I also never imagined 3 decades back that a person of foreign origin without any basic understanding of the ethos of this country could become so powerful as to wield total control over the mightiest political party in India and then control the destinies of this country for a full decade without actually occupying any official position of responsibility.Thus what Mr. Iyer did not imagine(or want) not want indeed happened and more such things can happen in the future..
Muhammad Ghori conquered Delhi in 1192, and not in 1152. So from 1192 to 1857 it is 666 years as Mr. Aiyar says.
Mr. Aiyar :A man who is disdainful of tea sellers and by inferance poor hawkers, a man who goes to Pakisthan and asks the PK people to do something to get rid of the elected PM of India, a man who carries the name Aiyar ( brahmin) and gets elected to become an MP from Myladuthurai by licking the feet of anti-brahmn Sri Karunanidhi . How come this man was elected as MP?
In days to come he will come out with worse and get away with elections in 2019. I do not know why Aiyyar mentioned Nehru, that great man, the only polymath statesman of the century when talking about Modi.Nehru appealed to the good in people.Modi appeals to the baseness, evil in people and carry them which is easier
As usual incisive comment by Mr. Iyer i am waiting to see the dumb followers of the guj rat business gang sycophants to rant and rave against him.
