Secularism exemplified

The New York Times, on the recent happenings in India:

“In a milestone that says much about this vast nation’s diversity and capacity for coexistence, Gandhi, an Italian-born woman raised a Roman Catholic, is making way for a Sikh prime minister who will be sworn in by a Muslim president, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.”

How true.

On a related note, we now have a scientist for a President and an economist for a Prime Minister. Symbols of a new India?

  1. what a nice thing to read. have a good mind to forward it to some people you and I know ( a few of our fellow country-men) but can’t, what a pity. In Malayalam there is a saying… the value of an eye is not realised till one loses his sight.
