Cam they distinguish a mortar from a motor, a gun from a howitzer,Read More
What’s worse than bomb-blast-a-day? Media and intellectual terror attacks. Have the fulminating columnists–Ram Puniyani, Sardesai, Shekar Gupta, et al, begun their orgasmic orchestration of–hey look!

Else, you wouldn’t have selectively quoted what you call my “conclusion.” Before the said “conclusion,”Read More
