    I have been telling this for at least 3-4 years.

    I have an example in my cousin. Riots finished off his business in 2002.

    He was as they say in "Pehne Huey kapday" and nothing else.

    Today he is 100 times better off he was in 2002. Started manufacturing and took opportunities that came his way while Gujarat overall developed and new projects came around.

    It's about attitude. You can get up and pick up your lives and think positively or sit in a corner and keep sulking life long.

    Business doesn't see religion, caste, race, language. It's the best way to unit every community. But people need to have passion for it.

    Business, money, economy - these are totally "secular" concepts. This is one more reason I always say, economic growth and development should be India's primary focus. The national character should be moulded towards making money. :tea:

    Just like China. Money and progress makes them forget they have no rights and that they will be trampled upon from time to time by their govt. but the huge economic development makes sure that the Chinese shut up.

    Businessmen will be businessmen.

    Money making is their aim.

    Some are by community businessmen and they can only do business.

    They take everything in their stride.

    I am sure those affected by the riots would chalk off all the hardships faced as mere losses at the bottom line, get up, brush the dust off their pants and get back to business.

    The fact that Gujarat has laid emphasis in making it easy on building large and small businesses has helped.

    After that catastrophe, I wonder if Gujarat will have a riot in the near future.

    Hopefully, all have learnt a lesson.

    As other said, businessmen are used to setbacks and have the knack of getting back on their feet faster than others. A similar thing happened with the Sikhs in Delhi. Many were killed but most got back on their feet and carried on with their lives with an ever more emboldened spirit.

    But, I must add, this shouldn't be confused as forgetting the past or forgiving the guilty.

    Time is a healer and we have to move on. Yes easier said than done but it's exactly how it is.

    Obviously those who commit crimes must be brought to justice as with every other crime. But then at an individual level, people have to move on. Just like how a family copes with an untimely death of a loved one or the bread winner. Who will they blame under such circumstances?

    The Gujrat riots have been projected by english media controlled by congress to show as if they were onesided. The fact is that over 300 hindus were also killed in those riots and are included in the count of 1100. Who killed them?
    Nearly 120 hindus were killed in police firings and rest were killed in riots by muslims. Compare this with riots within Gujrat before that and 1984 riots when not even a single Hindu was killed either in police firing or by sikhs. To blame Modi is easy. Its a national pasttime now. Congress ruled states have never ever convicted any rioter from any community for rioting. Gujrat is the only state in India where such sentencing has taken place. People may argue that this has been done due to court pressure but what one must always remember is that the chargesheet and collection of evidence is done by local police. If Modi had a hand in these riots, why wud he ensure such tight police action which results in conviction of rioters. He cud have easily directed the local police to dump evidence and water down the cases against Hindus.
    Muslims need to introspect rather than believe in a media campaign of falsehood. Plus it is the muslims of central India who have been instrumental in break up of this nation in 1947. They have always cheated the muslims of other parts of India. bengali & Pathans/Punjabi muslims never wanted separation. They were already in majority in those areas and were happy being part of India but Iqbal & Jinnah with Muslim league a predominantly UP muslim party divided this nation. same is being done in the case of Gujrat. Those who suffered have moved on but the bystandards from UP/Bihar are ridiculing them for moving on with their lives. How funny it is.
