Arts: The Week In Radio - It's easy to mock

BEWARE OF the dog - the distinguished installation artist Bill Fontana was the latest cultural postman to have his ankles nipped by the Airedale John Humphrys (Today, Radio 4, Thursday). Fontana had had the temerity to create a rather intriguing sound sculpture of waves breaking on the shore at Cape Trafalgar for the National Maritime Museum. The Airedale chortled rudely with ersatz mateyness, and the courteous and long-suffering American was abruptly faded out, leaving the Humph to go home to his Millennium Dome prints and Vera Lynn 78s.

The Saturday Profile: Sonia Gandhi, Indian Politician - The widow who would be queen

THIS WAS the week that Sonia Gandhi very nearly became India's new prime minister. Yesterday her scheme came unstuck, and the Congress, the party of which she is president, conceded that its attempt to glue together enough small parties to form a coalition had failed. But it was a close-run thing. And on the other side of the general election that now appears almost certain, it could well happen.

Gandhi stakes claim to India builds power base

THE SHAPE of India's new government, led by Sonia Gandhi's Congress party, will become clear by this evening, according to one of the key powerbrokers in the political wrangling.

Notebook: Gandhi's luck to miss the spiteful press

THINKING ABOUT the fate of England's football coach, as every newspaper and news-show insists we must, I have also been thinking about Mahatma Gandhi. Agreed: the connections made by the human mind are sometimes very strange.

Obituary: P. N. Haksar

P. N. HAKSAR was an intellectual powerhouse and one of India's most successful strategists who astutely established the political omnipotence of a weak prime minister, Indira Gandhi, through populist measures in the Sixties and early Seventies. He also served as ambassador to several countries and was one of India's few remaining Cold Warriors and die-hard socialists, instrumental in negotiating a timely military pact with the Soviet Union before the third war with neighbouring Pakistan in 1971, to counter any interference by its ally, the United States.

Cartier-Bresson: What's the story?

The photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson are now regarded as great art, but in the early part of his career, he was producing tough photojournalis m, covering everything from Gandhi's funeral to the new Kennedy administration.

Was Jinnah a saint or sinner?

Lord Mountbatten called Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, a vain, evil genius. A new film attempts to rehabilitate him as a tolerant secularist and as the model for a modern Muslim leader.

Historical Notes: People who refuse to believe in `never'

STUDY ANY paper any day and it will be full of cries of protest - in the news columns, letters to the editor or articles by columnists. Protest makes news - but do protest movements help to change the world? Are the wicked heresies of today destined to become, as the British political philosopher Harold Laski once observed, the sober commonplaces of tomorrow?
