The monsoon’s have started in Mumbai bringing life to a parched city. In this time of life, we look back at the death of an Indian or more accurately Qatari national in London – M.F. Hussain.
I’ve been incredibly proud of India’s tradition of inclusion. Unfortunately since the arrival of the Shiv Sena and the Thackeray’s, Mumbai has become communally divided. After their desperate attempt to rewrite history books, try to shut down any scholarly thinking by attacking the historic Bhandarkar Institute in pune, constantly attacking all free press and movie theatres, they effectively exiled India’s most prominent artist.
Unfortunately the so-called liberal elites stood disunited while the government which already has lost the moral authority to lead, stood in silence. In the end M.F. Hussain died in a foreign country, pining for his country of birth, as a Qatari national.
A lot of people dream of living again in the Satya Yuga, in the time of Dharma, but how can we when we have lost the moral right.
