A thoughful post...

Annie is a fantastic writer. She has the power to capture her readers attention because she writes from the heart but is never maudlin. She always researches her stories properly and tries to bring out the true picture.

Why the sudden effusiveness about her writing?

read this.

I knew that Islam is the only religion in the world that gives women property rights, divorce rights, etc, etc. In her post, she tells us a lot about the rights that Islam provides and the reality of the world. I wont spoil it for you, so I advise to read her post.

I think for India to be truly secular, it should provide equal laws for all people. It does not make sense to have different laws for different religions in the same country. That is simply not just. After all, we live in the modern democratic world!

Apurva,
Came to your blog from Jaya's blog, am a classmate of hers at IIM-L.

Was wondering, when you say India should provide equal laws for all people; are you referring to provision of rights or obligations?

Ayan,
My mistake. I mean that all people should be governed by the same laws. Rights and obligations are different from laws, though some laws do grant rights.
