Rajat Gupta, released from prison in 2016, is comfortably back in the limelight, cruising through vaunted speaking circuits in India and the United States. With his memoir `Mind Without Fear` published by Juggernaut Books, Gupta is re-writing his narrative in our post-truth world. He paints himself as an innocent victim of circumstances, manipulated by the devious intent of others, failed by the judicial system of a country to which he gave his all. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, fingertips away in publicly available documents, few are taking him on. In interviews that have recently flooded television, print and online media, Gupta proclaims his innocence, and is quoted verbatim by reporters with increasing domino effect. It`s time we step back, review his case, examine his pronouncements critically. Gupta refers repeatedly to the 2008 subprime mortgage meltdown and the subsequent economic fallout where hundreds of thousands of Americans lost their homes and livelihoods. He posits that none of the banks or mortgage lenders responsible for the crisis were brought to justice, instead it was people like him who faced the national wrath. That`s like saying someone else robbed the bank, but an innocent bystander was framed for the crime.
