A wise, or is it simply realistic, quip goes… you do not get justice in our courts, what you get in our courts is called justice. It is now becoming impossible to defend our judiciary even through such play of words. The latest case concerns about 400-odd occupants of five flat complexes in a small township called Marad, in Kochi. The flats fall in the...

Little suggests that fabulously wealthy Gulf states and their Middle Eastern and North African beneficiaries have recognized what is perhaps the most important lesson of this year’s popular uprisings in Algeria and Sudan and the 2011 Arab revolts: All that glitters is not gold. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and to a lesser extent Kuwait have in the ...

A stunning question just popped into my head this morning: “What is it international terrorist groups hope to gain?” Looking at the whole concept of Bush II’s “War on Terror” – I cannot help but wonder if there would be any crisis at all if my country withdrew totally from the world stage. Could it be that my country is the only hurdle standing in the way of...

Scholar and author Manoj Das (2018) narrates his experience of visiting Vyas Gumpha (Cave of Vyasa), off Badrinath, where Krishna Dwaipayana Vyasa dictated the Mahabharata to his scribe, Ganesha. This was sometime in the early 1970s, when the impact of Chinese aggression was yet to be neutralized (This road is a Himalayan blunder, The New Indian...

Western special interests have used the term “fake news” as a pretext for widening censorship, particularly across US-based social media networks like Facebook and Twitter as well as across Google’s various platforms. In a move of political judo, many nations are citing the threat of “fake news” to in turn deal with media platforms, often funded and supporte...

After two and a half years in power, President Donald Trump is about to impose his views on the Pentagon. The one who put an end to Daesh’s “Sunnistan” plan is to end the Rumsfeld / Cebrowski doctrine of destroying state structures in the wider Middle East. If it succeeds, peace will return to the region as well as to the Caribbean Basin. However, the people...

“We as a nation, as a family, have taken a historic decision. A system due to which brothers and sisters of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh were deprived of many rights and which was a big obstacle to their development, that system has been done away with”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his address to the Nation on August 8, post the reorganisation of the s...

Bulldogs are notorious for their tenacity or “cool persistency of purpose”, as Honest Abe said of General Grant, “He has the grip of a bulldog; when he once gets his teeth in, nothing can shake him off”. The EU master class could give the doggies a lockjaw master-class. Many European states have tried to free themselves from the Prison of the European Nation...

Unusual remarks and actions by the outgoing head of the Bank of England and other central banking insiders strongly suggest that there is a very ugly scenario in the works to end the role of the US dollar as world reserve currency. In the process, this would involve that the Fed deliberately triggers a dramatic economic depression. If this scenario is actual...

A controversial former security official and Abu Dhabi-based political operator, Mohammed Dahlan, has lurked for several years in the shadows of Palestinian politics. Now, he could emerge as a monkey wrench in an attempt to pave the way for US president Donald J. Trump’s much maligned ‘deal of the century’ to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Preside...

New balances of power and a new equilibrium are being set up discreetly in the Nile valley, in the Levant and the Arab peninsula. On the contrary, however, the situation is blocked in the Persian Gulf. This considerable and coordinated change is affecting different conflicts which in appearance have no connection with one another. It is the fruit of patient ...

The G7, which was originally a meeting-place for the Western leaders to better understand their respective points of view, has now become a communication platform. Far from sharing their opinions in private, the guests have become actors in a media show in which each of them tries to deliver a convincing performance. The worst moment of this G7 was the surpr...

It used to be done regularly and it worked: The West identified a country as its enemy, unleashed its professional propaganda against it, then administered a series of sanctions, starving and murdering children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups. If the country did not collapse within months or just couple of years, the bombing would begin. And the nat...

Champions of the Aryan Invasion/Migration Theory (AIT) refuse to give up. With virtually nothing to show in support of their pet theory in linguistics, archeology or ancient texts and inscriptions, they keep coming up with new kind of evidence. Tony Joseph’s new book, “Early Indians: The Story of Our Ancestors and Where We Came From”, claims to prove once an...

On August 1, 2019, tonnes of melting water formed on an ice sheet in western Greenland and drained into a moulin – a hole within a glacier /ice sheet from which water from the surface enters the ocean or is contained within a crevasse.

A significant part of US foreign policy rests on the notion of promoting the ‘politics of chaos’ as this chaos, as I pointed out earlier, plays a key role in maintaining US hegemony upon the international stage. The ‘politics of chaos’ is not just a strategy used against rival states and strategic competitors; it is also a display of the US deep-state’s obse...

Claims that Western interests are driving unrest in Hong Kong to undermine China have been decried across the Western media as “fake news,” “disinformation,” and even grounds for censorship from platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Yet a look at the organizations directly involved in leading the unrest and those supporting it reveals unequivocally that it or...

The alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein has become one of the few things the currently very divided US population can broadly agree on. Epstein and his network of friends were so high profile that this alleged sex predator is highly unlikely to have committed suicide. At the very least he was assisted, while someone intentionally turned a blind eye to protect...
