Harish Khare on the state of the UPA - a tripartite tale of competition within the Congress, between the Congress and its regional allies in virtually every state, and between the Congress and the Left. 'The Congress has frittered away its historic opportunity of reinforcing the virtues of pan-Indian values, working style and Nehruvian Weltanschauung needed to energise a sub-continental polity', he says.

Found your blog through a Google search on Rhodes scholar blogs. I'm one of this year's scholars-elect from Bangalore (just got an offer from Exeter College, second PPE) and I loved your account of your interview (I had a pretty similar response to the sports question :) ). Would you be up to offering some (sage or other) advice on Oxford, Politics subjects and academia? I comment because I couldn't find an e-mail address. Could you mail me at nakulkrishna at gmail dot com, perhaps?
