Parenti. Awful book. Man's deluded. Thinks the crowds were calmed by the film Ghandi, noting they were restless outside the cinema. Of course when they were outside they were in very long queues, when they were inside they were relieved to finally be out of them.
While we're at it, Ghandi was a villain, turning against Britain because he wasn't treated better than the blacks on a trip to south africa, then supporting Japanese imperialism. Once when he was "staying in the slums" he was in a mansion in the middle of the slums.
