Punjabi Intellectuals should help people to come out of illusions and face Reality

By Dr. Sawraj Singh
I was addressing a group of very dedicated Punjabi intellectuals in Ludhiana, the largest city of Punjab. I said that the Punjabis are living with three illusions:
*The west is flourishing, western domination and hegemony will continue indefinitely.                                                                                                                                                                         * Migration is helping the Punjabis and Punjab.                                                                                                    *Punjabis are in a jovial mood and [...]

Regional Parties Are The Real Winners In India’s Recent Assembly Elections

By Dr. Sawraj Singh
I am really surprised to see the efforts by some circles to present the BJP as the real winner in the recent assembly elections. It is very difficult to comprehend the basis for such claim. Out of the five states, the BJP only won in Assam. In the other four states, its [...]

India Should Get Along With Neighbors Before Pleasing America

India Should Get Along With Neighbors Before Pleasing America

By Dr. Sawraj Singh
