As India keeps out of RCEP, foreign minister Jaishankar bats for self-reliance

In the name of openness, India has allowed subsidised products and unfair production advantages from abroad to prevail, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said. At two virtual events held this week, he explained why India has chosen to stay away from the China-led Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which was signed on Sunday. Jaishankar articulated the NDA government’s desire for self-reliance (Atmanirbhar Bharat) — reduced dependence on imports — in various sectors of the ...

Bombay HC orders probe into disclosure of RTI applicants’ details on I&B Ministry’s website: Reports

The Bombay High Court has directed the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) to conduct an inquiry into the disclosure of personal data of more than 4,000 Right to Information (RTI) applicants on its website, reported LiveLaw and Bar and Bench.

Mint reported that the Mukesh Ambani-led company is planning to use its telecom business Jio to offer meter data collection, communication cards, telecom and cloud hosting services to discoms (distribution companies).

‘Facebook ex-employees flagged bias issue to management but were ignored,’ says MP Mahua Moitra

Lok Sabha MP Mahua Moitra on Tuesday claimed that former Facebook employees had raised issues of bias with the company’s leadership as far back as 2018, but were ignored. Moitra, who is also a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT, said in a video posted on her Twitter account that said former employees had recently reached out to the panel informally. She said these employees had raised the concerns in Facebook’s internal Q&A sessions, but “nothing was done about it”. The Trinam...

Facebook and Narendra Modi: How FB’s policy head in India allowed a BJP politician to spread hate online so that it would not hurt its “business prospects”

Ankhi Das (second from right) with Narendra Modi when Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg called on the prime minister in all saffron. Facebook’s shady role in Indian politics—hunting with the majoritarian hounds and fuelling the communal fires, for a price—has been blazingly apparent for over eight years now. But it has taken a devastating expose in The Wall Street Journal to reveal why Indian media has been so disinterested in such a juicy story. The August 14 WSJ report headlined “How Facebook’s Ha...

J-POD || Podcast || “In 1962, Nehru heard the Opposition, convened Parliament, didn’t stifle media. In 2020, Modi is trying to snatch victory from jaws of defeat by managing headlines” || Jairam Ramesh

When WhatsApp becomes the chief source of information, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that India was a mere 17 years old as a free nation when China invaded in 1962.   An impressionable teenager, whose population was 45 crores, whose GDP was a mere $4,200 crore. On the other hand, when China intruded into Ladakh this year seizing land and strangling soldiers, independent India was a full grown adult, a real senior citizen if you will, all of 73 years old. India’s population is now 130 c...

“India has ceded territory to China. Status quo ante has been lost. China has redrawn LAC”: scathing editorials call the Narendra Modi government’s bluff on the ‘Surender’ in Ladakh

Click to view slideshow. Editorials in India’s major English newspapers on the “mutual disengagement” that India and China have agreed upon, are nearly unanimous in their verdict: under “strong man” Narendra Modi, India has surrendered its territory to China. The mature and considered reading of the newspapers is in marked contrast to TV news channels parroting the BJP-led NDA government line, relayed via WhatsApp. Barring The Economic Times, the editorials unhesitatingly call out the failure of...

J-POD || Podcast || “National newspapers devote 0.67% of front page to 69% of India. Corporate media is the bed on which religious and market fundoos cohabit. Morons are reworking labour laws” || P. Sainath

Less than 2% of India’s population is invested in stocks and mutual funds. Yet, India has at least half-a-dozen business newspapers in English. And just as many business news channels. Every newspaper in every language, in every part of the country, has a page—or half of page—dedicated to business news. Or what they think is business news. Not surprisingly, when the exodus of migrant labourers began from the big cities after the lockdown was announced on March 25, the news media was as surpri...

A lot can happen over coffee: politics, business, big money, tax terrorism, scandal, and a happy ending

The juiciest story today is the news that the Karnataka Congress chief D.K. Shiva Kumar’s daughter is to marry the son of the founder of Cafe Coffee Day, the late V.G. Siddhartha. Siddhartha, the son-in-law of former Karnataka chief minister S.M. Krishna, you will remember, killed himself by jumping into a river in Mangalore, in July last year. At least two Bangalore newspapers confirm the rumour of the alliance: The Times of India and Kannada Prabha. And in ToI, Shiva Kumar goes on record an...

38 factoids and 5 infographs from the jungle of statistics published in newspapers that put Narendra Modi’s stupendous 2019 victory in perspective

Many English newspapers have produced a dizzying array of information and graphics following the election of Narendra Modi, with The Times of India (above) standing out for homework, imagination and display. But it’s easy to get lost in the maze. Here are a few stats which stand out from ToI, Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, Mint, and The Telegraph. *** 1. BJP has been the single latest party in five of the last seven general elections. 2. While BJP got 21 seats more than in 2014, its alli...

Mitron, bad news: Whichever way you look at it, it looks more and more likely that Narendra Modi will be a one-term PM (as Nostradamus predicted)

A victor always tries to see a state election outcome as a precursor to a larger, national trend. And the vanquished attempts to dissociate elections to the Vidhana Sabha from elections to the Lok Sabha. And so it is with the verdict of the Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram assembly elections. The Congress sees it as a curtain raiser to the general elections in 2019. The BJP thinks not. But a fortnight after the results in the five states, some things are getting cle...

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, Ananth Kumar was, at best, one of the builders of BJP in Karnataka; a power broker like Pramod Mahajan

(courtesy: Vishveshwar Bhat) Union minister and Bangalore South MP Ananth Kumar’s premature demise at the age of 59 will hog the news headlines, at least in Karnataka, for the next few hours.

What we learned from Facebook’s latest data misuse grilling

Facebook’s CTO Mike Schroepfer has just undergone almost five hours of often forensic and frequently awkward questions from members of a UK parliament committee that’s investigating online disinformation, and whose members have been further fired up by misinformation they claim Facebook gave it. The veteran senior exec, who’s clocked up a decade at the company, also as its VP of engineering, is the latest stand-in for CEO Mark Zuckerberg who keeps eschewing repeat requests to appear. The DCMS...

Beware of the Useful Idiots

This editorial by me appeared today in Pragati. Many of the intellectuals who supported Narendra Modi in 2014 should have realised their mistake by now. They haven’t. Here is why. Almost a century ago, Vladimir Lenin is said to have coined the term ‘Useful Idiots.’ The term referred to those intellectuals or eminent people who gave a movement respectability by association, but weren’t actually respected within the movement itself. RationalWiki defines a Useful Idiot as “someone who supports on...

The Dumpster Fire That Is Fyre Festival

Situation: Idyllic Imagine, if you will, an epic music festival, on a beautiful Bahamas beach, in the Caribbean, promoted by beautiful Instagram models. Customers paying between $1,500 and nearly $13,000 for tickets will dine on celebrity chef-prepared gourmet meals, stay in luxury “geodesic domes”, party on private jets & yachts, schmooze with models & “influencers”, music artists, and celebs, while enjoying top bands such as Blink-182. Alas, this was not to be. This story was simply too enjoy...
