THIS is India Shining

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2004 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

The Congress party won the Indian elections, defeating the "Anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat? What anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat?" BJP. All right! I hope this portends badly for radical religious parties elsewhere as well. I'm talking to you, Likud.
