I have thoughts, views and opinions and, like most Indians, some pretty strong ones too. However, I may not always have the full picture to base my opinions and views on, and this is where I value your opinions and views. I am willing to listen to reason, and a different perspective, AND am even ready to change my views and opinions, if I am convinced that you have added to my experience in terms of thought, words or deeds. Thank you dear reader for your considered comment.

Secularism has a new definition in India
Misleading people in the name of secularism. Secularism continues to be defined in a perverted manner in India. Chandrababu Naidu promises to pay for pastors' homes, fund building of churches, give SC status to Christians. He also claims that AP has no money! My take:
Secularism as understood by most opposition political parties is no more about 'equal citizenship' and 'uniform application of rule of law', but more about 'vote bank' politics to retain/ come to power. This is highly amenable with 'enbloc' voters of minority communities, where the clergy holds tremendous advisory power/ role.
