Antara Dev Sen

The politics of hurt sentiments

Is censorship good? Wait, dear reader, do not recoil in horror. Think about it. Of course not, you say? Well then why is it necessary to have a film censor board in this day and age?

How politics is falling from grace

The time for polite politics appears to be decidedly over. This week, a Union minister has been calling non-Hindus illegitimate.

Democracy of disgust

The personal is political. And the political is personal too. Only the incurably innocent or doggedly somnambulant would refuse to recognise this.

It has now become apparent to the Narendra Modi government that the manner in which it sought to amend the law relating to acquisition of land is not politically feasible.

If a law has not worked well on the ground, do you toss it out or try and improve its implementation?
