We did it
We did it -- Europe just banned bee-killing pesticides!! Mega-corporations like Bayer threw everything they had at this, but people-power, science and good governance came out on top!!
Bee "die in" at Bayer's headquarters, Cologne
Vanessa Amaral-Rogers from the specialist conservation organisation Buglife, says:
“It was a close vote, but thanks to a massive mobilisation by Avaaz members, beekeepers, and others, we won! I have no doubt that the floods of phonecalls and emails ... Read More

Monsanto at it again!
It’s unbelievable, but Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to exclusively ‘own’ something that freely belongs to us all -- our food! But if we can pressure key European countries to slam the patent door shut on their destructive plans, we can stop this attack on our food.

A Maldives court just sentenced a 15-year-old rape survivor to 100 whip lashings. By threatening Maldives politicians' precious tourist income we can save this child and stop these outrageous public floggings. Let's quickly build a one million strong call, then place ads in travel magazines and websites:
It's hard to believe, but a 15-year-old rape survivor has been sentenced to be whipped 100 times in public! Let's put an end to this lunacy by ... Read More
Framing of Joseph Dias and Targeting The CSF
This is to draw your attention to the fact that a malicious smear campaign is being carried on to defame Joseph Dias by vested political and communal interests. As you are aware, Joseph Dias and the Catholic Secular Forum (CSF) has been championing the cause of minority and human rights throughout the country. It is a matter of record therefore that over 100 very eminent persons, including parliament, Legislators, Padmashrees, Social Activists, Civil Society, Christian ... Read More
My name is Laila and I'm a journalist. I recently wrote a story about a young woman brutally gang-raped by government soldiers in Somalia, hoping that her bravery in telling such a painful story would bring attention to the awful rape problem there. Instead, the government used my article to jail a rape victim and another journalist covering the story for ‘insulting the state’!
After an international outcry, an appeals court just overturned the woman's ... Read More
Pakistan and Islam
It is a common Pakistani liberal view and is only partially correct. It ignores the elephant in the room - Islam. They are all fighting because they all believe that "their Islam" is the true Islam. And equate the problems of minorities in Pakistan with those of minorities elsewhere - the plight of Christians in Pakistan may be comparable to the plight of Christians in Egypt or Iraq or even of Christians and Hindus ...

War on women
Violent and abusive men often use their power to obstruct reforms that would protect women. Incredibly, 260 Indian politicians charged with violence against women are fighting off a proposal to make them step down. Only a global, coordinated effort to make candidates like these pay at the polls can banish them from office. Avaaz will collect donations only if we raise enough to win -- pledge to chip in $4 now:
It’s the same story ... Read More
IMPEACHMENT OF SRI LANKAN CHIEF JUSTICE
I am writing to express the Law Council of Australia's concern regarding reports of threats and intimidation against the legal profession and judiciary in Sri Lanka, and to request that the Australian Government encourage the Sri Lankan Government to respect the important roles that an independent legal profession and the rule of law play in democratic societies. The Law Council is particularly concerned about recent reports that the Sri Lankan President, President Rajapakse, has dismissed ... Read More

Is democracy historically Indian?
It has been my view that some ex-pat Indians become nostalgic about the country they left, and see some of the things to be far better than they are. For example, democracy has been characterized as historically Indian. Chanakya (or Kautalya) has been brought in to support this view.
I read something about Chanakya at college in my political science course. He existed around 300 BC, and has been regarded as a great statesman -- he ... Read More
Shockingly high rapes in Sweden
Recent articles suggest that the rape incidents are bad as it is in India, it's just as bad or worse elsewhere. Both place heavy emphasis on percentages and reportable numbers.
A reality check on those numbers please, and on articles where the premise rests on how it might be worse outside India because of reported numbers. It reminds me of when older female relatives in India would cluck and sniff about how "We in India ... Read More
Rape, a universal problem
Yes, rape is a universal problem. However, the last time I checked for the U.S., overwhelming majority cases of rape involve close relatives or by someone the victim knows. Rapes by strangers is not at all common. Serial rapists are in the same category as serial killers -- certainly not an every day phenomenon. So before we generalize statistics ought to be examined. Reliable crime statistics are a big problem vis-a-vis India. If, however, ... Read More
Respect for women in India
In the ancient and live Hindu tradition, the gods are revered, with accompanying godesses. In my part of Bengal where I originate, there is Saraswati or the goddess of learning and Kali the goddess who represents the suppression of all evil, with the appropriate and vast pujas in each instance. India sould be a model where there is full respect for the woman in all the contributions one makes to life and society. Rape should ... Read More
Rape is a global problem
Indeed the problem is global, you will be shocked to know the rape and murder figures in just New York alone for last year. May be this will prompt all of us to Google frequently.
There was a report a few weeks ago - Sweden leads the world, where almost every other woman is being raped, and the United States is among top ten nations.
Googling regularly, will hopefully mitigate our prejudices against one group ... Read More
India and Singapore
I visited Singapore in 1995 and was stunned to see how what was a backward, third world colony in 1960 had been transformed into a first world nation-state during one political lifetime, under the leadersdhip of Lee Kwan Yew. However, there is one caution that I would like to make to Nand's point about the superior performance of a "benign, authoratarian fegime" under Asian, 3rd world conditions.
Note that starting from Japan, all the societies ... Read More

The arguments Piers Morgan makes in favor of tighter gun controls, on their own, deserve debate. However, it is surprising that Morgan would use a personal tone in this essay, by threatening to leave the U.S.
Where would Morgan go next? Could he go back to the U.K. and resume a career in journalism, after running away from his homeland's tabloid world under considerable cloud? Isn't Morgan ethically challenged himself, ... Read More
Was India better governed by the British and therefore the fight for freedom was unnecessary. It further suggests that having won the freedom India would have been better off under a "benign authoritarian" regime such as that in Suharto's Indonesia. However, it makes no reference to that regime dispossessing, displacing and killing millions of Indonesians to extract oil via the various multinational corporations for private benefit. The question to ask is how benign is ... Read More
Democracy and dictatorship
I think that Indians are unduly proud of their democracy. To me, the quality of governance is more important than the form of government and, on this score, India gets an almost failing mark. India has a tremendous system on paper and is perhaps a most unjust society in practice. I would much prefer a harsh authoritarian rule that delivers for the aam admi than a democracy which cannot do so. We seem ... Read More
Indian deocracy and Pak dictatorships
Democracy is participatory governance by all in contrast to one or more dictators lording over all. Democracy needs equitable participation by all in contrast to one or more dictators enforcing their will on all. Democracy requires responsible action by one and all in contrast to all expecting one or more dictators to do it on their behalf. This does not mean democracy is without fault. But, the fault lies with its inherent participants waiting for ... Read More
Is New Delhi the most dangerous city for women?
This survey, which asks about feeling safe walking home alone at night, is perhaps more matched to the Delhi situation, and shows a different picture from those -- not just the one reported by Reuters
-- that consider the danger of being female, and include measures of skewed sex ratios (and "missing" women), differential health care, etc. You will find that India (at 69% of women who feel safe) is just below those countries (at 70% ... Read More

Fox news and Ravi Shankar
Did Fox, National Review and the rightist talk radio give the same sort of coverage to his passing?
It would be interesting to think about a parallel collection links from Indian media. Indian media, while giving adequate coverage, has generally not gone into raptures over Pt Ravi Shankar's life. Is the liberal media's general coverage of Pt Ravi Shankar's life and passing , some form of nostalgia for the 60's?
Among Indians who grew ... Read More
Driniking to become a sin for Kerala Catholics?
If drinking alchohol for Kerala Catholics is to be declared a sin by the Church leadership, it best take wine that is usually used in church service, out of the church or find a replacement. Furthermore, the more one bans alchohol the more likely this will be challenged with further consumption of alchohol and even lead to potential black market practices. The Church leaders should focus on educating towards proper consumption of alchohol and ... Read More

Canada's RCMP and minorities

Indo-American in US politics
First, NYT published a column advising Indians to stay out of politics. Then, an article announcing the victory of Tulsi Gabbard, the Hindu candidate, claimed that ALL five Indian American candidates running for elective office lost.

HAPPY Deepavali !
This is to wish members of the Hindu faith community a 'Happy Divali'.

Pravasi rights squashed by Govt of Kerala

Is affirmative action needed?
The original idea was to pull the ones in the ditches up on to a level playing field; much of it is accomplished in segments. However, there are segments of population that are still at the bottom of the pit, like the Muslims and Dalits. I am sure you have read the famed Sachar Report.

Sensationalism at the cost of truth
Right, sensationalism at the cost of truth. The New York Times, still the best newspaper in its class (and I mean newspaper, and only newspaper), could avoid such simple and obvious mistakes that hurt its credibility by paying a tiny sum to an impoverished ex-Columbia grad, ex-Indian Administrative Service officer, and author of 9 books to have a quick look at any of its pieces about India. I could have spotted that error in one ... Read More

PHASING OUT CANADIAN STUDIES PROGRAM
Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) has lately announced that it will phase out the funding for the International Canadian Studies program, which lasted for about forty years. I received this announcement with mixed feelings.

Fareed Zakaria and CNN are fast turning irrelevant to American media market. Fareed's recent contribution has been his memoirs from his excursions to socialist Europe that he has been presenting on CNN as panacea to American economic problems namely unemployment, healthcare, infrastructures.

Probably, CNN is looking towards market towards its own exit and of that of Fareed.

Indians and eating
I think what irked most of the Indians (in India and abroad) is her remark of 'Indians still eat with their hands.' Every reporter plays on the stereotypes and cliches, but that's not a big deal to us. By emphasizing that Indians "still" eat with their hands, she was immediately tagged as insensitive, and to a large extent that was a very poor remark. Also, before the second part of the series was released, everyone ... Read More

Lal Bibi's plight
After being kidnapped, raped and tortured by Afghan police, 18-year-old Lal Bibi is fighting police impunity and the cultural requirement that she commit suicide.

Insecurity and behaviour
Insecurity determines one's behavior and not religion. No matter what the religion says, people do what is expedient to them. It's happening in India and now I read that in Pakistan, I shudder to hear from Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

Immigrants support Democrats
Anecdotal evidence suggests that a lot of first generation immigrants from Desi countries are fiscal conservatives. This is understandable since most of us have seen our countries suffer due to socialist and liberal fiscal policies of our respective governments. But despite that, most first generation immigrants (again anecdotal) support Democrats because of the completely loony, and regressive social and moral policies of Republicans.

"Experts" and Experts
I am hardly an expert on Nepal, but even I can judge this piece as the apparent product of classic parachuting-in "experts" (in this case, neither scholar has worked on Nepal in any serious way -- judging from their bios on their university websites) listening to articulate
(English-speaking) members of the elite, and reflecting their biases faithfully. The judiciary needs to be repaired (true), but they themselves report that the dissolution of the Constituent Assembly (not ... Read More
