My column about the central government’s U-turn on the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose death mystery. BJP used the matter for political mileage and when the sea appeared calm, it resorted to the decade-old Congress theory that Bose was killed in a plane crash. Isn’t it the BJP’s apology to the Congress party?
My column about Prashant Bhushan’s mention that Krishna was an eve-teaser. Isn’t he a terrorist then, as it may not be totally wrong if someone argues that some of his actions have abetted terrorism. The yardsticks are the same, by the way.
My column explaining why Gurmehar Kaur’s views on her martyred father are nonsensical. Doesn’t she know war was just a means for his martyrdom and that he fought for the larger interests of the country?
My column about what our political leaders should learn from Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s stepping down as captain of the Indian team.
My column about the political snarl that Akhilesh Yadav finds himself in due to mistimed political choices and deep-rooted nepotism. He can continue his supporting act, force his colleagues into a consensus, or split the Samajwadi Party vote bank. The last two options will prove his supremacy over his father, which the father knows very clearly.
My column about the Supreme Court order to make the playing of national anthem mandatory in cinema halls. Stupid move; why theatres of all places?
My column about the government’s move to ban high value legal tenders from midnight of November 8. Good move, but the introduction of ₹2000 notes does not appear sensible. Government must think about cashless economy.
My column about the information I secured from IAAF, which is sufficient to dismiss OP Jaisha’s claims about the missing water stations at the Rio Olympics.
My column about the Rio Olympics water station scandal, which is not as simple as it appears.
My column on the wonderful Malayalam film An Off-Day Game (Ozhivudivasathe Kali). Attempts like this give meaning to the experience called cinema.
My column on the what one understands from the arrogant remarks of Smriti Irani at the Bihar education minister’s mention of “dear Smriti ji” in a tweet. Such distinctly below-the-belt punches will only strengthen the doubts about her educational qualification.
My column on the upcoming Assembly elections in Kerala. UDF to retain, LDF to regain, and BJP to reassure themselves.
Here’s my column on the prime minister’s remarks of Somalia in reference to the tribals in Kerala and the merit of the controversy that followed. Devoid of political colour, the statement was on target.
My column on the Kollam Puttingal temple fire and the culprits behind the mishap. This was an incident that could have been completely avoided if the police were discharging its duty.
I wrote an article in Mathrubhumi about the meeting the Bose family and Mission Netaji had with the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and the belongings of Gumnami baba, the mysterious hermit, whom many thought was Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose living incognito. The article is in Malayalam.
