“We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers,” said Obama, halfway through his speech. “We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth. And because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself.”
.Substitute partition for segregation and these words could have been written for India, only I can’t see the man that Mittal, Ambani and their fellow billionaires want for our next prime minister, saying them. If these hatreds were to pass, who would elect him?
In the last 24 hours, TATA Sons have issued a legal notice to me,
demanding that I remove all reference to Ratan Tata and instructing me
to tender an unconditional apology allegedly defamation.
While I have sought legal advice, I shall urge Mr Tata to engage in a
dialogue wth a fellow citizen about the issue rather than attempt to
legally intimidate me with the power and might of TATA Sons.
That TATA Sons responded with a legal notice is sufficient proof that
even a few thousand committed citizens can send tremors through the
portals of India Inc.
This is certainly not the last legal missive I shall be receiving
before January 30th. Also, no effort is being spared to compromise
this petition through fraudulent signatures, impersonations etc.
