The IPL spoilsports
Published on : Saturday, June 02, 2012
The Indian Premier League (IPL) obviously doesn’t inflict pain on any creature, but then that was never the point. The point was, and is, pleasure. And this the self-appointed guardians of our morality cannot stand. They can’t bear to see us enjoying ourselves, and spot the beehive of economic activity surrounding the sport, writes Ravi Shanker Kapoor in Deccan Chronicle.
Bollywood Vs Bin Laden
Published on : Tuesday, February 08, 2011
America’s struggle against Islamist terrorism is nowhere close to succeeding.Conventional wisdom holds that communism collapsed because America forced the Soviet Union into an economically ruinous arms race. But the truth is that the West won the Cold War less because it pointed nuclear missiles at the Soviet people—and more because it won their hearts and minds.But can Western pop culture do the trick against radical Islam? Unlikely. Bollywood’s allure,however rooted in a shared heritage, values and issues, is different. And India's recent economic success makes its pop culture even more compelling, writes Shikha Sood Dalmia in Reason.
The public-private gulf
Published on : Thursday, November 18, 2010
There is a gulf between public discourse and private deliberations, opne important being the attitude towards money. People value money in their private life, but look down upon it and downplay its significance on a higher, philosophical level. It should be said that hypocrisy is the root of the problem. The hostility between India and US is mostly a result of socialism, the most overrated political ideology. Intellectuals blame everything on multinational corporations and glorify rural life, writes Ravi Shanker Kapoor.

Jumping In and Out of Line
Published on : Friday, August 06, 2010
There are many cutters in Indian lines. People get things based on their ability to push and pull, maim and slaughter.The line stands for dysfunction and lack of civility. But, this is changing because of the free market. People don't have to wait any more. They have have to pay their way through a line, writes Anand Giridhardas in The New York Times.
Bullfights in Spain: The beginning of the end?
Published on : Wednesday, August 04, 2010
The decision by the parliament of the Spanish region of Catalonia to ban bullfighting after 2012 is an assault on individual rights. If Catalonian nationalists are to be consistent, they should prohibit meat and foie gras too. But, consistency is not among their virtues. Bullfighting has preserved an entire breed of cattles. The only wrong aspect of bullfighting is government subsidization of it, writes Alvaro Vargas Llosa in The Independent Institute Newsroom.
Capitalism: Hollywood's Miscast Villain
Published on : Friday, June 04, 2010
Capitalism always had a bad press. Even in movies, it isn't represented fairly. Movies blame capitalism for all the evils of the society, and capitalists are cast as villains.Much of the anger is due to the conflict between directors, screenwriters and backers.Hollywood, however, is one of the greatest successes of captalism, writes Alex Tabarrok in The Wall Street Journal.
Berlin Wall 2009: It takes more than a generation to reunify the Germans
Published on : Sunday, November 08, 2009
The Berlin wall was a concrete snake, that constricted in its coils Western parts of Berlin, while its venomous fangs killed hundreds of East Germans who tried to flee to freedom. Fall of the wall not only reunited Germany after four decades, but also brought to light the social impact communism had on the people in the East. West Berlin, due to its isolated position, had grown into a haven for artists and was home to a highly individualistic population that generally accepted people from other cultures. Having lived under a repressive regime many Easterners found it difficult to accept sharing prosperity with culturally-different people who sought a better life in Germany. Rainer Heufers looks back to find hope in the rise of a new generation of Germans.
Berlin Wall: Those born free in 1989 & our young
Published on : Saturday, November 07, 2009
One dimension of this problem is just the generational change, which is inevitably hard. For people who grew up with communism, it is inherently hard to cope with political and economic freedom. The children born free in 1989 are now 20 years old . The coming 25 years will see this generation dominate society, and this will be a much better period for East Europe. A similar demographic transition will take place in India in the coming 20 years: the generation that rises to prominence will be free from the blinkers of autarky and socialism, writes Ajay Shah in the Financial Expresss.
