Goddamn!
National Magazine September 11, 2017
Cover Story
He is the man with all the answers, who has the masses and the ‘classes’ eating out of his hands. He pushes the ­envelope of profit and power that piety and fealty draw like nothing else. But this heady combo of cult and clout also makes the ­godman’s fall as a common criminal just as spectacular.

Hibernating Idealism
National Magazine August 21, 2017
A Blank To Fill
The sly interplay between idealism and ideology keeps excess at bay. In these times of ‘total politics’ in India—characterised by a jam-spread of hatred that leaves isolated, targeted individuals meekly facing a gargantuan State—that healthy mutual vigil has been summarily suspended.
  • Ideal Clash
    Gandhiji’s vision of India—a moral, secular version of village life and economy—was the opposite of Nehru’s ideals of socialism, democracy and science. Both made compromises in their stands.
  • The Chosen Ones

  • Left Idealism
    Not tainted ‘opportunism’ but conscience subjugated by ideology is what stands between idealism and the Leftist. Choosing empathy over polemic may turn the tide, leading to reconciliation instead of the familiar spiralling of crimes and suffering.
  • Sangh Parivar
    For great political victories, idealism is a precondition. The ­outstanding success of the BJP and the Sangh ­parivar shows how true it is even in this era of practical politics.
  • Malabar Moral
    Kerala Muslims have largely followed the path of peace—it’s been one century free of violence. Of late, extremism is rearing its head, but the literate state still has the antibodies.
  • Comment
    Gandhian idealism, which consumes the practitioner, could also cleanse souls. His best followers were those who cleaned toilets to become ideal scavengers.
