As Anand Teltumbde is about to go to jail, an editor pays tribute
The Wire / by S Anand
S Anand, Teltumbde’s publisher at Navayana, recounts his uncompromising clarity and forthrightness.
“Every thinking Indian is a potential ‘urban Maoist’; it is just the mercy of the police that such Indians are not all under arrest.” Anand Teltumbde, 30 June 2018, in ‘Economic and Political Weekly.’
To expect such small mercies – because you studied or taught at IITs and IIMs, because you have a PhD in cybernetics, because you chair Big Data Analytics at a premier management institute, and because you are married to Babasaheb Ambedkar’s granddaughter – is clearly folly.
