The era of nationalistic leaders followed the onset of superhero movies. However this may come to an end with the pandemic.

Leaders & Change
Leaders are born into change, defined by change and needs to lead by change.
A truth(less) world
The other day while glancing through the website of my alma mater I chanced across a headline that read like this. ‘Trustworthy advice for a post-truth world’. It was an interesting headline one that made me think for sometime. Disruption is an act of nature. If you see the world around us, everything is inContinue reading “A truth(less) world”
If the war on terror dominated the headlines in the beginning decade of this century, the issue of climate change will dominate for the foreseeable future.
Politics: Left, Right, Straight, etc.
I have followed politics since the time I can remember yet I was never enamored by it. My FB profile states me as a ‘Liberal by mind and a Conservative’ by heart. I have spend a lot of time in my life trying to understand what is the difference between both the right and leftContinue reading “Politics: Left, Right, Straight, etc.”
Religion and Politics
There is a certain truth in the teachings of great men like Valmiki, Gautama Buddha, Jesus, Prophet Muhammad etc. There is absolutely no truth in the religions that carry their name because if one looks within these organised groups, it is the insatiable hunger and appetite for controlling humans and extracting maximum capital from their vulnerabilities.

#AAPCon or #AAPOpportunity
I still believe that AAP has a glowing chance to rebound. They need to stop this relentless and merciless media posturing and shut themselves from everything and everyone to re-define clear objectives and ideals. A strong centre-to-left or left leaning agenda needs to be developed and showcased to the Indian population and diaspora. They need to build a party of strong anti-corrupt foundation that returns democracy to the electorate.
Why politics needs reform…
Someone once said that politics is the last resort for scoundrels. Today world over, this saying has been painfully more than accurate. Being in civilian politics these days, is never a profession to brag about. Why are the politicians so hated? First they come to you during the time of elections begging for votes. TheyContinue reading “Why politics needs reform…”
What does Modi’s coronation mean for India?
Last Friday, September 13th 2013, the chief minister of Gujarat, Shri. Narendra Modi was crowned as the BJP’s presidential candidate for 2014 General Election. This decision by the principal opposition party of India to anoint a highly polarizing figure of Indian politics, has been welcomed across the country with jubilation and acclaim. Ten years ago,Continue reading “What does Modi’s coronation mean for India?”
