Not competent to comment on the life of Abhijeet Banerjee, except that had he not been to Harvard and further on to work at MIT and taken to the citizenship of USA was all the situations available to him, had he remained in India somewhere or there about, I for myself doubt very much. However, he gives a sense of hope while hopelessness is all pervasive, except those who think India would be VISHWA GURU.

Good to get an inside insight of the most popular name of last few days. Also get an insight into why we see such good quality articles from the author, by knowing the author''s background and exposure. Kudos !!!

Fiends of wishes perceive facets of Elephant''s in room like Judges to err on side of Political correctness? if Economics of wants & preferences for maximized profits see Expanding markets as universe not Societal welfare & Good governance if Crowns lite not Commoner reductions further lead to Population''s entropy as misery unlike Incarcerations spree on belated opportunists to hide Govt self deceptions unless Courts reserve for last term as Opponents shadow to raise alarms in first! Filials on works frame of Society''s contracts basis of Individuals restrained over Bhaktlok free-Interest braggarts! if singular Life-sparks not just Parental jagarans like Cromwell until Gandhi or from Hatcheson-Hume to Smithsonian as Montesquieu to Rousseau sown underground seeds to sacrifice for bountiful lives Internet millennials too care platform of inclusive diversity lest imprison rest of World''s to allow freedom of choices else Brexits & Climate disasters too late even to pay off security?
