Hindu Americans lead efforts to build political coalition of African Americans, Latinos and Chinese Americans

A day after US presidential nominee Donald J. Trump said in a New York event that he loves the Hindus and India, not far from New York, in Philadelphia another group of Hindus were silently scripting together a brand new political coalition. Led by Hindu activists Satya Dosapati, Arvind Kumar, African American activist Bruce Carter, it brought together for the first time Hindu, African, Chinese, Hispanic, Korean and Jewish Americans together under the banner of the “All American Rally for Trump”  spelling a new age of minority political activism in America. Among them they already represent a substantial voting population in US. ...

US Elections: Indian-Americans are in the running

The question is – who will make the cut? The world is shockingly absorbing the US election debates where young children cannot participate! This is one of the lowest points of presidential debates in the US history. While US election fever climbing up a peak, with the Presidential debates the most-watched and the most-talked about events, here’s a look at how the Indian Americans are trying to remain in the forefront. In general, majority of Indian-Americans are supporters of the Democratic Party. However, during this election a large number of them have moved towards the Republican Party or may not vote at ...

Netaji Disappearance – A new possibility!

One wonders why Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave so much importance to declassify the files related to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. In the manner and swiftness the files are released on-line is indicative of high importance of the subject matter. Journalist turned researcher Anuj Dhar has written the most well-known books concerning the controversy surrounding the fate of Subhas Chandra Bose. India’s Biggest Cover-up (2012), Vitasta Publishing and latest one is What Happened to Netaji (2016), by the same publisher. He is a co-founder of a group called ‘Mission Netaji’. I had not read the books earlier – only watched videos ...

Behind the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize

The Nobel Committee has announced today that this year’s Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. This was despite the fact that the referendum last week to ratify the peace treaty was lost by a very thin margin – 50.22% No and 49.78% Yes, though various surveys predicted easy passage. Since 1964 the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia—People’s Army (Spanish: Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia—Ejército del Pueblo, FARC–EP and FARC) rebels waged a guerrilla war against the civilian governments. This year, on June 23, with an intent to end one of the world’s longest-running conflicts, Colombia’s government and the FARC signed a ...

6th Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation Project (ISPaD) conference in New York

A very unique event took place in New York on October 1st called the 6th Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation Project Inc. (ISPaD). Before we present the specifics of this conference, we need to dig history little bit. India was trifurcated in 1947 into India, West Pakistan and East Pakistan. Britain left India but they left a severely divided sub-continent which has thousands of years of shared history. The carnage, mass killings and exodus of people from their homes has no parallel in history. The partition was announced without having any proper plan for people to migrate out/in and as a ...

Balooch Nation: The Unrepresented Nation in the UN

Baloch Activists Protest in New York near the UN on September 14.   Photo Courtesy: Biswajit Chakroborty Founders of the United Nations set up this much needed institution to be the assembly of nations. The irony, however, is from the time of its formation to the present day many nations, which are colonized, are denied their rightful place in the United Nations. One nation, among these nations, that is not present in the seventy first session of the UN General Assembly is the Baloch nation. Pakistan forcibly occupied the sovereign state of Balochistan in 1948. This period is the worst ...

15 Years Later Part II

Yes, terrorism in our modern era has arrived on September 11, 2001. I still remember the days at the airport.  I did not have to take off my shoes or belt. I could carry water bottles with me. I still remember the days when we did not have to go through security scans, while entering a government building, bus terminals and hotels. For some time, I’m thinking about violence and war. Is it really inevitable? Our beliefs motivate us to do things. Is it to establish the power of ego – that only my way is right, that the only ...

15 Years Later – Part I

15 years ago – I remember the day vividly; that memory is framed in the darkest abyss of my being! It was an early Tuesday September morning in Boston. Very pleasant weather – the grass in my lawn was wet with dew. The school bus came and picked up all the kids. The birds were singing as usual. The only noticeable change was the ivy plant climbing up the pine tree in my back yard, which had a few leaves bright yellow and some red – announcing the coming of the fall season. I was going to take my car ...
