TITHI BHATTACHARYA - Kanhaiya Kumar Stands in a Tradition Beyond the Nation-State
NB - This is a comment I have posted beneath this small article in The Wire:
A piece truly to be appreciated. I am glad the author has cited Mahatma Gandhi at this dark hour, a man vilified by all quarters in his own country, whose monumental love and compassion for humanity was a shining light in the darkness of our descent into madness. I hope the younger generation will yet have the courage to cut through hateful ideologies and stand with the students of JNU.
