A letter to the President of India
India as a liberal and open society?
Recognize the transforming power of the individuals, institutions and the new technologies!
India as it is, a liberal and open society? Not yet? Not fully yet.
Our Constitution is a great document, it exceeds in its intrinsic qualities, its vision and wisdom that it has stood the test of the times. We have also mature state institutions, our Parliament, our Judiciary and Executive and a free press, now made more free and independent by the growing power of the visual media, the TV networks and the rapid spread of the internet users, give Indians and the Indian ethos a rare power and sensitivity.
