Being Liberal in C.I.

The good folks over at Blogbharti asked me to ruminate on Being Liberal in Contemporary India.

So I did.

BAddict, I owe it to you, actually!

Alex, thanks.

BV and PM, if you ask twice, I can hardly refuse. So: Not the Queen of Gulbarba.

1. The middle para in there, the liberal definition of conservative, read rather close in tone to how a conservative would define a liberal. Maybe one needs to hold to those definitions to pass as a liberal.

Reminds me of your thesaurus quote: stick_in_the_mud, reactionary, closed-minded etc.

... in a post where you accused conservatives of attacking liberals or calling them names :-)

2. Elitism: Slightly surprising. I kind of agree with Anand from the earlier comment thread:

"Being elite due to intelligence or entrepreneurship is different from being elite because of one's caste or inherited wealth."

Jai
