Liquor is banned in my state, Gujarat. Why? Because it is the land of Mahatma Gandhi. Going by that logic, given that Gandhiji was a preacher of non-violence, shouldn't violence be banned in Gujarat as well? I've also been thinking recently about the fact that we think that a society, state or country is always for the people and not of the people. But more on that later. It was business as usual in Ahmedabad on 25 August, when chaos took over the everyday bustle of the city.
