All parties change with time...but hankering for ideas past their expiry date is something else.

That’s why I said the so called “dissent” won’t survive. This is nothing more than abusing the lexicon: In India, loss of regime-privilege is called “dissent.” (Though I hasten to add that Prof Palshikar is not that kind of intellectual.)

Interesting but 1) Any organized govt curbs on freedom? 2) “Urban naxal” may be offensive but can name calling quell dissent? cf Sakharov+ Liu Xiaobo for real “dissent chilling.” 3) How abt a US type First Amendment—a speech free for all? Not sure if “dissent” will survive that.

Shorn of politics and ideological fights, I suspect it is a matter of how beliefs—of investors, individuals and bankers—went haywire. Plus the errors in expectations were phenomenal. The new book by Gennaioli and Shleifer has a neat model on this topic.

One q Vivek: why would Rahul do that? When Cong was in power (2007-14) it brought back pre-reform ideas with a vengeance. The party’s organizational weakness ensured its dependence on activists etc. I suspect that combination remains too entrenched for any meaningful change.

Thanks Sash! Pleased that you like my story. But if the copy seems orderly, the ground situation is pretty chaotic.
