Modifesto: A Close Look

Interestingly, even as the first votes are going to be cast in next couple of days, BJP, which ‘officially’ declared its PM candidate almost a year back, could not manage time yet to release its ‘manifesto’. All we have is a daily stream of live telecasts, almost round the clock, of vituperative rally addresses by Modi! One single Manifesto substituted by a daily Modifesto.
The most unprecedented phenomenon of the 2014 elections has been the NaMo PR exercise. It has been running for years now- powered by hired desi-videshi PR agencies …

Resist  this Regime of Bullets and Batons in Kashmir!

AISA strongly condemns the use of lethal weapons on unarmed protesters in Bandipora by Kashmir police. Firing by police and CRPF led to the killing of an 18 yr old boy, Farhat Dar. Two other people were injured in the incident.
While the Deputy Commissioner of district Bandipora, Shah Faisal, has ordered a probe, we know very well the nature and content of these probes. In 2010, a 13 yr old innocent boy named Wamiq Farooq fell prey to unprovoked tear gas shelling from the police. In 2013, non-bailable warrants were …

After whistleblower Edward Snowden’s courageous leak citizens world over are enraged with the criminal audacity of the surveillance programmes run by US which violate the minimum democratic rights of free individuals. It’s a shame that such colonization of free spaces and sovereignty is done in the name of preventing terrorism and providing security. Obama’s US believes itself to be the self proclaimed dispenser of global security. Every common individual is being treated as a potential terrorist automatically warranting US surveillance and any dissent, like that of Edward Snowden, deserves extreme …

Normalising the Corporate-Communal Idiom:  Can the Mainstream Media Any Longer Claim to Call  Itself a ‘Pillar of Democracy’?

Media-manufactured-Modi-mania (M4) continues to be the most unique feature of the Elections 2014. On economic and human rights issues, big corporate media have always sided with the corporate ideology and blacked-out people’s voices. However, for ruling class mainstream political parties and views, it maintained, so far, a degree of ‘plurality’ and ‘balance’. What is new this time is media’s open propaganda for one political personality, throwing to winds all pretensions of political ‘plurality’ that media in ‘liberal’ capitalist ‘democracy’ claim to represent.
The government controlled media in earlier years, indeed, lacked …

Activist and lawyer Mukul Sinha succumbed to lung cancer in Ahmedabad on 12 May 2014. He was 63.

As a young researcher in a university in Ahmedabad, Mukul Sinha became a trade union organiser when 133 persons were laid off from the university in 1979. Throughout the 1980s, …
