Amish gets it!

Barkha Dutt’s new incarnation is as the host of a talk show #openmind. Ah, the irony of Barkha Dutt being associated with an openmind!

In this video she asks Amish all the usual libtard questions on caste, tolerance and women’s rights.

Amish gives quite thoughtful and well articulated responses with which I almost completely agree. He seems to get the idea of Indian Grand Narrative. Got to read his books.

He made one insightful remark on the secularism and tolerance debate

Indian society is and has always been inherently secular, but post-independence Indian state has never been secular.

Glad he mentions RTE and government control of temples as examples of state not being secular. Got to read his new book Immortal India.
