Why Government of India is Resisting Draft of Jan Lokpal Draft

By Sanjeev Singhai. We all know that the Government of India and specially politicians are very nervous about about current agitation of Anna Hazare‘s India Against Corruption (http://www.indiaagainstcorruption.org/).

It’s our social obligation

By Sanjeev Singhai. In our times when we were in school, while learning English, an essay on Cow was integral part of the syllabus. And the first sentence of that essay was “Cow is a domestic animal”. Similarly all these years, I believed that we, as human being are social animals.
