Journal of Quest-India

Here is a great story in the Livemint, which gives you the death of a journal called Quest which was published for 20 years soon after India's Independence (political Independence as I often say!). Just one point:

  • Masani became one of the country’s most vocal advocates for a liberal economy. Culturally, the ICCF’s members had always found themselves closer to Ambedkar than to Gandhi. While some of them remained sceptical of Jawaharlal Nehru’s politics, others thought him a worthy counterweight to the advancing global influence of Mao Zedong.
Go and read the full story nicely narrated.
