Our Tricolour

Based as it is on dialogue, compromise, reciprocity and accommodation, the idea of India does not appeal to those who seek quick and total solutions to human problems.

Interesting, though long, essay by Ramchandra Guha on the state of our nation.

I don’t agree with everything he states and dislike his use of certain cliches and extrapolation of possibly unique events, but overall, the essay does carry itself. In a way, the essay is also a reflection of how, and where, the modern, urban Indian citizen looks at himself and his country’s problems.


P.S.: The quote above, is one thing I completely agree with, though. Thus, it’s pre-eminent positioning with bold & italic :)
