The intelligentsia of ‘New India’ is making quite a splash, outside the traditional power structures with Sanjeev Sanyal, Hindol Sengupta, Vikram Sampath and now newly minted cultural diplomat Amish. SOAS educated Anglophile Swapan Da is ofcourse in the Rajya Sabha who bet on the BJP when it was unfashionable to do so.
I forgot to add, all these gentlemen are the new intellectual elite of the country. Even Ram Guha is undergoing a repivot. Interesting times.
