I rarely find good news in these challenging times, but had to pull this quote out of the Washington Post’s piece on the Jaipur blasts:
“Hindus and Muslims have lived in such close quarters in Jaipur,” said Narendra Sharma, 52, a government servant who lives next to the Hanuman Hindu temple, where one of the blasts occurred. “We have to remember that it’s a terrorist issue. It’s not our brothers and sisters.”
India exists today because of the wisdom of millions of overlooked Narendra Sharmas… The common Indian, if there is such a thing, is under-rated. We just have to give him back his voice.
