Responding to Mr. Vir Sanghvi.

Our self-confessed member of secular establishment, Mr. Vir Sanghvi has published this in view of latest court verdict on Godhra case. (Link with details on verdict)

Here are Deshdaaz's quick and initial observations on the post by Mr. Sanghvi.

Dear Mr. Sanghvi,

Wrote to you on twitter and again writing here(talk about 140 chars limits!). Your article is very interesting in many respects.

1) The timing of the article : Post Nira Radia gate, you & other journos(Barkh Dutt to be precise) desperately seek to claim back the space ceded to upcoming journalists. Let me point out the obvious that it takes years to build respect,moment to loose.

2) This article is indicative of secular establishment acknowledging tough road ahead(painted saffron!!) on the way back to power in 2014.

3) It is also an inkling of rift within secular establishment and your article serves to limit the fallout by drawing attention of the stakeholders of the establishment AND at the same time personally score some points on the blackboard of Narendra Modi :), an indeed intelligent maneuver Mr. Sanghvi.

Lastly, for whatever reason(s) behind, it is refreshing to see a New Delhi based writer to able to call spade a spade. Believe Mr. Sanghvi deserve pat for it.
