" India was always a collection of communal and cultural identities; our hope lies in the strengthening of them, not in their dilution into some imagined 'Indianness'. If I know who I am, I'm going to be confident enough, secure enough, not to fear and hate those who I'm not. It's only when my self-definition is in question that I'm going to be anxious, to seek to establish the bounderies between Self and the Other, to riot and to burn."
