We Indian sometimes don’t realize that we are gradually becoming a country of rhetoric. We don’t realize what we aspire? How could we achieve it? And what sacrifices we need to achieve our goal?

When I hear the loud noise of the so called conversions in country from both the sides of ruling BJP and opposition led by Congress in parliament it reminds me the days of Atal Biharee Vajpaee government in 1996 and 1998 when the Indian media and western media witnessed a surge of stroies of so called christian insecurity in the regime of Hindu nationalist BJP.
