  • When Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi was sold a lemon
    • Virendra Kapoor, Afternoon Despatch & Courier, August 31, 2001

    • Poor Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi! The Congress Party member of the Lok Sabha from Raiganj in West Bengal was sold a lemon allegedly by a fellow MP, albeit a member of the Rajya Sabha. And Dasmunsi believing the said lemon to be a genuine article, triumphantly brandished the same in the House. ......
  • 'Pak wants jehadi belt around India'
    • PTI, August 31, 2001

    • Prakash Singh, The Hindustan Times, August 31, 2001

  • Quotas and benefits
    • P. V. Indiresan, The Hindu, August 31, 2001

    • There IS much excitement about the U.N. conference on racial discrimination. Many Dalit activists are chagrined at the refusal of the Government of India to concede that caste discrimination too is a form of racial discrimination. In the United States, it is accepted that the Whites, the Blacks, the Red Indians, and the like belong to different races. ......
  • Fight caste in Delhi, not Durban
    • Rajinder Sachar, The Pioneer, August 31, 2001

    • We have witnessed a series of seminars and consultations, not with a view to draw up a programme how to eradicate discrimination against Dalits but whether caste discrimination should be included as an item of agenda of discussion at the World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination and Related Intolerance (WCAR) being held at Durban. I find this an exercise in futility. ......

  • Pakistan's Cruel Blasphemy Law
    • Editorial, The New York Times, August 30, 2001

    • Pakistani criminal court has sentenced Dr. Younus Shaikh to be hanged for stating obvious facts about the life of Muhammad before he became the founder of Islam. That verdict and the blasphemy law that underlies it are an embarrassment to Pakistan and a threat to the basic liberties of its citizens. ......
  • Kashmiri Hindus run scared of rising violence
    • Reuters, The Indian Express, August 30, 2001

    • A wave of grisly killings of Hindus by militants over the past six weeks has terrorised the minority community in Kashmir.

  • Musharraf's Pakistan - G Parthasarathy
    • Rediff on Net, August 29, 2001

    • Many people saw the Agra Summit as a great triumph both domestically and internationally for General Pervez Musharraf. After Prime Minister Vajpayee invited him to visit India and even strangely congratulated him while he was in the process of getting rid of the democratically elected president of Pakistan, Rafiq Tarar, the United States government did him the honour of referring to him as 'President' Musharraf for the first time, when he arrived at Agra. ......

  • Terrorism: Glossing over the real issues
    • Premen Addy, The Hindu, August 28, 2001

    • "Gangsters, not freedom fighters" was the excoriating title of the Sunday Telegraph report on the arrest, recently, of three suspected members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) in Colombia. The paper's investigative team of reporters probed the deception of "international drug dealers and gun-runners posturing as political guerillas". ......

  • Dalits as NGOs' cannon fodder
    • P. N. Benjamin, The Hindu, August 28, 2001

    • I am provoked to write this after reading several articles and statements of well known writers and intellectuals and representatives of NGOs — call them, dalit warriors — in The Hindu for some time now, criticising the Indian Government's alleged attempts to thwart a debate on caste-based discrimination in the coming United Nations World Conference against Racism in Durban. ......

  • Militant's threats force Kashmiri women take to burqa
    • AM Sofi, The Economic Times, August 27, 2001

    • One dares to defy the orders of militants because there is no protection available, say a cross section of working women in Srinagar, where tailors are doing a brisk business making burqas after an unknown outfit Lashkar-e-jabbar issued Islamic dress code for women to adhere to. ......
  • Patented Wisdom
    • Sonu Jain, The Indian Express, August 26, 2001

    • Each time someone claims a bit of India as their own - and in these times of patent wars, we're fighting claims to about 40 products all over the world - the country goes into a tailspin. Anger, confusion, desperation and determination to Fight It Out (one more time) do urgent rounds of government offices, agricultural bodies and NGOs. ......
  • Guggul holds promise
    • Rajen. M, The Star, August 26, 2001

    • Ancient Sanskrit texts written by physicians of the revered Ayurvedic medical system more than 2,500 years ago, described the condition now known as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) with a remarkable degree of accuracy.

  • How to clear the Kashmir mess
    • Balraj Madhk, Lokmat Times, Nagpur, August 15, 2001

    • Much has been written on the Kashmir problem. It is now generally accepted that the key role in making Kashmir a problem was played by Nehru.

    • M. V. Kamath, Organiser, August 12, 2001

    • Dear General: For weeks you kept saying that you were willing to meet, indeed were very anxious to meet, Prime Minster of India Atal Behari Vajpayee at any time, on any date and at any place. Shri Vajpayee finally took you at your word and invited you to India. I am afraid you mistook Shri Vajpayee's generosity for weakness. ......
