Why India does poorly at the Olympics

Why India does poorly at the Olympics

Not enough emphasis placed on sport in struggle for existence
“The middle class is sedentary and goes to sports arenas only to have a good evening out — kids, colas, burgers. They don’t go to sports events to savour sport; few Indians play sport and understand sport. This class wants its kids to become MBAs/doctors/engineers, not [...]

Rio Olympics: Virus of Capitalist Greed and Arrogance More Dangerous Than Zika

Rio Olympics: Virus of Capitalist Greed and Arrogance More Dangerous Than Zika

By Dr. Sawraj Singh
The controversy over Russian athletes has taken the Olympics to a new low. The Olympics seem to be completely devoid of any sportsman spirit and have become open and naked pursuit of greed, arrogance and political manoeuvring.

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

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 [...]

West Huffs And Puffs While Russia And China Move On

By Dr. Sawraj Singh
Just as in the story about the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, the western policy to isolate Russia and China seems to be failing miserably. Not only does this policy seem to have failed to isolate Russia and China, they seem to be emerging stronger. This policy also seems [...]

Violence Pushes America Deeper Into Crisis

Violence Pushes America Deeper Into Crisis

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

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 [...]
