Dear Friends,

Pheroze Vincent from The Telegraph quotes my post yesterday when reporting on the Sangrur bypoll result. Thank you Pheroze.

I think the newspaper is being cheeky placing an astonished Bhagwant Mann, Panjab CM from AAP’s picture. After all, Sangrur is his constituency and informal AAP headquaters in Panjab.

Dear Friends,

I am not sure if it is the frequency and intensity of assault on civil society or same old apathy, I am a bit surprised how quickly we have forgotten the Farmers Protest. In those days, more than a year, we had all become bigger than ourselves. Now we are shrunk again. I wonder, if we do not mind?

It is always a pleasure to speak to someone who who takes deep interest in India. Professor Kenneth Bo Nielsen is from Norway and I have always learnt from how he looks at India.

A few weeks ago, at almost six months since the Farmers Protest were suspended, we spoke at the Nordic Asia podcast on the legacy of the protest. Thank you Kenneth for taking the voice to Europe.

Please listen. Link to podcast in the page. 30 minutes, English.
