This very day 50 years ago, two things happened - Man landed on the moon, and Indira Gandhi nationalised our banks.

My column, on Bank Nationalisation - one of THE most tragic events in modern Indian history - and how it transpired, day upon cruel day. newslaundry.com/2013/09/25/inc…
Remembering fondly, on this momentous day, a TRULY great Indian: Rustom Cavasjee Cooper.

When Mrs Indira Gandhi nationalised our banks, he stood bravely, he stood alone, and he fought her. Tooth and nail.

He lost. WE lost.

THIS, is why Indira Gandhi nationalised our banks.

Perhaps, under Narendra Government-has-no-business-to-be-in-business Modi, THIS is why they remain so. (ref: Emergency, by Coomi Kapoor)
I don't believe this. You had five years to halt or reverse this immeasurable damage.

Instead, capital infusion by the Modi government into this black hole has been the maximum any government has carried out in DECADES.

Truly, Congress Yukt BJP.
Excellent decision. If I may use an analogy, the garbage strewn all over the street has been swept and collected and dumped in a wheelbarrow. But the wheelbarrow still exists.

The next step is to wheel it to the nearest landfill, where socialism rots.
