If the rumours are true, and this man is one day to play Stalin to Modi’s Lenin, then bad as these six years have been, we will look back on them fondly compared with what is yet to come. They will seem, as Akhmatova would say, like our “vegetarian years.”

I loved speaking to @MilanV about the-secular-republic-of-India-in-exile, and many other things besides. We spoke one day after I surrendered my OCI to the Consulate in New York, with the parting words: “Goodbye and Jai Hind.”

“In a raw exertion of authoritarianism, the Modi government moved to strip journalist Aatish Taseer of his Overseas Citizen of India status, akin to a Green Card, essentially banishing him from the country where he grew up.”

I am a Muslim. I always scored 90+ in Sanskrit during school days. I somehow enjoyed the language. There were many Hindu students who struggled to get even passing marks in the subject. Our Sanskrit teacher Miss Sayyada was a muslim too.That was our childhood ! #FirozKhan #BHU

As Modi frogmarches India towards the only thing Hindu about him — a 3% growth rate — we will remember that these were the milestones on the road to perdition.
