👀 This is how democracy dies...
389 | ...with thunderous applause
We meant to kick off our 2024 of Things today but didn't want it to coincide with the inauguration of a temple that has nothing to do with God and everything to do with winning an election.
I know a lot of my fellow Indians across the religious and political spectrum feel the same debilitating despair I do today. Some have long given up hope. But I cling on by a fingernail. Cynicism destroys our infinite capacity to make the changes we can. So whether you believe there is hope, or none, fight back by holding on to the pluralism enshrined in our Constitution.
And when you give any gifts this year, may we recommend these.
