As a conscious citizen watching the unfolding of the soap from Bihar, I am constrained to do some hard talk because all these worthies are playing with my life and my children’s.

And communal venom has no anti-venom. It is deadly.
When the demand for water exceeds available supply, it results in water scarcity. We are procreating so fast that three times more freshwater availability can’t meet our avarice. Droughts are hard to avert but their effects can be mitigated. The price of preparedness is minimal compared to the cost of disaster relief. Let us therefore shift […]
Even if you give a dog water in a gold bowl, it will lap it up rather than drink because it is its nature. With apology for using a canine analogy, this reporter wants to point out the ugly sight of an uprooted well-equipped traffic umbrella given to traffic police at the Nizam college grounds. […]

Newspapers of the future might well carry advertisements addressed to young married couples, says futurist writer Alvin Toffler in his seminal work, Future Shock: “Why let parenthood tie you down? Let us raise your infant into a responsible successful adult. Class A Pro-family offer; father age 39, mother 36, grandmother 67, uncle and aunt age […]
There was a time when Parliamentary leaders observed decency of debate and ethicality of comments. The yesteryear greats scrupulously followed it. No longer is it true. Political leaders do not bat an eyelid making obscene comments against each other. TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu (CBN), who ruled the State for nine years, is quoted as saying […]
A Lancet survey showed that 49 per cent of men and 11 per cent of women across the world use tobacco in one form or another. It is said by the aficionados of Lady Nicotine that the last puff is better than the first kiss! I heard this often among young gentlemen who had been […]
