Debate in Parliament exposes UPA ineptitude
Chidambaram clueless on price rise
By Geeta

THE Reserve Bank of India comes out with a quarterly review of its monetary policy and revises the reverse-repo and repo rates six per cent and seven per cent respectively. Experts tell us that Governor Y.V. Reddy has taken such a step for containing inflation between five and 5.5 per cent. Finance Minister P. Chidambaram agrees in nod and says what RBI has done is right for keeping the price rise in check. Great job done by both the RBI and the Finance Ministry?inflation will remain at the sub-six per cent level this year! Great news for the middle class!    more >

It?s only dividing the people

IT would be in the fitness of things for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to disband the Sachar Committee on Minorities without further delay.

India That is Bharat

Shariat positive Sensex

WATER, water, everywhere, not a drop to drink, said some poet. Well, Muslims, Muslims, everywhere, not a drop of secularism, says Satiricus. Or is that just vapid versifying on this pen-pusher?s part?
