I feel shocked and ashamed!

The situation in my city escalated and took a terrible turn. Last week there were communal riots in the North East of Delhi. 46 people of both communities were brutally killed, and many more were injured. The newspapers have been carrying pictures of mobs attacking people, burnt houses, broken shops, debris and mangled remains. The television news and Whatsapp videos showed us the heart-rending cries of victims and the chaos.


I feel shocked and ashamed at the turn of events. Secular values and religious harmony are under serious pressure, and no more can the youth of India be mere bystanders, but need to get involved and put a stop to the polarisation that is bifurcating Indian society.


I really liked this article by Regha Jha in the Times of India which articulated an agenda for Young Indians:
