DEALING WITH PELTERS
By Cecil Victor
The situation in Jammu and Kashmir has been going downhill at a rapid pace. The Supreme Court of India had to intervene to try and find a replacement/alternative to the infamous “pellet gun”. Meanwhile, the local commander in the Kashmir valley had a bright idea which he implemented with great elan – he tied a local to the bonnet of a vehicle and drove it into a crowd of stonepelters. As was to be expected no stones hit the trussed up target. My objection to this procedure is that tying up a lowly daily wage earner to the bonnet of a targeted military vehicle hardly serves the political purpose...
MODI: MANDATED MAN!
RAWpapaya/Satya Pal Singh
With the sharp rise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an unrivalled leader in India’s political firmament, following the pivotal 2017 state elections that have sent political opponents biting the dust, the most part of the nation now goes saffron, assuming nationalist fervor under a hard-working and exceptionally serving Prime Minister. A leader who is greatly revered globally and passionately loved by patriotic Indians, Modi has registered this stellar win via the popular mandate that delivers a sledge-hammer blow to all the anti-national elements who had sought to hijack Indian democracy, spreading venom in the country’s highly diverse society...

CHOP SUEY FOREIGN POLICY
By Cecil Victor
Indian foreign policy looks like stir-fried chop suey sought to be created by a drunken Sous Chef. Most of the food has been flying out of the wok and onto the floor messing up the kitchen in the most disagreeable manner. Indian foreign policy has never been in such disarray as it is in current times. The issue of visas for an ethnic Uiyghur dissident and several others who have a contra view of Chinese occupation of Tibet would have appeared appropriate as retaliation for Chinese support to the bloodthirsty Islamic fundamentalists...

Miss Italia & Spicy Aroma!
By Charu Satnarine
/Montreal Bureaux Chief
The place that has been around since the late nineties and gained such popularity that the owners had to move across the street and build a new, bigger location to accommodate their fanatics. Located on Victoria Street in Greenfield Park, the décor – including a grand water fountain out front – is just beautiful to pass on your way to the two-floor establishment.
Almost two minutes after entering, we (a party of four) were seated, despite the busy lunch rush and seemingly hectic atmosphere of the restaurant...
