MMGL 2010-01-15 Discussing Telangana with the Right Tone 1 of 2
On the January 15th show, I had very useful, mature and friendly conversations with three callers. This is the conversation with the first caller was Sri Vijay from Dallas, TX.
First things first. I don’t like to be in a position to retract or, worse, apologize for something I said. During this conversation, I told the caller, Vijay garu that the formation of AP was prior to the Gentlemen’s agreement. This is factually incorrect and I had to retract that assertion in an editorial insert. The reality of conducting a live show is that mistakes do happen for a variety of reasons. Regardless, I sincerely regret misstating the chronology of events surrounding one of the fundamental issues of dispute surrounding the demand for a separate Telangana state.
I am aware of the possibility that some people would like to discredit me for this error. Frankly, I don’t care about those elements. Please pay attention to the central theme in this discussion, which is the very tone of the discussion and how to arrive at a solution for the current crisis. I certainly hope some policy makers are listening. Many thanks for Vijay for this call.
