Voices For Change

Gujarat, Governance and the Media is not just about Gujarat. It is about all of us in the context of a professedly multi -cultural society which should conform to the constiutional legitimacy of social, democratic and secular republic. Citizenry has to get its act together and actively engage in the governance process if these precepts are to be substantiated by practice and not insidiously violated. The events in Gujarat also clearly leave no room for sitting on the fence. As Martin Luther King pointed out long ago, ” A time comes when silence is a betrayal.”
