Dharma Kumar - I


I was distressed to read AM’s remarks about my long-standing friend and former colleague Dharma Kumar in your issue of March 4. They are nasty, spiteful and vacuous. Although published in ‘Calcutta Diary’, they have nothing to do with Calcutta; or with economics, or politics, or political economy. AM may not care for his own reputation, but many of us do care for the reputation of Economic and Political Weekly which has been tarnished by the publication of this piece of gratuitous malice. Why was it published? I have heard that AM’s party has advised him to take rest from politics; will the editor of Economic and Political Weekly kindly advise him to take rest from his ‘Calcutta Diary’?
