Sanders

The Bernie Sanders Story

Bernie Sanders, the seventy-eight-year-old senator from Vermont, did not emerge as the Democratic nominee in either of his two presidential bids (in 2016, and 2020), but he is said to have reshaped the American politics with his youth-led movement for sweeping a much-needed change in the country.

When Bernie Sanders first started seriously entertaining the prospect of bidding for the presidency, in 2014, he never used phrases like, ‘As President, I will…’, or ‘When I am President…’, instead he always talked about building movements and educating people. Even when he announced his candidacy, one would have expected a big rally in his home state, but all he did was walk out of the Senate, and held a ten-minute conference with a scrum of reporters, and headed back to work. So, the first words of his ‘political revolution’ were, ‘We don’t have an endless amount of time. I’ve got to get back.’

Modernism

The Era of Modernism

 

I had heard the term “modern art” being used to describe, more often than not, abstract art. Thus, in my head, art that focused on colors, textures, and shapes, rather than accurate depiction, was considered modern art. However, that’s not the whole story; it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Modern art forms a part of a much larger cultural movement that dates back to the twentieth-century – Modernism. As the word suggests, Modernism took shape around the belief in the progress of society and was a revolt against the traditional values of realism. It was based on a ‘utopian vision’ of society that arose from the extensive changes taking place in Western society in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Put on your top hats and bowler hats as we visit the late 1800s.

romanticism

The Era of Romanticism

 

The word ‘romantic’, today, is often correlated with the word ‘love’, and is used to describe either the genre of movies or a person. But, where does this word and the concept of Romanticism come from? Romanticism was an intellectual, social, and literary movement that started in the 18th century, originating from Western Europe. Romanticism was the attitude or the ‘way of doing’ which characterized works of art, literature, architecture, painting, music, etc. in Western civilization and continued till about the second half of the 19th century.

GST

Obstacle in the trouble-free GST regime

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) was brought into force on 1st July 2017 under the Constitutional Act (101st Amendment , 2016. It was incorporated for two basic reasons: first, it would simplify the tax collection process by avoiding the cascading effect of taxation; second, it would increase the revenue of the government.

The Introduction of GST was considered a historic and landmark decision in India’s fiscal administration. There are several reasons to support that GST is better than our old indirect tax regime. First, it leads to frictionless commerce between the states. Second, taxes are buoyant, meaning that if the GDP of the country grows, the tax collection will increase along with it. Third, it leads to removal of the cascading effect of “tax on tax” , meaning that GST subsumes various state and central taxes thus reducing  the burden on the customers.

Renaissance

The Era of Renaissance

‘Renaissance’ is an Italian word, meaning ‘rebirth’ or ‘revival’. Over the last centuries this word has come to acquire new meanings and connotations. Renaissance, as we understand today, refers to a period in European history associated with major social and cultural developments between the 14th and 17th centuries. Believed to have played a major role in bridging the gap between the Middle Ages and modern-day civilisation, Renaissance was the beginning of a transition from darkness to light. Interestingly, prior to the 19th century, these major socio-cultural developments in Europe were not codified as Renaissance.
