Abstract

The Ramon Magsaysay award, held to be the Nobel Prize of Asia, was instituted by the Rockfellers in 1957 and awarded to a number of individuals and institutions, among them 45 Indians. Considering that as defence secretary and later president of the Philippines, Magsaysay brutally put down dissenting voices and allowed America to pull the strings of power in his country, are not the recipients endorsing his politics?
