AFPSA and the Indian corporates

These are my thoughts on reading the article by Somasekhar Sundaresan on the topic above and I had posted it on the Business Standard site under the article.

The article has multiple targets and it hits them all well. The Army, the Union government, the Indian corporate sector, a popular singer and even concepts like moral equivalence, etc. It does not even spare the public that sides with the Army or the Union government. Space constraints must have come in the way of commenting on the role of the militants, their external sponsors, anti-India outfits in Kashmir, the role of the political parties in the State, the legacy, etc.

I suppose moral clarity, moral certitude and moral outrage are possible only if one manages to see one side of things and does not complicate oneself with abstract notions like objectivity, history, context, multiple perspectives, etc.
