okay, let's also not get crazy
As inspirational as this anti-graft, anti-corruption movement has been, let’s not call the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, a corrupt leader.
He may have exhibited cognitive dissonance as regards the public mood, been adrift from the common man’s problems and even exhibited timidity in tackling issues of a draconian scale, like corruption.
But let’s not accuse the one honest man in politics, who has been incorruptible through 40 years of public service, of being corrupt. It’s times like this where enormous consequences hang in the balance that we need to be discerning and thoughtful as a people.
It’s possible to do this while being uncompromising of the spirit and goals of the movement. Let’s not lose our ability to see through things and see things through.
