Intellectual, Intelligence, Intelligentsia
I love words of English language and therefore I strongly object to author’s misuse of them.
Just because someone appropriates and assigns some labels misusing certain words with positive connotations for extreme forms of negative identity, repeatedly scripts such labels in desperation, it becomes all the more important that sane and sensible people must not reuse them.
If a moron is referred to as a master by someone that does not require everyone to address him as a master, more so sane people must refrain from doing so.
So please know the meaning of the word intellect, intellectual and intelligentsia through as many references as you want and for heaven’s sake do not use them for people like Ramchandra Guha in any context.
