Well, the trains are not all running on time. Nor are the majority of political leaders in jail. But is there nonetheless a similar form of oppression being felt today? The scope for political discourse has shrunk; a critic is a traitor; government agencies seem to have lost their independence; a tweet or a ‘like’ could get you arrested; respected artistes are accused of sedition; the media has lost its punch. Déjà vu or New India?
