Over the past year or so, I have, via my school email group, been engaged in a very interesting conversation with an old batchmate. He has been vociferous: "Crony capitalism must be booted out. And a clean, anti-crony capitalism guy like Modi should be voted in. We have to stop the nation from being sold to these chor capitalists".
This friend happens to work for one of the most corrupt corporate groups in the country. Pick a scam, and you will find them in it.
This is what has intrigued me thoroughly since the Anna Hazare movement began: middle-class Indians rebelled against corruption. Or so it seemed.
