Rajan Kola Case

I just finished reading the Memories of a Father an English transalation by Neelan of Prof T.V.Eachara Varier's Orachante Ormakkurippukal , about his Son P. Rajan's arrest and Murder during the Emergency Imposed on India from June 1975 to March 1977 .

I do not want to give a commentry on this, except that this period is remembered with terror even now by my father's generation, as whatever i say will not do justice to it.

P.S. Malayalis know this incident as the Rajan Kola Case.

Anderson Cooper : Plain Speak ?

Very much so ..

Is he still opinionated ? Yes he is.
But there is a certain freshness, a level of incisiveness in his reporting and the way he asks questions that is a huge welcome change from the usual media drama that i have got to see here.

I hope he doesn't get tied down by the role of a news anchor cause he is an out and out reporter and he ought to be left free, not tied down to 10 - 12 everyday in the studio.

I wouldn't see this CNN time change from 7-8 to 10-12 necessarily as a promotion, and my guess is that so wouldn't he.
