Following up on the recent ban of a Gandhi biography: A week later, Gujarat remains the only state that has banned it. It is the also only state that enforces prohibition. Seeing how much Narendra Modi cares about enforcing values and nobility in his people, he would make for a great king. For a person running a government, not so much.


Salil Tripathi’s take. (Salil’s pieces on book bans are well-informed and a pleasure to read. For that, I wish we ban many more books.)
