Both are journalists One is assistant editor of a native language daily newspaper at Calikut in the state of Kerala the other is an editorial writer for Indias larg est Hindulanguage daily pub lished in Delhi by the Times of India My own visit to India a couple of years ago includcd a few days in New Delhi which lies alongside old Delhi It was in teresting to check up on some of my interpretations of the cen tral government scene with one who lives with it constantly On a few points I had todo a little revising But for the most part I wasnt too wide of the mark as compared with my average However several of my as sumptions with respect to the state of Kerala had to be cor rected 1 knew Kerala was the only one of Indias 14 states with a Communist government But I didnt know that the Com mies took over with only about 35 per cent of the total vote in the election two years ago LIKE TOO MANY other coun tries and Im thinking of France Italy and Greece at the is afflicted with a wide

Commies have been barred out some of the extreme measures in their platform the outright seizure of private property for example UNDER T H i CIRCUM stances I think my principal suggestion to India passed along by my newlymade friend from Kerala might have per tinence It was to rid itself of the multipleparty system at the earliest possible moment The essence of democratic government is rule by the ma jority with ample safeguards for the minority That ideal is not attainable when there is a hodgepodge of parties as there is in India and the other coun tries Ive mentioned Under such a setup selfgovernment letting one of its hands be tied behind its back in a lifeand death struggle with Com munism Naturally both of my friends from India are followers of Gandhi and practitioners of the Hindu religion This and Iheir mastery of the Hindu language constituted the one most pro nounced common bond between the two men I discovered how ever that there is no tightly fixed pattern of worship FOR EXAMPLE ont of pair would not touch beef when it was on the menu Once we settled for turkey another time for pork But the Hindu from Kerala chose beef for his main course even when confronted
