  • OT but where’s the comment section for the Iranian Arsonists article?

      Sorry about that, it should be there now!

    Okay, I know this means I’m a degenerate racist, but why is Rahul Gandhi so very white? He doesn’t look like any Indian I’ve ever met.

    • His mother is Italian, and his father was half Parsi (zoroastrian immigrants from Persia in the middle ages), and half Kashmiri upper class, so I guess that explains his appearance.

  • Dear Prof. Mead, your recent comments are simply incorrect, and the spin you cast on events is very very poor analysis, and shows a complete lack of understanding of Indian politics on your part. Narendra Modi addressed less than 5 campaign rallies, as he knew the party was going to lose big and didn’t want it staining his reputation. So to say that he campaigned hard is plain lies. The triumph in Karnataka had absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Gandhi or Mr. Modi. (In fact, Mr. Gandhi’s main plank has been youth involvement, and the Karnataka Youth Congress leader in Karnataka was actually denied a nomination in these elections, prompting his resignation!). I don’t know if you’re misinformed or you’re just trying to promote some sort of Gandhi-Modi face off for your readers’ entertainment, but you need to take another look at your sources of information.
