There is a saying that great intellectual stalwarts are simpletons. And so they may land themselves in trouble one way or the other.
Take the case of Tarun Tejpal, founder-editor of Tehelka. He has been traumatising many worthies by his sting operations. And one could feel scared of him, for he had all sorts of tactics to corner any wrong-doer.
Kochi: Justice (Retired) Justice V.R.Krishna Iyer has come out strongly against the report of the empowered committee of the Supreme Court on Mullaperiyar saying there were no one in the panel who were capable of understanding the technicalities of the dam.
Those who are aware of the technical aspects of dam safety should have been drafted into the panel. Or such technically capable people should have been asked to study the case and report.
He said the present report is incomplete and it should be rejected outright.
