Patriotism vs Jingoism

Postby raja » Sun Jan 28, 2018 5:52 am

Ok, some of this is in the Indian context (and therefore, references too), but I think the principles are interesting in themselves.

As with most pieces I read, I don't agree with everything this piece says - and Ram Guha does tend to get carried away and generalise. :-)
Even so, even with its flaws, it's a piece I found interesting reading.
For non-Indian readers, please bear with his writing style. He's writing for an Indian audience - maybe this influences his writing, where he often takes pains to explain, instead of leaving things at a conceptual level. :-)

There are people who cannot find anything right in what Modi does. The same people cannot find anything wrong in what Rahul Gandhi, Mamta Bannerji, Lalu Yadav, Mulayam Yadav, Mayavati, Kanhaiyya Kumar , Sitaram Yechhuri, Owaisi etc do. Ram Guha belongs to that category.
