    If the court is compelled to poke its nose in all civic issues, what's the use of government? Doesn't it indicate lack of good governance?

  • Political bicycles and the Living Wage tour

    Julian Sayarer
    20 Sep 2014 | 1:23 am
    Bicycles unavoidably put humans into contact with the world around them and with each other. In his Life Cycles Living Wage tour this autumn, Julian Sayarer will cycle more than 1,000 miles across 12 venues in the UK to support the Living Wage Foundation.  Bicycles are political. It’s as simple as that. They are political because they are deviant from the conventional norms of transport and the vested interests – oil, automobile, megaproject – around which those models have been designed. As such, bicycles have – at the very least – this willingness to deviate in common…
  • Britain is on borrowed time: the future of Scottish independence

    Gerry Hassan
    20 Sep 2014 | 1:19 am
    The British state has bought itself some precious time. If it does not use it wisely, this debate will be back in a decade and Scotland will produce a second referendum. Scotland voted No to independence. In answer to the question, ‘Should Scotland be an independent country?’, 1,617,989 voted Yes (44.7%) and 2,001,926 voted No (55.3%) in a massively impressive turnout of 84.6%: the highest ever anywhere in the UK in post-war times. The result, and campaign, will be rightly mulled over and analysed for years, but in the fast moving aftermath it is important to lay down some thoughts and…

    In the aftermath of the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, this series of snapshots provides a glimpse of the visual marks left behind. The inequity of development and the spectre of mass protest continue to haunt the cityscape. Aside from a humiliating 7-1 defeat, Brazil seems to have come out of the FIFA World Cup 2014 rather well. The violent mass protests that dominated international headlines at the initial kick-off were quickly stomped out, and despite much negative press about raging inequality, corruption, violence and the deaths of various construction works, most coverage once the event…
  • So what is a people’s constitutional convention?

    What exactly is a people's constitutional convention and does Labour's proposal meet those criteria? Over the past couple of weeks, as the referendum campaign reached its climax in Scotland, a concept has suddenly started springing up all over the place in English political debate: the idea of a constitutional convention. (The Welsh National Assembly called for UK-wide constitutional convention in 2012.) In a letter to The Times on September 10, 19 experts on UK democracy set the proposal out as follows: ‘It is time for a UK-wide constitutional convention, on the lines of recent conventions…

INR 695.00 Approaching terror When I started reading Rustom Bharucha’s latest book, Terror and Performance, it immediately became an intensely personal and gripping engagement.  It was difficult to read in a single attempt as the mind kept wandering from one unpleasant moment in our recent annals of terror to another in some of which I had also become an unwitting part – mostly as a spectator. From the beginning, my reading was a conversation with Bharucha’s text through…
  • Urban Warfare and the Sounds of Silence

    Anonymous
    18 Sep 2014 | 10:45 pm
    Photo courtesy Maatram I was sitting at my desk in Colombo 08 yesterday and all of a sudden, a somewhat loud but also muffled ‘boom’ broke the usual afternoon sounds of traffic on the road to Parliament. My first thought was a memory from December 2006, a much louder BOOM from two blocks away that marked the assassination attempt in Kollupitiya on the defence secretary by the LTTE. That boom was the loudest single noise I’d ever heard and was followed by a stunning sort of utter silence – the birds went quiet, there were no voices and even the cars seemed to have cut their engines.

    We are now two weeks into the NFL season, and much of the coverage continues to be about non-football issues, much to the league’s chagrin. Off-the-field issues are dominating the airwaves, and understandably so. Hot on the heels of the whole Ray Rice/domestic violence mess, Adrian Peterson, one of the league’s biggest stars, has been charged with child abuse. A grand jury in Texas indicted Peterson on Friday for beating his son with a switch as a form of punishment. Photos showed cuts and bruises all over the child’s legs and backside from the incident. He was deactivated…

    On NPR the other day I heard Graham Hill talking about the project LifeEdited. That prompted me to watch his TED talk about his idea, “Edit Your Life.” Hill talks about his own efforts to edit his living space, and proposes how much simpler, and, surprisingly, better, our lives might be if we made do with a lot less. His premise is straightforward. He suggests that we edit ruthlessly, “clear the arteries of our lives,” cut the extraneous, and stem inflow. As a culture, we have become obsessed with more. Although today Americans have much more space than 50 years ago, Hill says, a…
