India in the age of bread and circus - Siddharth Singh, Mint
It is the age of powerlessness at the Centre. For all practical purposes, a lame duck Manmohan Singh is presiding over a system where chief ministers call the shots. Nearly a dozen chief ministers, led by Mamata Banerjee, may have just ensured the freezing of the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC). And if any proof of the Union government’s weakness was required, the Prime Minister provided it himself. Read Full Article››
Breaking the status quo - M Venkaiah Naidu, Hindu
Change is the key for progress. Fulfilling the dream of Resurgent India through a series of reformatory initiatives has been the leitmotif of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi ever since it was swept to power. From introducing a biometric attendance system for government employees, to selecting unsung heroes for the Padma awards, to ensuring transparency in the funding of political parties, the Prime Minister is seeking to transform the mindset of individuals...

America's new tirade against Islamic State - Hiranmay Karlekar, Pioneer
Undoubtedly, for the US President, defeating the Islamic State is the highest priority. But Donald Trump does not have an easy road ahead, which runs through complex situations, posing problems difficult to resolve. Almost immediately after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, the White House’s official website reiterated his position on foreign policy and identified defeating the Islamic State (ISIS) and other terrorist groups as his “highest priority.”

Re-evaluating Netaji’s legacy, contribution - Sandhya Jain, Pioneer
Recent years have seen an increase in the biographies of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, but these have failed to examine his contribution as a military leader and strategist, and tacitly treat him as a failure because the Indian National Army’s (INA) fate was intricately linked with that of Japan, which lost in the Second World War. Major General GD Bakshi has filled this vacuum with his book, Bose: An Indian Samurai. Netaji and the INA: A Military Assessment (Knowledge World, 2016)...

Rise of the new Right world over - Anirban Banerjee, Pioneer
Never before has any election in one country ever had such a polarising effect on world politics. Never had the US establishment been so unequivocally and solidly backed a candidate. And yet, Hillary Clinton, the US presidential candidate, lost to Donald J Trump, the 45th President of the US. The media strongly backed her. Out of the 100 most circulated newspapers, 57 of them had openly endorsed her and another three had called for Trump’s defeat.

Akhilesh takes on dad, uncle - Biswajeet, Pioneer
The warmth among members of Samajwadi Party’s first family evaporated in the winter chill as Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday released his own list of 235 candidates for the UP Assembly election after his father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav denied tickets to his loyalists, including three Ministers, in the first list of 325 candidates released on Wednesday. Though the 235 candidates list of Akhilesh was not issued officially and it was put in the public domain through social media...

Modi is attacking the currency of corruption - MJ Akbar, Times of India
The rationale for the most transformative event of 2016 is uncomplicated. All cash transactions are not corrupt. But every corrupt transaction is in cash. High denomination notes are the currency of corruption. If you want to challenge corruption root and branch you cannot merely trim the branches periodically to appease public opinion. You have to attack the curse at the roots. Corruption is the mechanism through which a section of our elite has poisoned the credibility of our nation’s political and economic edifice.

Did Rahul Gandhi study UPA figures before attacking Narendra Modi govt? - Debobrat Ghose, FirstPost
Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on 8 November, the quoting of financial figures and jargon has become common to the extent that people at chowrahas (public squares) too have begun to talk like bankers. Most of it is being used to target the tardy implementation of the move. The latest figure to use these figures against Modi is the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi...

Towards a cleaner society - Rahul Kansal, Times of India
Over the past weeks one has witnessed scathing criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation scheme in large sections of media. Much of the criticism rightly blasts the inept quality of implementation; as well as the (terribly under-estimated, in all likelihood) blow to economic activity, in the short term. In the process, critics have also tended to write off any potential long term benefits of the scheme. “Cash is barely 6% of unaccounted assets, what real difference will it make?...
