Indo-Pak Relations

On 18th August 2018, Pakistan appointed its 22nd Prime Minister, Imran Khan. With his tenure, also began a set of speculations- what would the appointment mean for the crumbling Indo-Pak ties?

Let's Not Mix Mythology and Science

While there are new scientific researches taken up every day, new discoveries and more progress being made in the tech world, there are still some sections of our society, or should we say some people, who just love to stay backward. When you are in the age of Higgs Boson research, irrational comments won’t fly. And, when they are made, they’ll be met with an intense backlash. The outcry on scientists claims was natural.

Granted statehood in 1950, Uttar Pradesh (UP) has been among the country’s most popular and key states; key in multiple senses, including national politics. It is the most populous state of India, and hence, the largest vote bank. To top that, Uttar Pradesh is home to the greatest number of Lok Sabha seats i.e. 80. The state is often called the pathway to Parliament, and perhaps, rightly so. With the 2019 Lok Sabha elections beginning [...]Read More

The year might be coming to an end, but there seems to be no stop ahead for the name-changing “train” in the nation.

  Different people would have different things to say about December 17, 2018. What’s so special about that date, one might ask. Well, plenty. Let’s call it a day of ironies, or of juxtaposition. It was the day when Congress had its selected members swearing in as Chief Ministers of three key states- Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh. It was also the day when a historic judgment came from the benches of the Delhi high [...]Read More

2019 Lok Sabha elections

Four years ago, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power with a thumping victory in the Lok Sabha elections. The “Modi wave” was unstoppable, reaching all the way from Gujarat to Parliament Road, New Delhi. And, as they say, empires fall and rise all the time; so, with the rise of BJP, also came the fall of another power dynamics – the Indian National Congress (INC). From running the government in the previous term to [...]Read More

social media and our language

For as long mankind has existed on the planet, one or the other form of communication has existed alongside. Of course, it has gotten more refined over the years, but it has always been around.
