This should be an eyeopener to the Chinese as to how tolerant Indians can be. If this type of an article had appeared in China about China, then the author would have been put in jail and tortured. However, India is not China! As usual Ashok Mitra, who is a crypto Communist is once again sitting on his favourite hobby horse - dreaming how to divide India and planting the seed of discord and separatism. One does not have to be a die hard patriot to not only be scandalised, but also inflamed at the audacity and temerity of this man, who poses to be an intellectual, to pen such seditious thought. If one goes by his argument, one could say not one type of people of India is similar to the other. So, should be divide ourselves into small countries? And even in those small countries there will be divisional difference every 20 kms. So, our districts should also become countries by this idiot's logic!
