Great write up. I am not fan of Churchill but respect him for lot of things on which he came out right. But his single minded (extreme conservativism) view point of saving few great to save others at later time is disaster. We can support of oppose him, but the modern conservative thought process is win for Churchill (including India). I am not fan and avoid reading anything Tharor. That discussion for some other day :)
On the other hand, these points are immaterial wrt your writing. You put together your thought process and view point strongly with great linguistic skill. Looking forward for more content from you. Cheers bud.
