OPINION

Old wounds?

Here is how the Hindu described part of what happened in the Rajya Sabha on 15 July: "Dr. [Murli Manohar] Joshi said the probe into the fire in the Sabarmati Express would re-open old wounds."

For decades Dr. Joshi was busy keeping at a safe distance from research work in physics. Then he occupied himself with the Vedic cleansing of academia through replacement of impure text books, personnel and syllabi. He cannot have been able, at least for reasons of time, to grasp that in the academic world answer books are routinely re-evaluated when students ask for that to be done. That is to say, he could not have known that tens of thousands of old wounds will have been re-opened in what was until recently his fiefdom. How much agony he could have prevented if he had not had so much on his hands.
It is true that sleeping dogs should not be disturbed: but what Dr. Joshi is opposing, and for recidivist reasons, is the possible bringing of justice to those who were wronged. His former cabinet colleague Shri Jaitley might be able to explain to him the difference between justice and vendetta: though that worthy's ability to steer clear of verbal legerdemain has not so far been demonstrated.
