    Will this verdict not go contrary to the actions done by Rajiv Gandhi's Govt in the Shah Bano case?

    The important fallout of the current Judgement is that the court's ruling settles the issue that civil law of the land would prevail over any personal laws.

    The last time this happened, we saw Namaaz at the boat club lawns and threats to dismember India. Followed by the Shilanyaas at the Ram Janmabhumi site. Wonder what happens now.

    Nothing actually.

    All are aware that everything must be All Quiet on the Western and All Fronts.

    At best, some whines, whinges, grunts, squeal and that is about all.

    I liked what Navin Kohli said on TV on the Yemen evacuation and the way every action taken is boiled down to religion.

    He said that the majority of the evacuees were Muslims and India went hell for leather to evacuate. The Govt did not first wonder what their religion would be for they were all Indians who were in dire straits.

    Yes, we must never forget that we are INDIANs,

    Yes we must not and a lot of us, that's probably the case. Our identities are deeply intertwined with the identity of India. But for some, they are INDIANS as long as it suits- recent and not-so-recent outbursts from Juliuis Ribiero, Sushil Kumar Issacs, John Dalal, Derek NO Brain, Safdar Naghori etc are an ample testimony to this.

    They are fine being INDIANS as long as things go as per THEIR wishes, rants and whimsies. If not, then we see the laments of "FEELING UNINDIAN"
