Russia and India: 70 years together - Vladimir Putin, Times of India
This year, we are celebrating the anniversary of a truly historic event. Seventy years ago – on April 13, 1947 – the governments of the USSR and India announced their decision to establish official missions in Delhi and Moscow. This step on our part logically followed up on our course for assisting India on its way to national liberation and contributed to strengthening its independence. In the decades that have followed, our bilateral partnership has further intensified and strengthened... Read Full Article››
Thumbs up to Modinomics - Sanju Verma, Pioneer
In what can be called the biggest endorsement of Modinomics, last week, India became the world’s sixth largest economy as its GDP, which stood at $2.597 trillion, surpassed that of France that stood at $2.582. More good news poured in the form of India’s 57th ranking in the Global Innovation Index in a poll covering more than 125 countries across 81 parameters — a massive improvement from the 76th rank in 2013-14. Meanwhile, the BSE-30 Sensex hit a lifetime high last week...

The sharp retreat of Indian democracy since Modi’s election - Shoaib Daniyal, Scroll
Narendra Modi was elected prime minister of India in May 2014. For more than a decade before that, he had the image of a Right-wing strongman and his election elicited concern from many quarters about the fate of Indian democracy – concerns that continued and, in many cases, got sharper as the Bharatiya Janata Party settled into the Union government and proceeded to capture state governments across a large swathe of India.

Lessons from dark times - M Venkaiah Naidu, Indian Express
“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall…” said the apostle of peace, Mahatma Gandhi. These prophetic words came true more than four decades ago when the people of India rose against a tyrannical onslaught on the foundational principles of Indian democracy. Dissent and disagreement were replaced with suppression and sycophancy as an atmosphere akin...

The strength of India-Russia strategic relations will be enhanced by supporting the work of talented individuals from both countries in all aspects of human endeavour  to give direction to the future development of bilateral relations in the 21st Century.

Decoding Modi magic post-Karnataka - Rinku Ghosh, Pioneer
ust before the elections in Karnataka, when there was gathering skepticism about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s chaste Hindi breaking through the language barrier in the South, observers were not sure if he could spin his wand of magic. Although he had been mentioning Kannadiga icons in his speeches over the last few months, regional chauvinism was frankly somewhat of a wall. All depended on his local translator Ganesh Yahyaji.

India’s diplomatic victories - A Prabaharan, Pioneer
It is but natural for a divisive polity and diverse society such as India to villainise the head of the nation. But Modi has weathered all political storms and has come clean to ensure the success of his vision. I don’t have any love for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. But as an Indian who is committed to safeguarding and promoting the values of the Indian Constitution, I am keen to support the positive initiatives of the Prime Minister. In a society, which is highly divisive, politically hot...

Lotus is still in full bloom - Bindu Dalmia, Pioneer
Is the Lotus in half-bloom? Not really. I begin with a trace of hope  but tinged with deeper despair as one reflects on recent political events. Sentiments have unmistakably turned hostile towards the ruling establishment in a week’s span when a ‘post-Mods’ India was unthinkable six months back. A series of setbacks for the BJP- led NDA alliance are consequences of the by-election defeats; the images of pathos that stir one’s conscience as the multitude of satyagrahi farmers marched to Mumbai in the peaceful Kisan morcha...

Conserve every drop - Venkaiah Naidu, Hindu
The grave water situation in Cape Town in South Africa is a wake-up call to everybody across the globe — from policymakers to the common man — that it cannot be business as usual when it comes to water usage. A similar crisis is looming large in other cities in the world as people continue to be reckless in their use of water. The situation is so worrisome that 12 world leaders — 11 heads of state and a special adviser of a high-level panel on water — wrote an open letter...

BJP the new Sarkar in Tripura - Times of India
It took a relentless two-and-a-half-year campaign to dislodge a party that had held sway for 25 years. With its focus on outgoing chief minister Manik Sarkar’s failure to implement the Seventh Pay Commission and growing unemployment, political violence and corruption, BJP seemed to lay siege to CPI. In the first direct fight between BJP and the Left, the saffron party wasn’t expected to pull ahead — until a few weeks ago. BJP, which did not have a representative even at the councillor level...

Rahul Gandhi’s ‘temple run’ - Narayani Ganesh, Times of India
Going on a vote yatra is a very good thing. A political candidate who hopes to win an election has to not only go through the motions of connecting to would-be voters, he needs to demonstrate empathy with what is close to their hearts. And what better way than seeking darshan at a temple or offering prayers at a mosque or church? These are places suffused with deep invocation and prayer, whose paths are lined with the faith, dreams, hopes and aspirations of the people, and especially of the desperate.
