Corrupt vitals

Richard Crasta opines  (in Tehelka) on the corruption in the Indian publishing industry.

His suggestion:

At least one or two Indian billionaires, or publicly funded companies, need to buy up half the Indian publishing, distribution, and bookselling industry, and install strong principles of ethics, democracy, and pluralistic representation, giving special consideration and favourable treatment to small, independent authors and publishers—and by doing this, save Indian publishing.

Richard Crasta  is the author of The Revised Kama Sutra: A Novel and What We All Need.
