Every year, at Drishtikone, we analyze the coming year for three nations - Indian, US, and Pakistan. In my view, for our purposes, these three nations are very important. One, because it is the Indian perspective that this blog shows while discussing and talking of Hinduism. US, because it is the most important country in the world. And Pakistan because it is the nation that had had and will have far reaching consequences for the region and the world. This year, I wanted to use this … [Read more...]
“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act” - George Orwell In September 1999, Dr. Manmohan Singh was addressing the Press Club of India as a candidate from South Delhi. Being a Sikh, and that too from Congress, he wanted to make a statement about the Sikh Massacres of 1984. It should not have happened, he said. However, the entire massacres were orchestrated by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and not Congress, he suggested. After all, why would … [Read more...]
The whole country knows. The world knows. But somehow the Congress Party has been pretending to not know it. But now the Joker of the Pack - Digvijaya Singh - also exclaimed in that Freudian slip, something equivalent to "The King has no clothes".

Steven Wilkinson of the Duke University has authored a detailed paper on Violence and Riots in India. The raw data has been published in the paper titled: Varshney-Wilkinson Dataset on Hindu-Muslim Violence in India, 1950-1995, Version 2.

Interesting... someone is spying on BJP leaders and the corporate leaders and this same guy was already in the dock for spying on Amar Singh! So, who promised to "save" this guy from the law when arrested for the Amar Singh case? The suspicion is obviously towards the Congress leaders. The question is will we ever know?
