The Fading Aura of the Helmsman
Narendra Modi’s aura is bound to diminish considering that he has been at the helm of Gujarat for more than a decade. However, what matters at the end of the day is who will triumph in the Assembly poll, and it will be Modi, despite his old colleague Keshubhai Patel floating his own outfit.
Refer to ‘The Iron Man Begins To Rust’ by Rana Ayyub, 10 November. Thank you for your wonderful article on Narendra Modi. But I beg to differ with you on your constant critique of him. Morality and neutrality demand that you also speak out against the anti-Sikh rioters supported by the Congress.
VENKATESH KUMAR NA, ON EMAIL I have lost count of the number of articles on Modi published in TEHELKA in the past few months. Irrespective of whether you write good or bad about him, the photographs still give him all the publicity he could have hoped for. The world knows of his misdeeds and his culpability in the reckless slaughter of the Muslims in Gujarat. So please let him be condemned. I feel bad to see Gopalkrishna Gandhi in the same edition. His picture on the cover would have been more appropriate.
