If there is one thing the JNU row has taught this country, it is that there is a group of politicians, lawyers, goons and news anchors who believe they are superhero guardians of nationalism.
All of them claimed to uphold this or that. Stand for all that is right (a most apt turn of phrase). But these goodly apples, it turned out, were rotten to the core; all of them villains with Cheshire cat smiles. They are the people to whom JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar referred when he said he seeks freedom in the country and not from it.
Artist Namaah Kumar added her brush to Kanhaiya's broad strokes with a series of catty, sardonic illustrations she uploaded to Facebook. Each of them is as potent as the words Kanhaiya spoke on his release from prison. He called it revolution. She calls is JNUstice league.
