The Lone Ranger of Loony Hindutva versus…?

A somewhat tenuous peace has been achieved in the ranks of the Bharatiya Janata Party after the “nasty jolt” it received in the May 2009 general elections. But a detente eludes journalists aligned with the BJP.

The provocation? Dasgupta’s piece in the Wall Street Journal on reinvigorating the BJP.
