Cultural Diversity, Harmony should be India’s strengths

Original Article: “Photo du Jour: A Message from Cochin to the Middle East“. Rueben Abraham’s Zoo Station.

Optimistically, I would rather focus on what is right in India. Reuben has a story up on his page of a Muslim community in Jew Town, Cochin that stepped up to help an aging Jew. Coincidentally, Kerala also has the highest literacy rate amongst all the states in India.

Maybe in a couple of decades, Religous friction and polarisation will vaporise. Maybe it won’t. Until then, a story like this would help motivate me to (foolishly?) believe it is possible to forget the bad and not inter the good.

    Even if the problem does not disappear in a few decades, at least it should becomes less sever. Even that I think would be a big achievement given that we do not live in a perfect world.

    Thanks for your comments Aurum, this is not close to an ideal world, I wish it were.
