My Autobiography

My family originated in the northern region of India Gujarat, with my great grand father. I don’t know much about him but all I do know is he was very rich for the time 1847. On the other hand my living grandfather is a middle class citizen of India married with three daughters and two sons.  Furthermore the elder son of the two was my father.

In addition, thousands of Muslim-owned shops and businesses have been burnt down, several thousands seriously injured and tens of thousands rendered homeless.

There is now talk of possible elections in Gujarat, and this is undoubtedly calculated to shore up the BJP’s own sagging image, as defender of the Hindus.
