    Political obliteration of the Congress and loneliness of the Gandhis

    Looking at the train wreck of India’s Grand Old Party after the Lok Sabha election nearly two years ago, we asked rhetorically, ‘Can the Congress Rise from the Ashes?’ More recently, in a cover story in August 2020, titled ‘What’s Wrong with the Congress’, we tried to determine whether it was time for the Gandhi family to step down.

    Telugu Desam Party’s self-proclaimed "national president" N Chandrababu Naidu sat in a protest for almost half a day at the Tirupati airport on February 28 and by the end of the day, he had left for Hyderabad from the airport itself.

    Tamil Nadu elections 2021: A letter from the Nilgiris

    After spending ten months away from the hills, I landed at Coimbatore on November 18 last year. The baggage belt area had a few veshti and white “Minister Cotton'' shirt-clad individuals.

    Resignations often tend to carry a message from the one resigning. The message most certainly is likely to be ignored by the party or the organisation from which ‘that one’ is resigning because why take any messages from people who have resigned?
