The recent "debate" carried out in this newspaper between Nadira Naipaul and Tarun Vijay ... would have made for unadulterated hilarity were it not for the reality it obfuscated. Not unlike the obscenely choreographed WWE wrestling matches on TV, what ensued was farcical yet macabre.... What surfaces when you treat these two players not as opponents but as two heads of the same Ravan?

Ruchir Joshi, writing in today's Hindustan Times, takes on the Naipauls, Panchjanya editor Tarun Vijay, & the BJP-VHP-RSS, all at once.
