The ignorance &snobbery of our rich and privileged people and their contempt for our poor and marginalised is nauseous. Make no mistakes! These are the same people who have kept Caste-the longest surviving system of social stratification-alive. They are India’s shame.

Ayodhya Judgement: Peace at the Cost of Justice? I analyse the Ayodhya Judgement and why in the absence of justice it will not bring the lasting peace or communal harmony.
