Vohra IN, Jethmalani (get) OUT 

Romeet K WATT


New Delhi has eventually appointed the long-awaited interlocutor to commence parleys with the elected representatives of the J&K state legislative assembly and the separatist bandwagon, including All Party Hurriyat Conference (APHC). N N Vohra, former Home Secretary is the Centre’s choice. The other names .......More >>>>

Musharraf’s humanitarian order!

Atal Bihari Vajpayee


We are at a critical point in international relations. Perhaps we are also at a defining moment in the life of this Movement itself. We are seeking to revitalize its agenda in a global environment profoundly different from that in which it was created. The tectonic shifts in international relations over the last decade .......More >>>>

K Ps, groping in a lightless tunnel

Sreeram Chaulia


“India lacks a national policy or institutional legal framework concerning internally displaced persons. Moreover, the government systematically refers to internally displaced persons as 'migrants'. At the same time, India shuns international scrutiny and thereby denies international humanitarian access to internally displaced.”  ......More >>>>

Mufti Sayeed, the real test is ahead!

Romeet K WATT


One thing conundrums most observers, who keep an eye on the turn of events in Kashmir. How is Mufti Sayeed able to accomplish the impossible, when it comes to dealing with the Deputy Prime Minister, L K Advani. Take for instance, the release of pro-Pakistan separatist leader, Syed Shah Gilani. New Delhi had .......More >>>>

Kashmir: Tryst with destiny

Romeet K WATT


This happens to be India’s 56th year of independence. A landmark, although fifty-six years is an exceedingly small an epoch in nation’s history bearing in mind, our civilisation dates back to over eight thousand years. A multi-religious, multi-ethnic polity like India, which did not at any point of time have communal power sharing.......More >>>>

Meeting emerging security challenges

Kanwal Sibal


International terrorism poses a grave challenge both to India and the United States. We have been facing it for many years, but it was considered our problem, a product of the unresolved India-Pakistan confrontation. Those behind it were not seen as a threat to the USA or the West and early signals that  that this insouciance ......More >>>>

Iraqi crisis & subdued Indian response

Sawraj Singh


The Iraqi crisis is becoming more serious every day. It seems that President Bush has already decided that Saadam has to go and a pro-American government has to be installed in Iraq, which will give the control of oil to American oil companies. This will ensure continuation of the unipolar world order led by America. Because by .......More >>>>

For Musharraf, the clock is ticking

Subhash Kapila


General Pervez Musharraf, currently military ruler of Pakistan was brought into power in October 1999 by an “in-abstentia” military coup by the Pakistan Army.  This is the first point that needs to be established, analytically, namely that General Musharraf was brought into power by an “Islamic Fundamentalist” coterie  .....More >>>>

Musings on secularism

T R Jawahar


The journalistic judges, the wise men of the secular media, obviously deem themselves superior to the judicial judges. Otherwise, how else could one describe their temerity in pre-empting a pending judgement in the Allahabad High Court that has ordered an excavation at Ayodhya? These super judges, editorial eminences.......More >>>>

"Grave threat" to India's internal security

Anil Narendra


Internal security in our country is of great concern today because of the regular and unabated proxy war launched by Pakistan. The Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister, Shri L.K. Advani says that Paskistan’s only goal is to destablize the democratic and secular fabric of our nation as it cannot live with such a system .......More >>>>
