My column in the Daily Beast is about the Gandhi family's reaction to the Delhi gangrape. Please do take a look: How Rahul Gandhi Blew the Indian Rape Crisis

Comments welcome, as always.

I must say, for someone of low intellect and mediocre talent, you've finally said something worthwhile. Keep it up! Some day you just might become a writer!

Hey Dilip,

Truly, it's a kickass article which if read by Rahul /Sonia Gandhi themselves make them wonder on it. Although the whole world has been blurting their thoughts about them, but some phrases written by you really made me think.

Frankly, his action of commuting by local train didnt really woo me as 1 day of travelling by train along with trustworthy security, is not worth giving an award. And more than condolences for the rape cases what we require is a quick action by them. For females like me, pepper sprays, weapons, alertness all would go for a toss if luck is with those criminals.

The rape cases being put on a fast track is some relief but this hasn't reduced the rape cases in Delhi or any other city of India.

Hi Dilip,

Just discovered that you've been writing for the daily beast, with no mention of the articles on your blog!

I haven't been able to find an RSS feed anywhere on their site... do you plan to post notification of the articles here?
