A while ago, I had written a post
about a lecture on social justice that Pratap B Mehta
was then to deliver at the University of Pennsylvania. Several arguments delivered in the lecture are now available in an article by Mehta titled “The Politics of Social Justice”, which appears in Business Standard: India 2011. The article is available online here: http://www.cprindia.org/sites/default/files/politics.pdf
. Section II of the article is particularly thought-provoking.
