    We have now an entire post-1991 generation of adult Indians for whom the ambiguities of coalition politics, a volatile Hindu nationalism and intense caste politics are simply parts of the landscape—as are the market economy, dynamic growth rates, traffic hell and the electronic media. They have been reared in the age of economics. If in the 20th century India’s search was for political freedom, today most Indians are in search of wealth—and power.

    I even thought that that guy – who seemed to be just a simpering Englishman – represented, in his icy immobility, the will to resist the change that Smith and Carlos were invoking in their silent protest. But I was wrong.

    The launch of the second volume of President Pranab Mukherjee's memoirs The Turbulent Years—1980-1996 last month has sparked off a debate on whether he should have released his memoirs while still in office. No President of the Republic has written a memoir ever, even after their term got over, and purists question whether Mukherjee should have waited till he demits office.

Your cover story on the suicide of Rohith Vemula is a fine example of how to write a distorted story. Except for the fact that Rohith committed suicide, every other paragraph comprises half-truths or falsified statements. Your correspondent has solicited quotes from people who support her biased version.
