The status of Ishrat and the other three as terrorists or innocents does not make a "fake" encounter any less "fake" if proved conclusively in a court of law with solid evidence.

Rahul Gandhi's restoration drama



A couple of days ago a few Congress leaders gathered in Uttar Pradesh and held a yagya. Their fervent prayer was to make Priyanka Gandhi the face of assembly elections. Their slogan: "Desh mein Rahul, Pradesh mein Priyanka (Let Rahul lead the country, and Priyanka head the state)." In November when the Congress won the Ratlam by-election with a large majority, its first parliamentary success in Madhya Pradesh in ages, its strength in the Lok Sabha went up a notch, from 44 to 45.

Budgets - the long view



The flood of commentary that follows the presentation of a Union Budget focuses quite naturally on the immediate numbers. However, it is the long view that often proves more educative. Taking the perspective of the last decade, budgetary numbers present some clear trends. To start with, central tax revenue and GDP will have remained in lock step: GDP (at current prices) is expected to have grown 3.4 times over the decade to 2016-17; so is budgeted tax revenue for next year.

The best government for fiscal discipline



Budget 2016-17 has met with near universal approval for its commitment to the path of fiscal consolidation (and focus on agriculture). On deeper investigation, the path of fiscal consolidation for the current fiscal year is even more impressive than credited by experts. As is well known, the accounts for any fiscal year run from April to March. Throughout this article, a fiscal year will be represented by the first year — that is, April 2015 to March 2016 is year 2015.

Why Indians can't write good memoirs



In the land where George Orwell was born, writes Jaspreet Singh in his 2013 book, Helium, “1984 was never imaginary. In India, it was real.” And it was real, in a most vicious and violent manner. That year saw 3,000 Sikhs being massacred in Delhi within three days just because the two assassins of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi happened to be their co-religionists. Even more unfortunate was what unfolded thereafter. Despite setting up one commission of inquiry after another...
