Field Report

No Dramatic Change In The PM’s Constituency

There is not much to write home about Narendra Modi’s parliamentary constituency in 2019. There are vocal supporters and vocal critics, more vocal critics now than there were in 2014. But there is an air of fear all over. Shopkeepers praise Modi and they lament that there is not much business. Academics refuse to speak on record. People complain there is an ugly sales pitch and culture is reduced to kitsch. But they do not lay the blame at the door of Modi. Those who grumble against him end up voting for him. Varanasi has no alternative to Modi

East’s Femme Fatale

The Stage Manager

The Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha has grossly ignored his constituency, Karur, barring setting up one hundred drama stages, hardly ever used

Fate Readers Of Power

The Post-Modern Politician

He is what in chemistry called ‘free radicals’... unconventional, honest, witty and dedicated to his constituency

The Middle Men

The media complains of ‘curtailing freedom of press,’ but it has also done itself in by indulging in power broking and profiteering, as the two worst examples of recent times show

377 Decriminalised, But Where From Here?

If I want to marry my lover, under which section will I do it?” & many such questions yet remain unanswered

Singing Bogus Facts

Ummeed to thee ki kuch badlega kyonki vo toh gaon ki haalat bhi jaante hai… hamari hi bhasha bolte hai phir bhi kuch khas nahin hua” – Purvanchali woman
