Prime Minister Narendra Modi, blending gravity of tone with animated emphasis like only he can, mouths his own refrain these days. “I’ll protect the Constitution with my life,” as he said in his india today interview on May 17. Why are the two opposite sides, locked in mortal combat in a hotly contested election, promising the same thing? It’s to do with some...
