Politicians of those days ;-) Hmm Sigh!

In November 1957, a curious article appeared in an Indian newspaper called The Modern Times. Entitled "The Rashtrapati," the piece scathingly criticized Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

While the author acknowledged Nehru’s innate drive and initiative, he also alluded to the prime minister’s undeniable autocratic streak. He urged the Indian electorate to exercise caution, lest Nehru turn into a despot. Indeed, electing this man for a third consecutive term, the article warned, would fan his ego and endanger Indian society…

The article’s author?
