If the past fortnight was any indication we can predict rather confidently that this year may well be as turbulent as the previous one. Looking back, in 2019, we saw economies in turmoil, polities in turmoil, and countries in turmoil. BBC commented that 2019 was the year in which popular...

Sunday, 29 September 2019 | Pramod Pathak

India is celebrating 150th year of Gandhi. And rightly so. A fitting tribute to someone who is India’s biggest global icon, whether anybody likes it or not. When his birthday is recognised by The UN as a global affair, the man must be having something. It is important, therefore, to...

Living in a stressful world

Sunday, 21 July 2019 | Pramod Pathak

Life for mankind has never been easy. But the present times are certainly more challenging. Not because of environmental demands only. It is the human aspirations to reach the sky that makes the feet leave the ground. With the mind going wayward, peace eludes humanity as it chases a mirage,...
