Two time zones, one India: Good idea! - Kushan Mitra, Pioneer
Far too many people in India operate in a time zone that is not an appropriate diurnal cycle for them. Adopting two time zones for India is something that the Government ought to consider and look to implement.
Caste, religion politics rejected - Shivaji Sarkar, Pioneer
The massive victories have laden the BJP-led Governments with heavy responsibilities. They now have to ensure the growth of all States, particularly Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. These would be showpieces for the country. The faster they do it, the better.
How BJP won hearts & minds in UP - Sanjay K Pandey, Shashank Chaturvedi & David N Gellner, Pioneer
As perception of cronyism, nepotism and misgovernance about the SP and the BSP remained intact during the poll campaign, the BJP, being absent from power in UP for long, filled in the vacuum. Moreover, Modi’s image as selfless politician, an effective administrator and a great nationalist, who is committed to sabka saath, sabka vikas, was unmatched by the SP whose politics was discredited as “minority appeasement”
Threat from Islamic State is near and real - Hiranmay Karlekar, Pioneer
The explosion in the Bhopal-Ujjain train, which injured 10 persons, on March 7, and the events following in its wake, merit attention. Carried out by a group of young men owing allegiance to the Islamic State’s (IS) Khorasan module, the incident warrants reflection on two aspects. The first is what the incident indicates about the nature and dimension of the threat India faces from this Islamist terrorist outfit. The second is the devising of a strategy to neutralise it.
The more he fails, the more he's hailed! - Rajesh Singh, Pioneer
A charitable observation on the Congress’s massive defeat in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand would be that, like everybody else, it failed to read the strong wave of support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party.
From Kamandal Versus Mandal To Kamandal Plus Mandal - Anirudh Sharma, Pioneer
The latest election result in Uttar Pradesh poses a question on how the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) got it right, despite failing in Bihar. The reason for drawing this comparison emerges from the fact that the complexion of democracy in both the States is predominantly influenced by  Mandal and Kamandal politics.
Rope in youth for 2019 LS battle, exhorts PM - Deepak K Upreti, Pioneer
The unprecedented poll mandate in the largest State of Uttar Pradesh and that in Uttarakhand has put the BJP on the fast track as it gears up for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday asking his party leaders to reach out to Dalits and the youth and make them ambassadors of the Government’s welfare schemes and policies.
The voterís new religion - M Venkaiah Naidu, Indian Express
The historic mandate in Uttar Pradesh is a watershed moment in India’s electoral history. The poisonous cocktail of caste and communal politics was swept away by the Modi tsunami, with the BJP’s landslide victory stunning political pundits and media commentators alike.
A PM like Indira Gandhi - Ashutosh Varshney, Indian Express
The BJP’s monumental electoral triumph in Uttar Pradesh, especially after a massive victory in the state’s parliamentary elections in 2014, invites reflection on two important political concepts: Dominance and hegemony. The BJP’s political dominance is now a commonplace observation, but some of the most thoughtful political commentators have also started speaking of BJP’s hegemony.
Changing dynamics in defence - Pravin Sawhney, Pioneer
Given that the constitutional authority for India’s defence rests with the civilian Defence Secretary, his own political weightlessness and little experience of working with a complex bureaucracy, his tendency to speak more than he should, Parrikar seems delighted with the demotion.
