I AM AN Indian by birth and by upbringing. I understand my country is not perfect. We have very hot summers. We have cities which have two seasons, a hot season and a hotter season. We have our generous share of millionaires and we have the largest slum in the world, both in the same city.
We have customs and traditions that date back a few hundreds years and are widely practiced. Arranged marriages, sacrificial offerings are very much woven into the daily fabric of India.
