My impressions of Solzhenitsyn is mixed. On one hand I have high regards for his humanitarian contributions in exposing the cruelties of Stalinist Soviet regime. On the other hand, his thoroughly right wing social view has disturbed me quite a lot.

He was a frequent ideological presence in the heated discussions we used to have while in the engineering college and later in the lawns of University College, TVM.

Today, I remember him again.
