There's More That Unites Us Than Divides Us

If you're a woman in Delhi, stepping out of your house after 7:00 pm is asking for rape.

If you're a woman from Karnataka, going to the pub for a drink is asking for a physical assault from moral fundamentalists.

It seems we've finally found a way to bridge the Great North-South Divide in this country. That it rests of a pathological hatred of women is just fine print.

Finally, a combination of genuine anger as well as sarcasm. Columnists can never achieve the right balance.

This is an issue which never fails to make me feel physically sick.
