(The Hindu, 8th March, 2017)
Poor The Hindu! It is trying very hard to establish its neoliberal credentials and to please the powers that be for years now, but it is still cursed for being anti-Hindu.
To provide some context, this ‘cartoon’ was published in The Hindu a couple of days after my mother suffered a major stroke, which she barely survived and which left her paralyzed and cognitively impaired, not to mention other problems.
Initially she was couldn’t move even her right arm and leg. All of us were desperately looking for some signs of movement in at least her right arm and leg. So perhaps you can imagine how I felt when I looked at this just the day I got back to Varanasi, where I work.
