Last chance for Das Gupta to avoid ignominy
[I condemn Peter’s book, … I reject Peter’s book as a biography. -- Manoj Das]
These two phrases severally constitute expressing severe disapproval and we must take them at face value. All that Das says besides is part of the larger debate and can be fine tuned subsequently. This itself is a great victory and we congratulate Das for this forthright advisory. It is surprising, however, why this is being seen with suspicion and derision.
Be that as it may, Das Gupta has lost one of his last few props in the bargain. Now lame and desolate in his lone lane, he better calls it a day as soon as possible. [TNM]
