            Reminds me of a man, in the 1940's Germany, who had radical notions on racial and religious purity and therefore also about the impure and outsiders. He created state and social ins utions that systematically annihilated large sections of population. Those who don't learn from history are condemned to repeat it. Be it Germany or India.

              A 70-year-old French woman was allegedly beaten up and raped in Varanasi last night, the police said. The woman has been a regular visitor to the city since 1977. For the last 11 months, she had been staying in the city and working at a centre for specially abled children. Last night, the guard working at her rented accommodation in the city's Rohaniya area allegedly snatched her cellphone, beat her up and raped her. The man is absconding.

                That's why some people are coining new names for India, one was rape-istan another was lynch-istan. What's going on is hard to fathom by ordinary people.

                Under Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist BJP, the cow has become a polarising animal and religious divisions are widening. Restrictions on the and slaughter of cows are fanning confusion and vigilantism.
