There is something very terribly wrong with this interviewer's mind. The interviewer statement like the below one is highly debatable given the double game played by authors like Mr Ramachandra Guha. My problem with the statement is the word "liberal". In my view it does not suit Mr Guha enough to put it straightforwardly. I do follow his works in social and economic issues in India:
- "Meet Ramachandra Guha, one of the few intellectuals in India, who is a liberal in the classic sense of the term."
Nonetheless, for the below statement he has to be congratulated for his boldness:
- “Rahul Gandhi is completely mediocre… He has no original ideas, no heart for sustained and hard work. He should find another profession,”
It is really worth to read the full interview here.
