NGOs, the State and World Capitalism

This article, published in the 13 December 1986 issue of EPW, critiques a bill that would have set up a national council of voluntary agencies to regulate and establish a code of conduct for NGOs. Given that the role of NGOs remains debated even now, this article sheds light on how NGOs could be depolicised and distanced from those engaged in struggles against the government and their vested interests. 

Culture of Communalism in Gujarat

This article attempts to examine the larger and rapidly spreading communalisation of the Indian polity as a whole and relating it to the extent possible, to similar trends elsewhere in the world, identifying those individuals and groups responsible for spreading this culture of violence within and across regions. It attempts to develop a broader understanding of the rarity of the threat posed by what is happening in Gujarat.
