As the preparations for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections have begun, the faction-ridden Opposition is leaving no stone unturned to cobble together alliances to take on the formidable Narendra Modi Government, which is hell-bent on correcting the historical mistakes and creating a new narrative of India’s intrinsic potential.

Saturday, 10 Mar 2018 | Satish Kumar | in Oped

India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru called a university a temple of learning.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), with its more than fifty thousand shakhas spread across the country, is propagating the idea of India, but the idea has been distorted and maligned by the liberal-secular set-up over the years.

Time to break China-Pak’s anti-India nexus

Saturday, 09 Sep 2017 | Satish Kumar | in Oped

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s recent assertion that India’s image in the world is changing seems to have come true with the Narendra Modi-led Government successfully breaking the Doklam impasse in India’s favour.

China’s repeated calls for the withdrawal of Indian troops from the vantage point of India-Bhutan-China tri-junction expose its restlessness.
