In Tune with Brahminical Legacy-Curtailing Debate by Invoking Karma

In Tune with Brahminical Legacy Curtailing Debate by Invoking 'Karma' REACTING to my critique of the traditional sciences congress ('Learning from a Legacy: How and What', February 5) L Kannan (Traditional Sciences and Technology', June 11) started off by saying that my way of looking at things "precludes any meaningful debate". I wonder if Kannan treats his own intervention as meaningless, since my piece at least did not preclude his debate! Kannan's is as brahminical a piece as can be, not only in skirting around the real issues, but also in using choicest epithets against the adversary. Rrahminism has developed over-killing as an art: it has 'sahasranama' to praise and as many abuses to denounce. In the same manner, Kannan used words and terms like disappointing, inadequate, effete intellectual reflex, archaic doctrinaire goggles, juvenile, gross lack of under-standing, paranoia, amusing, antiseptic talk, hog wash. armchair intellectual, slavish adherence to alien ideological baggage, petrified time warp, shibboleths, voodoo, intellectual underworld, etc, against me, my critique and my point of view.
