We Indians are ancient people and take justifiable pride in many accomplishments of our civilization over the roughly fifty centuries for which it has endured. We, in other words, have a lot of history behind us. Presumably, there is a lot in this history worthy of academic attention. And it does receive this attention, both from the Indian and western academics.

Article by Dr. Saumya Dey on "What ails JNU? Well, some of its students inhabit the island of Calypso " - OpIndia.com

February 11, 2017

Many of us are familiar with Homer’s epic Odyssey, the sequel to the blind bard’s martial yarn Iliad. Odyssey is the story of how Odysseus, one of the many heroes who fought in the ten-year long Trojan war, finds his way back to Ithaca, the city-state he ruled, after the defeat and fall of Troy. Odysseus’s journey home lasts as long as the war itself, because on the way he is kidnapped by the nymph Calypso. The beauteous Calypso is so besotted with the hero that she absolutely must have him as her husband. Odysseus, however, is already married to Penelope. He is not interested in wedding the nymph. The upset Calypso, thus, imprisons Odysseus on her island Ogygia hoping that one day she will manage to persuade the brave Ithacan to change his mind. It was awfully hard to escape from Calypso’s island. Odysseus, being the hero he was, did, in the end, manage to escape, but not before languishing on it for seven long years.

Article written by Dr. Saumya Dey on "Why are the domestic ‘liberals’ so pessimistic about India? Here are some reasons" - OpIndia.com

June 02, 2017

Ms. Arudhati Roy’s second novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, is out. She has produced it after a nearly two decade long break from creative writing. I haven’t read the book yet but am forming an impression of it from its reviews – especially the ones appearing in the foreign media. It seems like the novel is a litany of the infinite woes that haunt our poor, benighted country.

Communists and Liberals – Two Faces of ‘Elite Reaction’ - Indiafacts

July 04, 2017

Who are the communists? Well, in our country their popular image is of these shabbily dressed people who pontificate on the evils of capitalism, ‘neo-liberalism’ and religion. This is when they are harmless, even a little amusing. When they are not harmless and amusing, they plot the overthrow of the Indian state in the forests of Dantewada and Sukma by waging a war against it. Communists of both types – harmless and harmful – derive inspiration from a revolutionary vision originally propounded in the nineteenth century by a German polymath called Karl Marx.

Brexit! CETA in trouble! And now Trump! These headlines have become reference points to argue that globalisation is not just at a standstill but is in reverse.
 
Donald Trump is known to have stated that climate change is a ‘hoax’. He is widely expected to review a scientific report issued by the Obama administration that provided the basis of much of the regulation the current administration undertook. And just this month, 105 countries ratified the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Globalisation and proliferation of information technology have led to a complex and dynamic business environment today, where sustainable development has become the biggest goal for organisations. In the wake of this changing business context, top B-schools across the country are working on all-round holistic development of business managers through experiential, immersive, integrative and interdisciplinary programmes. “At International Management Institute (IMI), MBA graduates develop a more global perspective, leadership skills rooted in self-awareness and self-reflection, and an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of business as well as the limitations of models and markets,” says A. K. Rath, dean of Executive Education and International Relations at IMI.

The locals have gathered in large numbers protesting the construction. The police with weapons are trying to keep order. The corporation insists that they will not harm the environment. The courts have held hearings and passed judgment. No, I am not talking about Singur or Niyamgiri. I am talking about the state of North Dakota in the US, home to the Standing Rock Sioux, a native American nation, and another example of the clash between industrial development and the rights of the people.
