    Who was the interviewer! Who is the host, certainly not Mr. Karan Thapar. The host or the interviewer should give others a chance to speak and not be indulging in selective listening. Journalists of his stature should not appear to be using a pre-structured narrative, an agenda template, which is used to pin the guest by speaking over him. And, I say all this because I respect Karan Thapar and am confident that he can conduct better interviews.
    Also, Mr Thapar is perilously close to assuming the avatar of brown Tim Sebastian. Tim use to be obnoxious and impertinent when interviewing the third world personalities
