Free verse

A silent dreary night.
My eyes behold the sky,
Washed a dark blue.
The glowing crescent,
Of the moon.
Reflecting in my eyes.
The grey,
Clouding what lies beyond,
A world of its own.
Unheard, unseen,
A realm of the heavenly.
Oh,
A star appears,
And then one more.
Twinkling as if in glee.
Little speckles of light,
Like windows to paradise.
I stand still,
Taking this beauty in.
Lucid yet surreal,
As I gaze,
Into the endless amounts of space.
Filled with mysteries,
An ever-changing canvas,
For the world to see.
The night sky,
Ceaseless,
A reminder of what’s unknown.
Of hope.
That to existence,
There’s so much more.

As India reels under the second wave of the Covid-19 crisis witnessing an increasing rise in cases and deaths along with a shortage of vital resources such as Covid Beds and Oxygen Cylinders, religious places from Temples and Mosques to Gurudwaras have stepped forward to lend a helping hand in dealing with the pandemic.

Be it offering Covid beds, oxygen facilities, donations, and even free food to those affected with the disease, these places of worship have shown that the biggest religion is indeed humanity.

Temples:

As India grapples with the spike in Covid-19 cases, several states including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Bangalore, Karnataka have reported a shortage of the anti-viral drug Remdesivir.

Although medical experts and even the WHO has maintained that it is not a proven cure against Covid-19, people are willing to try anything that gives them a ray of hope despite its uncertain impact.

With people lining up at pharmaceuticals and hospitals demanding the drug, a crunch in its supply has been reported giving rise to its hoarding and black marketing.

Reportedly, injections of Hetero-Remdesivir 100 mg of 20 ml, which is to be…


Several Hindu students of Rutgers University, Newark US had recently started an online petition against controversial Historian and Professor of South Asian History Audrey Truschke for her penchant for demonizing Hindus and propagating hate and misinformation about the community.

The Petition:

According to the petition shared on Twitter by ‘Hindus on Campus’, Professor Audrey Truschke’s statements had time and again reflected a clear and demonstrable pattern of deep Hinduphobia with the motive of creating a mistrust of Hinduism and Hindus.

In 2018, Audrey had casually tweeted that Sita had called Lord Rama ‘uncouth and a misogynist pig’. She had also…


After US-based ‘watchdog’ Freedom House released an annual report downgrading India’s freedom status to ‘Partly Free’ with a score of 67, the Centre has now issued a point-by-point rebuttal to its claims calling the report ‘misleading, incorrect, and misplaced’.

The report had judged India on its understanding of political rights and civil liberties in the country. Reflecting a bias towards minorities and anti-India entities, it repeatedly discussed the alleged discrimination suffered by Muslims in India, pointed towards arrests of activists and journalists, and action taken against some NGOs in the country.

Calling the Central Government “Hindu nationalist”, it said that…


In a major step towards monetization and modernization, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has once again made it clear that the Government has “no business to be in business” and aims to privatize all Public Sector Units (PSUs) except for the bare minimum in four strategic sectors.

Speaking at a Webinar on privatization at the Department on Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM), PM Modi asserted that the Government’s duty is to support enterprises and not own or run them.

“Fiscal support to sick PSUs puts burden on the economy and they should no be run just because of legacy”, he…


Indians, both individuals, and corporates could soon have to liquidate their Cryptocurrency assets or face heavy penalties if the proposed Crypto Bill, 2021 is cleared by the Parliament.

Expected to be introduced in the ongoing legislative session, the Cryptocurrency and Regulation of Official Digital Currency Bill aims to put a complete ban on all private cryptocurrencies, while also creating a framework for an official digital currency issued by the Reserve Bank of India. It does, however, provide certain exceptions in order to promote the underlying technology driving digital currency.

The introduction of this bill stems from an important concern over…


“Massive hike in Petrol prices is a prime example of the failure of the Congress-led UPA”, Narendra Modi’s tweet from 2012 ironically holds true today, except that now the BJP is at the Centre as automobile fuel prices reach record highs across the country.

Petrol and Diesel prices in India have increased for the 8th consecutive day, priced at Rs 89.29/litre and Rs 79.70/litre respectively in the capital. Premium petrol has crossed the Rs 100 mark in several cities of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh and is very close to the levels in Maharashtra.

Just 6–7 years ago during the UPA…


As was foreseeable in India’s political scenario, the indigenously developed vaccine too wasn’t immune to politicization.

2021 started on a highly positive note for India, as after months of toiling by scientists and conduction of trials by the Government, the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) finally granted Emergency Approval to two COVID-19 Vaccines — Serum Institute’s Covishied and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin.

While Covishield is developed jointly by AstraZeneca and Oxford University and would be manufactured by Serum Institute in the country, Covaxin is an indigenous COVID-19 vaccine developed by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

In lines with Aatmanirbhar Bharat, India was among the first few countries to set…
