The Congress decision to boycott a global celebration of India's genius on Yoga Day is, therefore, puzzling at the very least. Is it a touch of bile in the brain? Or is the problem elsewhere? Has Congress under Rahul Gandhi got Anglicized in the 19th century sense, where "native" knowledge is considered regression? Or is Congress, once again, merely pandering to extremists among minorities who get more support from media vehicles eager for provocative sound-bites than they get from their community? I hope one is not mixing metaphors when one notes that Congress leaders are getting into all kinds of contortions in their effort to explain the inexplicable and defend the indefensible.
