Why the US never expected India to say No at the WTO. What does it tell us of Indo-US relations? swapan55.com/2014/08/us-mis…
Being Press Council chief is ideal job: no work, Lutyens bungalow, lots of time for unsolicited opinion. No wonder people hate to give it up
In its Delhi edition, ToI devotes nearly 500 words of gush for report on 100-strong AAP Gaza feat. Way to go as local elections approach?
Judging by number of calls yesterday, I imagine WTO is the most pressing concern in India. Maybe presence of US officials was coincidence.
The think-tank wallas seems to have told US that Modi govt lacks application & will sign on any dotted line. Hence surprise over WTO veto.
I think @taslimanasreen should be given a permanent visa to stay in India. This bi-annual controversy should be finally put to rest.

The larger issue in this liberal-left spat is the question of all historical research to be done solely by committee-approved scholars.
Some 'liberals' are after Arundhati Roy for her essay on Ambedkar. They want to prosecute her 4 publishing unauthorised version! Sounds daft
Participated in a DD discussion for the first time in 10 years. Am I out of the blacklist?
@swapan55 Only rumour that remains is govt is considering redefinition of the term "Anglo-Indian" so as to nominate you to the Lok Sabha

In past 2 months I have appointed editor of 2 national dailies, given a RS seat & now sent off to London. Must be a dearth of real news!

Yes, even foreign policy should be an object of political change. Particularly India's Israel policy. swapan55.com/2014/07/indias…
