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