Obsession of polity fraud

Professor Indiresan wrote this a decade ago but true to this day:
  • Our present-day leaders no longer encourage sincere effort the way Gandhi did. They take their cue from Nehru about whom it was said that nothing grows under a banyan tree. Nehru stood tall mainly by making everyone around him small. Present-day leaders have become a caricature of Nehru: they surround themselves with pygmies only. They clip the wings of any that show promise to rise to great heights.
An earnest and sincere engagement with Ambedkar means we rethink the way our society is organised.
