An Essay Towards Balkanisation

By Dr. Santosh Bhattacharya

Dr. Santosh Bhattacharyya, ex-Vice-Chancellor of the Calcutta University, known for his Left leanings, happened to be a distinguished economist and also a stubborn advocate for the maintenance of independence of educational institutions from meddling political interference of the government in narrow partisan interests.

Through this essay (smart as a whip) published in The Statesman Kolkata 28 Sep 2010 edition he analysed the perilous implications of caste-based reservations among Muslims in India – which, according to him, happens to be the best way to bring about balkanization of India in next to no time.

He, at the ripe old age of 87, breathed his last on March 27, 2011 at his residence in Kolkata.
