The idea of Vishwaguru for India seems to be so beautiful, and yet lucrative. Despite this, most of the people in India do not understand the essence of the term Vishwaguru and its significance. This article examines what should be an approach towards civilisational Renaissance and how sustainable development and self-reliance must be observed from a pure strategic point of view, for Bharat as a civilisational society and a nation-state. …


I had an amazing discussion on the history of World War II with Dr Robert Lyman on the Battle of Kohima and the American-Chinese relationships involved here. The question with respect to the discussion I asked myself were definitely not whether I agreed with him or not on his understanding of Indian history, with respect to the ending days of the British Raj. It is for the viewers and the readers of this article to decide. …


The Indo-Pacific – geographically, and strategically, is an important region, even when it comes to technology transfers and the economics behind it. Although AI is itself both as a concept and as an industry is improving, India’s role in the Indo-Pacific, even from the perspective of technology becomes essential. India is an important partner of the Quadrilateral grouping and has committed to invest in critical technologies. In the domain of AI, India is an important partner to the United States and the European countries. Yet, the indigenous technology companies have to achieve and transform two important policy factors of AI…


The international media and the big tech are being regularly condemned for certain unclear actions, in this decade and even before, in those times, when neoliberalism flourished all across the world, and the idea of global commons internationalized; even in India. It is quite apparent to state that we take those populations, who were earlier so much unheard, have finally got individual & group voices to speak, rant and criticise anything they intend to. In basic terms, that is what is usually considered a golden standard of freedom of expression. Recently, the Indian Government gave a quite balanced and erudite…


Fire altar or aukuras under the Romuva tradition

An idea is like a virus, resilient, highly contagious. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. It can grow to define or destroy you. — Inception (2010).

Historically, it has been argued that tradition and modernity are, politically, antagonistic towards each other. The very basis of the Bolshevik revolution, the Maoist revolution in China and the French Revolution was about the notion of ‘struggle is progress’. Even Christianity went through serious political and religious reforms from its earlier centuries drastically. The treaty of Westphalia was a moment of jubilation, like in the case of India, the Rig Veda, after…

About the Article

The Basic Structure Doctrine is an interesting and transformative connotation in the history of Indian Constitutional Law. There is no doubt that since 1973, this politico-legal doctrine has reflected the vision to preserve and emphasize on the integrity-centric behaviour of Constitutional Law espoused on the basis of the premise that the polity guaranteed and reckoned by the Indian Constitution has to be protected. Now, the Basic Structure is utilized as a juridical doctrine, which is often sought as a firewall between Arts. 13 and 368, with its own exceptions and relationships. On the other hand, if we assume that the…

Often media houses, lawyers and academics use the terms like constitutionalism, constitutional morality, rule of law, oppression and even many other terms that are affiliated in usage with the field of constitutional law (and politics). Most of the presumptions made in the usage of such terms derive around the politics of Europe and the United States. However, considering globalization and the post-2011 situation of the global order, it seems way clear that the politicization of the idea of constitutionalism in India, so to say the least, is highly Americanized, and deranged. This starts with the culmination of some very flawed…

The year 2020 marks the shedding of ideological obscuration amidst democracies. Geopolitics and the face of ‘realpolitik’ is undoubtedly at the centre of many problems and avenues that the world accordingly faces. India’s dilemma, therefore — is different. In many aspects, India has a fortunate position, unlike the EU and the US, which we must never ignore. In terms of constitutionalism, India can learn the social coherency and the urge of credibility towards its institutions from Europe, while in terms of the dynamic nature of democracy and its three sections, it can certainly learn from the US. In terms of…

Estimably, Indian Diplomacy is partly bemusing and partly intuitively encouraging, which amidst these times, despite COVID19, is obvious. There is no doubt about the very fact that India’s EAM Dr S Jaishankar is a capable diplomat, who has earned and led India towards some important avenues, which if India had exited NAM even before the beginning of BRICS in 2004, they would have achieved relatively. The foreign policy, however, still — despite the artificial creation of binary politics and visions between the Global Progressives (Democratic Socialists, Cultural Marxists, Pseudo-Liberal Globalists & Traditional Communists) & the Global Conservatives (Ethnonationalists, Modern Conservatives…

Now, it is an inevitable theoretical saying that liberalism centralizes the orgasm and structure of what rights and privileges really are. Historically, from the French Revolution till the Second World War, we have been in a dichotomous Machiavellian fashion of elite-street system, amidst which Conservatism and Socialism too transformed along with evangelism in various continents. The Cold War period was significant in the history of neo-politics because this period enabled us to understand how and why our systems need proper fixing. Since the 1990s, the world was obsessed with globalization, which fostered global capitalism, with certain movements of socialism/democratic socialism…
