This chapter from this book by SV Raju on Masani is illuminating. I’ve provided some annotations in blue. ===CHAPTER=== There were two reasons for Masani moving away from socialism—his disenchantment with the ‘Left’ in general and Marxism in particular. The second was the influence of Gandhiji, which we discussed, in the previous chapter. A London […]

Review of Sagarika Ghose’s book, “Why I am a Liberal”

Sagarika has put in her heart and soul into an excellent book that I strongly commend to every Indian. The book is an engaging attempt to educate a country that has understood liberty only imperfectly through sporadic literary flourishes but has never really grown out of its feudal mai-baap mindset towards government. Gurcharan Das’s India […]

Murry Bartow scribbles in his notebook at all hours of the day. Everyone around Mo Ostin Basketball Center sees the first-year assistant turned interim head coach toiling away, but redshirt junior Prince Ali admits no one really knows what Bartow has written in those pages.
