Why India needs to play on fast pitches? Opinion

I still remember the advertisements on the TV prior to the series against South Africa on their domestic pitches that we will avenge the 25 years of humiliation against them this time because the team that has gone to play is number one with an aggressive attitude and a much aggressive captain. However, what has happened until now is just opposite to that - we have been humiliated yet again and nowhere in both the lost test matches we could even give the South Africans a lion's fight - we were the cubs throughout, admit it!

Nationalist vs anti-national: The Debate & the Drama

Even the nation! This is a sorry state in the country that even the nation has not remained untouched of the petty politics that the politicians in the opposition and the ruling party play. Leave aside the marginalised and historical left parties in India who are biting the dust as some pages torn and thrown of a notebook which is no longer useful, even the mainstream parties like Congress and the BJP are also not sparing the nation. The intense debates that we are regularly mock-participating on the news channels and the horrendous opinions that we get to read in the national 'reputed' newspapers every day are leading us nowhere - as a nation, we just stand divided - pro or against - in the terms of politics, it might be a good case but in the terms of a nation, we are certainly not marching in a right direction!

Jobs and Setters - the problem of employment in Bihar

The Nitish Kumar led Bihar Government which also boasts the allies like RVP and SuMo, to me, has failed to impress because I can still see the same Bihar which was once the trademark of illness and lawlessness in the country when a lampoon and thug like Lalu Yadav was the chief minister of the state - what have you done so far, Nitish ji?

How IIJNM is grooming future journalists - an insider account

Since the foundation of IIJNM in 2001, an institute of journalism in Bangalore, it has been shaping the journalists of modern India. With the changing contours of the definition of media and journalism in the country and the world, the aspirants have to understand the advances that the industry has made over the years and most of the institutes often lack that 'modernist' approach in their curriculum as well as aptitude. IIJNM, however, has been proactive in this regard from the very beginning. The faculty members always take care of the relevance of what they are offering to their students and their practicals always enlist the activities which help the students getting an account of the present-day media functions.

Anita Krishan is being seen as the author who is able to produce the contemporary classics in the modern Indian fiction because her novels have been praised very highly based on the merits of writing that she has displayed in them. Her novels, especially the latest one, Despite Stolen Dreams, and the one which was the first in this terrorism sequel, Tears of Jhelum, have been very successful and readers have liked them both very much.

Gujarat Elections & Lessons for BJP for 2019 elections

Lessons for BJP from the Gujarat Elections:

Whether Amit Shah acknowledges it or not, BJP was playing on a wet wicket in this Gujarat assembly election and once it shocked the stock market too when for sometimes the Congress seemed taking the lead and moving towards a majority on the result day. However, the creator had something else in his mind and he saved the market from crumbling and collapsing and somehow the BJP managed to win the election and formed a government with a clear majority but not a convincing one.

Barcelona Wins the El Clasico December 2017!

This is why we should not be laughing as early as did the Madridians and they had to face the humiliating defeat in the game popularly known as the El Clasico of the football events! FC Barcelona has their chances and the pinned down the arch-rivals Real Madrid FC in a convincing manner as soon as the second half of the game started. Lionel Messi was not the sublime but he certainly was the person to watch - with his assist, his penalty and his role in the first goal, he stole the show and the Ballon d'Or Cristiano Ronaldo had to make a face for himself when he had just nothing!
