Busy, busy, busy in New Delhi! V.S. Naipaul attended a sitting of the Indian Supreme Court today, at which bail was granted to Kumar Badal, a reporter for the controversial Internet news portal Tehelka:

Lending a touch of drama, Nobel Laureate Sir V.S. Naipaul attended the apex court to show solidarity with Tehelka, where he is a director of the holding company. "I am here just to look and see. I am concerned about the matter," Naipaul told presspersons as he walked along with his wife Nadira and Tehelka editor Tarun Tejpal.

Read the report on here. Pakistan's Daily Times gives a good summary of the background to the case.
