The Telegraph (Calcutta) reported last Friday: 'Governor M.K. Narayanan, the chancellor of the state’s universities, today said Maoism was becoming “fashionable” in varsities and added that a “section of the civil society was feeling encouraged and taking part in protests”'

What on earth does India's ex-intelligence chief mean by this crude and undemocratic statement? He seems to be using the same colonial strategies that he so masterfully employed against the poor Eelam Tamils during Sri Lanka's brutal civil war. Mr. Narayanan should wash his mouth with soap and water.

Tomorrow the Chhattisgarh High Court will issue a ruling on Binayak's bail request. My faith in India's judiciary remains extremely fragile. It is heartening to know that the UN, EU and the world will be watching.
