Political terrorism travels to India

Whether Arvind Kejriwal is elected CM or not, he will hold the Central Government and the country to ransom in a similar way as he did in January 2014.

Moral undertones in Mandate 2014 – Time for some ‘moral’ politics?

The evident dichotomy between ‘politics’ and ‘morality’ is what makes politics a despicable object. Morality is not supposed to be a part of politics – because politics is a far cry from the moral, the good, the valuable, the just. In fact, what politics and morality represent are binaries; the two cannot co-exist, nor reconcile. That is why the ‘good’ are never into politics and those who are in politics can never be ‘good’. Despite this glaring dichotomy, India’s Mandate 2014 has infused morality into the political discourse.
