What a joy it is to hear from Dilip Saheb about the pluralistic ethos of our great nation
I jumped at it for I have written, something similar a few years ago on the left panel of my blog http://mikeghouseforindia.blogspot.com/
Together as Indians, we are Hindus, Dalits, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Atheists, Nastiks, Buddhists, Bahá’ís, Tribals, Jews, Bo’s, Qandharis, Bakarwals, inclusive of every group of Indians. Anyone who breathes the air of the land, drinks the water, eats the food, and or chooses to be an Indian, has Indian blood running in him or her. We are all Indians and are all created equal, no one is more privileged than the other.
We should not allow any evil force to pit one Indian against the other. Each one of us should make an effort to tell them to work for an India, where Indians together can create an exemplary India. We should ask them to join us and build a cohesive India where authentic sab ke Saath, sab ka vikaas ho. Sab ka Samman ho, aur sab ko nyay mile.
