Even if it bores you, please pay close attention to English newspapers in India for their agenda these days. It's a dangerous game to break up India, Balkanize it.

You could find these tell-tale signs by their front and edit pages. These are considered "heart" of a newspaper. For example, Indian Express, which is more brazen than others, today makes no mention of Indian home minister Rajnath Singh informing the Lok Sabha that key documents related to the preparation of the second affidavit in the Ishrat Jahan case were not traceable in his ministry and an internal probe was on. (Times of India and Hindustan Times did make it a front page story. Kudos.)

Then comes the edit page. The Express op-Ed page has two pieces; one by Archana Prasad, who feels that BJP is polarizing opinion but since she is a professor of JNU we could take it with a pinch of salt. The second is an issue I want your utmost attention--it's a piece of Harsh Mander with the scary headline: "Can the Indian Spring be far behind?" (Interestingly, there is no mention of Indian Spring in the article!!! But Express is a zealot these days, fit to be pulled up by regulating agencies.)

This Indian Spring is a take on Arab Spring. To put the bare-facts of Arab Spring, it's hailed in western and our media as spontaneous people's uprisings against repression, from Libya and Egypt to Syria and Yemen, the so-called Middle East North Africa (MENA).

Christopher L. Brennan, in his book "Fall of the Arab Spring: From Revolution to Destruction" views this widespread Arab upheaval, not as authenticgrass-root movements for democracy but as a US-engineered destabilization moves.

Similarly, Ahmed Bensaad's 2011 book "L'Arabesque Americaine" concerns the US government's role in instigating, funding and coordinating the Arab Spring "revolutions".

Wikileaks cables also support covert funding for such activities. We all know Libya, Syria, Yemen and Egypt are worse off for these Spring revolutions. Here you have Mr Mander/Indian Express praying for an "Indian Spring" of similar catastrophe to Balkanize our India.

Mr Mander keeps writing edit pieces in Hindustan Times and Indian Express. It's time readers know about his background.

Mander, a former IAS officer, was a member of the National Advisory Council, which was termed as Sonia Gandhi's kitchen cabinet.

Mander "voluntarily took retirement" but media termed it as "quitting," anguished as he was because of the 2002 Gujarat riots.

He wrote an op-ed in Times of India, post-Godhra riots, which the Press Council of India (PCI) called "LIES."

The Press Council of India reprimanded Mander by stating, "guilty of spreading false rumours about alleged Hindu atrocities" in his column: "Hindustan Hamara" dated 20/3/2002. The decision by the PCI was pronounced on 30/6/2002 vide decision reference 14/06/02-03

His modus operandi has been described thus: to organize protests through NGOs against multi-nationals or nuclear projects entry into India. These companies then pay "consulting fees" ..., later these protests by NGOs fizzle out or vanish without trace.

For his hard work, Mander was presented by Sonia Gandhi as the recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi National Sadbhavana award in a function attended by Jstice A.M. Ahmadi (the judge who let Union Carbide off the hook).
