Welcome to my blog. This consists primarily of some of my pieces that are published in newspapers and journals. These are primarily on political and electoral issues. I am one of the founding members of the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) which has been working to improve democracy and governance in India since 1999. You can find more information on ADR at http://www.adrindia.org. I am also the founding Chairman of Aajeevika Bureau (www.aajeevika.org) a group that works on migrant labour. I might also comment on broader social issues from time to time, including on education (since I have taught for over 25 years), reservations, and other matters of general interest. Look out…and comment, if you like to. Cheers and all the best!
