A Year in India

This past week has been clouded by the recent Mumbai attacks.  While immediate concerns fall to India’s deep Hindu-Muslim conflict and the serious lack of security during the attacks, I also have to wonder what effect the situation is having on people’s mindsets: their perspectives, their psyches, the way they approach their day-to-day lives.  Below, one of my Muslim students with a picture he drew of terrorists training in the mountains of Pakistan:

To clarify, this student explained to me that his drawing was not meant to glorify the terrorists, but instead to reflect on their existence and role in his world. Pretty sad that this issue is weighing on such young kids’ minds today.

A big thank you to everyone who checked in with me during the last few days; your thoughts are much appreciated.
