As we were getting ready to leave our lecture-hall in Manchester University, the secretary of our course announced that exiting on to Oxford Street would be difficult as a “huge” demonstration was imminent. My friend and course-mate, a senior police officer from India, enquired how big the demonstration was likely to be and guffawed when informed that between 50 to a 100 people were expected to gather. “Is that a demonstration?” he asked, “that is the average gathering at a bus stop in Delhi every day!”

Despite scepticism from some corners that an MBA may be over-rated, my experience, both pre and post business school, often revealed why the market craves branded managers.

What can you possibly learn from someone who speaks like you, whose world view is exactly like you? Whose voice is an echo of yours? Nothing. But someone who is different can challenge you and you can challenge that person and benefit from it. Multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism are the need of the day. We need differences. We need diversity. It is possible to have multiple belongings, rather than a single identity.

When I was watching Chak De a long time ago, I couldn't help but nod my head in the segment where Shah Rukh Khan talks about how we always seem to first belong to our states and then our country. This is inevitable perhaps since India is really like 30 countries in one. Yet, despite the diversity all around us we seem to deal in stereotypes rather than in really getting to know people from other states.

A society where the truth cannot even be told in stories must surely be an uncivilised one. A nation where fanatics can control a writer's imagination signals the end of our imagination as a people. An administration that voluntarily participates and colludes to violate and illegally suppress the freedom of speech of a well-known writer is no different from the ISIS. All you need to say is the word "anti-religion", throw in a few protests and the state bends to please. Freedom is our first and easiest casualty.
