Democracy asks for a wakeful electorate
K N Pandita India’s tryst with democracy tells us that democracy is likely to be abused rather than gainfully used when left to the voters who are maximally unaware of its pre-requisites. One significant discrepancy of democracy for a multi-religious, multi-lingual and multi-cultural society like that of India is of elected members focusing on regional issues even at the cost of broad national interests.

Those who voted against him have to show him respect precisely in the way in which the opposition member...

The confidence with which the BJP’s top brass in the country led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi plunged into the electoral fray in 2024, belied its expectations, finally, and many say saved the country from falling further into an abyss of intolerance and majoritari...

Despite fighting each other in some States, the I.N.D.I. Alliance managed to maintain pre-poll unity, upholding ‘gathabandhan dharma.’ It is pe...

‘Navreh’ message for the displaced Pandits of Kashmir
K N Pandita The New Year (Navreh = Nava Varsha) of the now displaced community of the Hindus of Kashmir Valley is celebrated according to the Saptrishi calendar entering the 5100th year. This five–thousand–year–old calendar was suddenly discarded and rubbished with the advent of Muslim rule in the mid-14th century.

On a penultimate night, Kashmiri Hindus invariably observe the tradition of filling the platter called ‘thaal bharun'. At least seven items like a handful of ric...
