Description

Notes from An Indian Conservative is a compilation of Jaithirth (Jerry) Rao’s eclectic columns, which regularly appear in The Indian Express. While Rao’s tone and tenor are not meant for the feeble a heart, his bold and bewildering insights into issues of national and international importance have intrigued readers of every hue.This book collects his writing on several subjects, among them political economy, art, literature, culture, international finance, foreign policy, terrorism and obituary. Often, his political positions have been polemical, such as his support for the Bush position in international affairs backed by The Indian Express, and from the National Rural Employment Programme, which succeeded in upsetting his free-market-believing friends. Being a columnist means that, on occasion, one does offend friends,’ he says, in response. ‘So be it. Such crosses are cheerfully borne!’
