The Amartya Sen Guide to passing off petty pique as high principle

Even as he leaves Nalanda University, Amartya Sen is leaving a bad taste in the mouth. At 82, he ought to be retiring gracefully, not making a fuss over it by couching it as a fight for academic autonomy. #Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan #Nalanda University #Amartya Sen's Critique of Modi
