The journey of the Indian press
In the preface to his latest book, Mohandas Namishray traces the history of the modern Indian press starting with its founder, James Augustus Hicky.

In Maghar, politics over Kabir and intrusion into his sainthood
Dr Savita Bhimrao Ambedkar – for whom nothing mattered more than Ambedkar

डॉ. सविता भीमराव आंबेडकर, जिनके लिए आंबेडकर से महत्वपूर्ण कुछ भी न था
बाबा साहब आंबेडकर की दूसरी पत्नी सविता आंबेडकर को लेकर आंबेडकरवादियों में विवाद रहा है। एक ब्राह्मण परिवार की विदुषी डॉक्टर का सबकुछ छोड़कर एक दलित नेता की होकर रह जाने जैसी प्रगतिशीलता पर कम ही विचार किया गया है। डॉ सविता आंबेडकर से जुड़े संस्मरण बता रहे हैं मोहनदास नैमिशराय :

The qualities that made Kanshi Ram a Bahujan hero
Kanshi Ram’s politics was not confined to the Dalits. It aimed to build a Bahujan community that included the deprived sections of society. But after his passing, how did the politics become so parochial?
