Response to N Ram

ArunN has written a response to N Ram following Ram’s speeches and writings about the thin-skinned-ness of Carnatic musicians; I loved this part, especially:

The ploy employed by N. Ram, looking together his earlier speech and the above response to TMK, goes like this: First, you provoke someone by proclaiming in public something like “that guy is not nice you know; he will get provoked for any silly thing I say about him” and when that guy comes out “hey, that is a silly thing you are saying about me”, you get back at him by looking at the crowd and hollering, “see, see, I told you so, right?”.

In any case, my respect for Hindu as a newspaper and Ram as a journalist have been going down; this is just yet another point on the curve.
