Now David Davidar, a former big Penguin honcho, today, sort of admitted that he indeed behaved with his female employees inappropriately and that he cheated on his wife. My only comment is: when I vehemently protest such acts of lewdness and demand exemplary punishment, I must admit that this type of lecherousness by so called 'respectable' public figures or intellectuals is not at all uncommon in the society. The recent Tiger Woods scandal is a glaring example of that. The American president does that. The Nobel laureate also does that too.
What I found disgusting is that, in order to be in the headline, a few third-grade journalists have started to reveal their closeness with David Davidar and also, began to give their character certificates to him based on their almost no or very less or dubious interaction with him. One such article was published by the Akhond of Swat. How could you really know a real man in just eight month's of professional interaction, Ms. attention-whore Nilanjana or whatever. Here.
