We Have Just Killed Gandhi Again

Amit Varma reprints a poem by Salil Tripathi to his mother, about intolerance in the name of religion.

After reading what I’ve been writing over the years,

Some folks have complained that I just don’t get it.

I live abroad: what do I know of India?

But I knew you; that was enough.

[via ‘My Mother’s Fault’ – The India Uncut Blog – India Uncut.]

The poem has references to specific (and shameful) Indian events from the past 20 years, look them up if you’re curious. For me, the poem hits close to home.
