(015) Democracy: A New Definition

Rating: 2.9

'Of the people
By the people
For the people'

- Abraham Lincoln

Of'f' the people,
B'u'y the people,
F'a'r the people.

- 'Nawab' Rajendran

With just three letters, he redefined and tore away the pseudo face of Democracy. He was a great investigative journalist and legal activist. Sure he was the inner consciusness of Kerala. Nawab Rajendran was brutally tortured by POLICE during seventies. This man lived for us, the have-nots.
He will not sleep, even in his grave....

Great piece. My 'Combing operation' talks about the other side of Indian democracy. You can have a look. It's a bit long though.
