I agree with the way Subhashini Ali has postulated her argument regarding the recent tragic developments in Mumbai regarding the migrants from the Purab. On the theme, Thomas Blom Hansen has penned down a fascinating narrative. The title of his volume is: Violence in Urban India: Identity Politics, 'Mumbai', and the Postcolonial City. He in this Permanent Black publication, show that the xenophobic public culture of the Indian city, specifically contemporary Mumbai, has deep roots in regional histories and contested identities. Studying how the Shiv Sena and similar militant outfits have advanced their new, plebeian culture and altered the nature of urban politics in India, the book provides a vivid picture of urban violence evenas he argues that such changes represent the 'vernacularization of democracy' in the country as a whole.

THanks a hell of a lot. It is people like Subhashini that go into the crux of teh matter and give their views thereafter ---- It is such people's views thtat count and that should be carried by responsible Groups. I sometimes feel that Group Moderators are seeking presence of people on their group ie the quantity of people and not their quality.
