1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within #DNJha & @thecaravanindia .

Here in this thread, I expose the lies he has been spreading about #NalandaUniversity . @SirPareshRawal sir had requested me long back to write on it.

Take this & ask him to respond should he have substance.
2/n Let us inspect the assertions of #DNJha, one by one. Does it not begin with his presidential speech of ICH in 2004?

Now, get these facts:
"Pag Sam Jon Zang" is a text written by "Sumpa Khan-Po Yece Pal Jor" who lived between 1702-75.

#AmartyaSen's great insight was that dreadful disasters (s/as mass starvation) do not happen in a democracy because news of the early signs of distress are seen, heard and responded by those in power.
That theory is being tested in #Modi's #India. And so far found wanting
A willingly controlled and spontaneously sycophantic media refuses to hold the Great Leader to account; such criticism as may be made by intellectuals and a remnant of the free press is silenced by the howls of mobs on social media. Free debate is replaced by adulatory paeans.
Respectful discussion of policy choices has been pushed aside by a Know-it-all leadership that adopts a We-Can-never-admit-to-any-failings style of governance that places false propaganda over real performance, empty spin over true substance.
