Is Modi 2019 a done deal? - Chetan Bhagat, Times of India
Last week, BJP won big in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand assembly elections. The extent of its victory was not expected by pollsters or even by BJP itself. In these two states BJP won 381 of the 473 seats, or over 80% of the total. It wasn’t all good news for BJP. The party and its ally SAD lost in Punjab. BJP also failed to reach a majority in Goa and Manipur, although it did manage to form governments in both states. However, the win in UP alone was far bigger than losses in smaller states.

Trouble-makers, on the streets and outside - Khursheed Wani, Pioneer
On February 23, Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat took an unscheduled flight from New Delhi to hurriedly land in Srinagar. Only a few top-ranking officers in the Northern Command and XV Corps headquarters knew about his arrival, necessitated by an overnight militant ambush in Shopian that killed three soldiers and injured five others, including two officers.

Creating value by investing in people - Raghubar Das, CM Jharkhand, Financial Express
I come from a state as vibrant as Jharkhand and with a mission to empower the state to make a difference to the quality of lives of our people. This is not to say that there exists with us a magic wand. There are challenges along the way, but as long as the end goal is clear, it becomes easier to stay steadfast and firm, taking small steps and at times giant strides for effective change. Inherent leadership issues at the state level, which could not cope with growing unrest and aspirations of the people...

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.
