With due respect to the independent candidates - and there are 4000-odd such individuals from the last elections - in my honest opinion, given the current Indian political system, they are nothing more than “wasted cannon”. 

Recent political events 4 major states - Maharashtra, Bihar, Karnataka & Andhra - tell the story of changing political governance agenda. When it comes to managing affairs of their state units, it is Federal nature of BJP vs Imperial approach of Congress.

It is time to address the issues of governance in coalition governments with roles & responsibilities of the partners and political accountability keeping voter’s mandate on top of the agenda.

A recently released report on ‘Caste’ by the Hindu American Foundation, a body of (mostly first generation) American citizens of Indian origin, has unleashed a raging controversy in India and the US Hindu community.

Dr. Sen’s case is a case which sits right in the twilight zone. Even if we accept Dr. Sen's contention that he does not support Naxalites' methods of violence, their goals and  his overall philosophy has been congruent.

Why target the poor Binayak Sen? To silence dissent? To act as a deterrence, that no human rights group work in Dantewada? They had arrested him in 2007 and that didn’t deter anyone.

Much of the attention in the Radia tapes has been on the mischief played by journalists. What has received less attention is the close nexus between lobbyists and regional political actors.

When a government regulates our activities, it must ensure that the restrictions imposed on our freedoms serve a proven good purpose.

With the inability to wean away Jatav voters among dalits from the Bahujan Samaj Party, the Congress is trying its “best” to win support from other dalit communities.
