Shillong Riots: Protestors were given expensive alcohol, money to target Sikh community

Recently, Shillong has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. The TV sets and newspapers had headlines that read ‘Shillong on the edge’, ‘Violence hits Shillong’, ‘Shillong on the boil’, etc. What started as a petty argument between the resident Sikhs of Punjabi Lane(Them Mawlong) and the indigenous Khasis was blown out of […]

Is The Logical Indian a media outlet from the AAP’s stable?

In what has perhaps come as a big blow to The Logical Indian’s claims of being ‘independent’, ‘centrist’ and ‘apolitical’, Facebook recently rolled out a feature specifically for pages wherein a section named ‘Info and Ads‘ has been added. This section enables users to gather information about the active ads run by a page, and […]

Who’s the victim? Barkha Dutt’s ‘threat’ claims versus Anand Narasimhan being threatened on live TV

As the tone for the 2019 General elections is being set, a bunch of journalists have realised that they must use their limited influence on society to prevent Narendra Modi from assuming office once again.

Ravish’s latest theatrics, and his ilk’s hypocrisy

It’s that time of the year when a bunch of self-entitled Indian journalists appear out of their cocoons and cry about being journalists in a country called India.

A young Sikh’s take on the Punjab government omitting Sikh history from textbooks.

The heartthrob of many (including some BJP supporters) Captain Amarinder Singh, and his Congress Party have pulled a stunt regarding the history textbooks of Punjab.

Kejriwal’s dharna politics does not befit the BJP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a ‘fast’ against the opposition after an abysmal budget session. The budget session 2018 turned out to be one of the least productive in a decade.

Pakistan Day celebrations: Govt. has some tough questions to answer

On Shaheed Diwas, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat and the Government of India perhaps thought it would be expedient to take part in Pakistan Day celebrations, both in Islamabad as well as Pakistani Embassy in New Delhi.

Delhi Fateh Diwas: The day Khalsa forces captured the Red Fort from the Mughals

A Response to Swara Bhaskar’s Unfair attack on Bhansali, This time by a Man

I read Avina Kohli’s brilliant response to you here on itself and I was tempted to write one myself (from a male point of view). Swara Bhaskar ji, it is truly and totally dedicated to you, and should be considered a man’s response to your 2400-words ranticle (rant+article) in The Wire, where you touched […]
