at India’s leading public intellectuals whose greatness is taken for granted but whose sophistry is overlooked. Ravi Shanker Kapoor exposes them as cowardly thinkers incapable of challenging conventional wisdom.Importantly, it’s not the personal follies and foibles of these worthies that Kapoor finds troubling but their unquestioning acceptance of failed Leftist theories, and slavish adherence to politically “correct” ideas. Smug in their acceptance by an adoring Left-liberal media they are blind to empirical evidence which flies in the face of their positions, oblivious both to opportunities thrown up by changed times and to the clear and present dangers of the status quo, whether it be the scourge of socialism or the malevolence of Islamic terror. Thus the spreading of lies, a betrayal of both their own vocation and of the Indian people.Ravi Shanker Kapoor uses his pen as a butcher wields his knife. In Kapoor’s abattoir, no cow is holy enough to be spared — and no reputation hallowed enough to be revered. Combining journalistic experience with solid scholarship, Kapoor relishes in taking on some of the biggest icons in India’s public discourse. His is an original voice.
