  1. Rather than asking “Let’s ask ourselves”, It should really be “Let me ask myself – What was I doing in ABIDe for five years?”. And you should ask your mentor “what was he doing during his tenure as Commissioner of BMP and Chief Secretary of Karnataka?”.

    The “Politician-Retired Bureaucrat-Servile Intellectual” problem is also very real. Retired Bureaucrats, Former Professors, NGO’s pretending to be neutral and power hungry intellectuals also get co-opted into the corrupt nexus to get perks in Vidhana Soudha.

    That is why we see no progress on issues that afflict citizens.
