  • Blog: With speech to industry, Arvind Kejriwal makes his case

    Arvind Kejriwal's recent address at the industry association - CII (Confederation of Indian Industries) - in Delhi took everyone by surprise. There was worry that AAP was being overtaken by Leftist ideologues who wanted to take India back to the Nehruvian socialist era. But Kejriwal spoke a language dictated by neither the communists nor the market fundamentalists. His speech appealed to common sense. He is not against business but against crony capitalism. He is keen on…

I was curled up in agony for 20 years’: Padma Lakshmi

  London: It happened like clockwork, every month, for decades. The pain would leave Padma Lakshmi ‘balled up in bed’ for days at a time. There were cramps, bloating, nausea and shock-like sensations running along the length of her legs. And once the agony had abated, she suffered crushing fatigue and mood swings that affected every area of her life. Despite these debilitating symptoms, the model-turned-TV-chef came to believe it was just part of life, as doctors dismissed her ‘women’s problems’. Embarrassed that people would think she was exaggerating, she admitted: ‘I thought I was just being a wimp.’ The 42-year-old, once married to celebrated author Salman Rushdie, says today: ‘I was told that some women get menstrual cramps badly and some don’t and it was normal for me because my mother had them. I [...]…
